  • Action Man 40th Anniversary Colditz Set..

    I managed to get this set from the Modellers Loft shop (UK) some years back, it was much cheaper back then. This set doesn't come supplied with an Action Man figure, I added it to the set..

      Hi Ian,

      The sets are getting quite expensive now, I think I payed about £35 - £40 for it, ebay is the best place to find one these days, expect to pay around £50 - £60 for it though.

        I'm well aware, I look for them every now and again.

        After conversion to USD it gets hellish.

          Crikes! £120 & $168.34 is definitely expensive. Never mind, you will eventually come across a cheaper set at some point, good luck.

                I regret not having bought this set when they were available from Cotswold here in the states. I think they were running for about $75.00 at the time.

                Excuse me, gentlemen, I have to get back to work. My backside isn't going to kick itself.

                  The Colditz set is high in price at the moment, but there will be a time when the prices dramatically drop.

                    It's nice to see the contents. I like the German uniform, I only have the first AM40 release in green. I wanted the other reissue SOTW, but missed them as well as this set. And as others have noted, prices have jumped.

                      There will be a time when the prices will drop for this set, so keep an eye open on ebay. I forgot to mention, the German backpack doesn't come with this set, I also added the black rope as a small extra. It's definitely a must have set.

                        Quick question - the overcoat for the British officer, is it the same as the AM Duffle Coat or is it a repro of the Overcoat from carded bits?

                          I'm not sure if the escape officers overcoat was also available separately on a card? I always thought it was unique to the Colditz set, I can't get to my Action Man books to check right now.. The duffle coat has a hood and is totally different than the escape officers coat.

                          Here's the AM duffle coat:

                            That's a cool set. I too wish that I would have bought one when Cotswold had them in stock.
