The show introduced several new team mates for Action Man which were then made into toys. The action figures of Natalie Poole and Knuck have become very rare collectors items. At Joecon 2010, a convention exclusive Q-Force action figure of Natalie Poole was released.
The series was only available on VHS in the UK due to rules on advertising to children (a toy could follow a program but not the other way around). The series was later released on DVD but the episodes on the DVDs are in a random order and many episodes have been released numerous times while several have not been released at all. This has caused confusion amongst many fans. On 17 February 2015, Mill Creek Entertainment released Action Man- The Complete Series on DVD in Region 1. This marked the first time all episodes of the show had received a DVD release.
