Identification please

I saw this mini figure on eBay and it tickled a memory in the deep recesses of my brain, but for the life of me I can’t place it. Anyone have an idea?

  1. Mobile Action Command (MAC) by Matchbox/Lesney . This is a nearly forgotten line from the mid 70’s that pre-dates nearly every 3 3/4″ line, although they are a touch smaller than true 3 3/4″ (10 cm) figures [Takara Microman (1974) probably gets the nod as the first true 3 3/4″ line].

    This is the 1st gen figure which was a bit wonky. They were later redesigned into a slightly larger, more realistic “2nd gen” figure but the newer body style was disproportionately larger than their impressively large selection of vehicles and playsets.

  2. They were also sold as “Action Jack”, I think, well into the ’80s. I don’t remember seeing any science fiction ones, but they did all sorts of the things. Sold in little matchbox looking boxes, rather than on a card, iirc.
