“ Big Jim” Live-Action

"Big Jim", a live-action film adaptation to be produced by Mattel Films and directed by Dan Mazer, adapts Mattel's "Big Jim" line of action figure toys produced from 1972 through 1986, 'inspired' by Hasbro's "G.I. Joe", involved in spy situations, space exploration and a whole lot more:

 " 1975, Mattel decided to create an extension of the main toy line making 'Big Jim' the leader of a 'Mission Impossible'-like group of heroes for hire. 

“This series is easy to identify because all related products have a howling wolf as its principal image and character art by Jack Kirby. 

“The members of the spy group were named 'P.A.C.K.', which is an acronym derived from 'Professional Agents – Crime Killers'. 

“On its initial release, the series presented Jim as "Commander", this time as the leader of a counter intelligence strike team. 

“He and two of his most loyal friends joins forces to against a hooded villain known as "Zorak, the ruler of the Underworld"..."
