Thomas Salter: Action Man Rub-Down Transfers [1981]



Confectionery-style packets:

"8p"; "Four sheets containing 8 colour transfers to use with Action Man Military Panorama."

The Action Man Military Panoramas (four sets available) had Salter serial numbers 090/134.

These packets aren't marked "Letraset Action Transfers" because by now Letraset had been acquired by Esselte. However, Thomas Salter continued to operate independently for a couple of years…


And no — I'm not sure why so many of these transfers have been cut 'on the wonk'!

The Box:

Here's the box the Action Man Transfer Packets came in… both before & after Splatting.
