This post is especially dedicated to FORTAPACHE, who's bringing back great memories from my childhood with his amazing action figures.
Geyperman is the Spanish version of GIJoe. In fact, it almost looks like one of them. I used to have several as a kid but not a single one of them remains as my mother gave all my toys to some neigbour's kids... so all those I've got at the moment are new ones.
Geyperman action figures were first made in Spain in 1974 by GEYPER and it followed the modified Palitoy ActionMan, and in 1979 patented the second generation body, ore realistic. It was produced untl 1982.
In 2002 BIZAK relaunched the Geyperman without success and it stoped produceing it in 2005. Later in 2011 they started producing it again in limited collectors editions and using the original moulds from the 1970s and 1980s.
This Legionario (soldier of the Spanish Legión) wear the traditional uniform and comes with the Legión's pet, a goat... Of all the geyperman figures I got this is the only one from which I kepi its complete original box, as you can see on pics.2 and 3.
On pic4 you can see some actual legionarios... no comments needed.
