1977 Gabriel Toys Hal Needham Stunt set
1977 saw Gabriel Toys try an interesting experiment in action figures.
Instead of licensing a hollywood movie, they sought to captilize on the making of a movie by creating a set based on then legendary stuntman Hal Needham. .

Gabriel devoted six pages of the 1977 catalog to this line and it was clearly their big feature.
The unique concept allowed kids to film an action sequence in a Western complete with breakaway sets, a camera and our titular Stunt Man, who wasn't a household name.
This really was a great and well made concept.
This should have been as big as Evel Knievel...
