Mutiny TV star Anthony Middleton shares snap with 50th Anniversary Action Man on social media

Real life Action Man, TV’s Anthony Middleton, has shared a snap of himself and a 50th Anniversary Collector Edition Action Man Scuba Diver with his 170,000 strong social media following.

The popular TV personality is best known for having served in the Special Boat Services (SBS), his role in the series SAS and more recently, travelling 4,000 miles across the Pacific Ocean in Mutiny. With a plethora of adventures under his belt, Ant is fast becoming the UK’s most loved action man, so the pairing could not be more fitting.

Peter Rooke, Managing Director of Art + Science International, which supplies Action Man under license from Hasbro, said: “I must say seeing one of the modern day action men excited by his Action Man figure was a key moment in our launch of the new models. We thought that with his background in the SBS, a personalised Scuba Diver was very apt, and we hope that he and his children get lots of enjoyment out of it!”

The 50th Anniversary collection includes: Action Soldier, Footballer, British Infantryman, Ski Patrol, Paratrooper, Scuba Diver and special limited edition Bobby Moore Action Man. All of which are available now to purchase from a number of leading UK high street retailers, independents, and specialist/online retailers. Inspired by the best of the Action Man brand, each figure features gripping hands, the realistic “flock” hair and the famous scar and is presented in a special gift box, with the iconic Action Man dog tag and booklet.
