The Captain Action doll-- from Ideal!
Captain Action actually began life as an action figure from Ideal Toys, a popular toy-maker in the 1960's.  Based on the success of the G.I. Joe, Captain Action was a posable doll for which a boy could buy many accessories.  What made Captain Action unique was the nature of the accessories:  Captain Action kits could be purchased that would transform the figure into many popular TV and comic-book heroes-- Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Green Hornet, and the Lone Ranger to name but a few.  Captain Action's partner, Action Boy, could be transformed into the junior heroes, like Robin or Kato, and you could even purchase a kit to turn their dog into Krypto!
