Action Jackson was a line of action figures and accessories manufactured by Mego Corporation in the 1970s. Three varieties of dolls were available. Two caucasian models, one with a beard, one without, and one African-American "Action Jackson" model with no beard.

The toys were marketed with a line of accessories, including battery-powered vehicles, such as a wire-controlled Jeep, a rescue helicopter, and a snowmobile.

The toys were similar in theme to the G.I. Joe line of toys manufactured by Hasbro.[1]
