Evel Knievel Archive



Ideal began producing Evel Knievel figures in 1972. It marked a change of direction for the toy industry, moving from fantasy figures to real life heroes. A year later Ideal released the classic Stunt Cycle with launcher. It was an instant hit and numerous other vehicles were produced.

Evel stood about 6" tall, making him a head shorter than Mego figures.
