The first book devoted to the cult hero of the years 1970-1980!

Created in 1971 by Mattel, the action figure Big Jim has benefited from many technical innovations: arms with soft skin, biceps that inflate, and a "karate chop" operated by a button placed on his back. Alternately sports champion, secret agent, explorer, diver, cowboy, pirate or astronaut pilot, Big Jim has allowed millions of children to develop their imagination by inventing adventures in all these worlds.
For the first time, the original team of Mattel designers was interviewed at length to tell the story of this famous line of toys from the 1970s to the 1980s.
Discover the artistic and technical backgrounds of Big Jim's creation, astonishing information and fascinating anecdotes illustrated by more than 600 images of the best archival documents, many photographs of the original toys, as well as exclusive visuals made with miniatures sets, as in the toy catalogs of the time!
