Action Jackson (toy)

Action Jackson was a line of action figures and accessories manufactured by Mego Corporation in the 1970s. Three varieties of dolls were available. Two caucasian models, one with a beard, one without, and one African-American model with no beard.

The toys were marketed with a line of accessories, including battery-powered vehicles, such as a wire-controlled Jeep, a rescue helicopter, and a snowmobile.

The toys were similar in theme to the G.I. Joe line of toys manufactured by Hasbro. [cite book |author=Mansour, David |title=From Abba to Zoom: A Pop Culture Encyclopedia of the Late 20th Century |year=2005 |publisher=Andrews McMeel Publishing |isbn=0740751182 |pages=p. 2]
