European Action Force - Z Force Battle Tank (with Steeler)



In the early 1980s, the European toy company Palitoy released a line of 3 3/4" military toys called Action Force. While most of the line was entirely original and similar to Kenner's Star Wars toys in articulation, many early G.I.Joe figures and vehicles were recolored, renamed, and incorporated into the Action Force line. Action Force toys were sold in most parts of Western Europe - including the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Spain, West Germany, Italy, and Greece.

Pictured above is the Z Force Battle Tank. It's a repaint of the American Motorized Battle Tank (MOBAT). The Action Force version is green with black and red highlights - as opposed to the drab green American version. The set included the exclusive figure Steeler.
