Action Man Wiki

Action Man: X Missions is a direct-to video movie animated by Reel FX studio and the second CGI Action Man movie.


While a zoo guard is reading about men's abductions, he is ambushed by little robots, who then proceed to take DNA from the zoo creatures.

The next day, Action Man, Flynt and Red Wolf are trying to capture a give it a bath. Sir Arthur Strong had borrowed the tiger to use it for their training. When he goes out to meet the van that will be taking the tiger back to the zoo, he is tazered and kidnapped by a disguised No Face, who takes him to Dr. X in his new Antarctic base.

Meanwhile, Action Man finds Sir Arthur's secret cell phone and finds a text message from ISD asking the Action Force to go to the zoo. There they find the video of the robots, which Flynt names an UCO (Unidentified Creepy Objects) and rescue a bear. The tissue sample vial found in the bear enclosure is marked with Dr. X's logo. Figuring that it had to be Dr. X who kidnapped Sir Arthur, even though X is supposed to be dead, Action Man decides that his next course of action should be to break into ISD headquarters in London.

Once Action Man gets down to the boss of ISD we learn that he is not actually an ISD member and has no clearance but needed to talk to the top brass immediately and didn't have time to wait on hold. So, they go down to the briefing room where Action Man shows all the evidence, including the vial with the X logo, but they don't believe him anyway. After all, Dr. X is supposed dead (after his base exploded in Action Man: Robot Atak).

Then the X Robots arrive!

Action Man helps the ISD guards fight off the robots; then, realilzing that they were just a diversion, he runs straight to Sir Arthur's office where he finds...Sir Arthur, who is No Face in disguise, and he's actually there stealing a code card for the entire world's sattelite control systems so Dr. X, with help of Professor Gangrene, can shut off the world's sattelites and launch his toxic pods without being discovered. After a daring motorcycle chase and a game of chicken, No Face gets away. ISD then sends Action Force and Sir Arthur's daughter Anna Belle Strong, AKA Rebel, to chase him down to the South Pole.

They head down there on snowmobiles and a snowboard. There, they fight some Snow Wolves and more X Robots. Then, Red Wolf and Flynt create a distraction so Action Man and Rebel can get inside. While inside, they are captured by Coil Crushers and watch helplessly as Sir Arthur is toxified with the DNA of all animals and X himself. This turns him into Tyrannotox, who emerges from the Venom Chamber fully armored and beats the two good guys who allow themselves to be captured so they can get more information on X's plan.

But they're locked up, and Dr. X blows up the whole facility. Luckily, Rebel is able to steal all the information from his computer before everything explodes. They make their escape with the help of some street luge sleds and a ventilation shaft leading to a hangar where Dr. X carelessly left a Thunderwing Jet when he abandoned the site.

Back at ISD, they've found an antidote and are about to find the new base. By locating the intersection of all the orbits of the first satellites to be shut down, they find Dr. X's new base, an island of the coast of Chile, that is shaped like a giant X. They head there accompanied by a plane carrying the antitoxin. Dr. X's Launch pad is fully operational. They just don't dare to launch anything until all the sattelites are down because they don't want ISD to find them. Action Force arrives there and begin to de-toxifying Dr. X's troopers. Of course, it takes more than that to save Sir Arthur. They shove him down onto the launcher to undo the electromagnetic induction done to him in antarctica, and he is saved. Then, ISD comes and arrests Dr. X, along with No Face, but Gangrene escapes (only to reappear in the following movie). The world is safe once again.


Reel FX also animated G.I. Joe: Valor Vs Venom, a movie based in another Hasbro franchise. This movie has many similarities to Valor vs Venom:

  • The main plot (injecting beast DNA in abducted victims) is taken from valor vs Venom
  • The abduction and transformation of Sir Arthur Strong is also reminiscent to what happens to General Hawk in VvsV
  • Many character models from VvsV are re-used (see below)
  • The Shipwreck model, sans hat and with blonde hair, is used on Sir Arthur.
  • The Beachhead model is colored blue and used as the ISD guards
  • The Scarlett model is used on the character Rebel
  • Snow Wolves and Coil Crushers appear almost unchanged, fulfilling the same roles as in VvsV.
  • A hair-less version of the Venomous Maximus model is used as his X-Missions counterpart, Tyrannotox. and maybe the Action Man model is a modifed duke model.
