Thank you, gentlemen

I know, that's the bizarre thing! As I have said before, I don't even collect MOC!

And yes, perhaps I should make a wall chart!

Re: Rogue one.

Loved it. Absolutely loved it.
Desperately fighting the urge to go out and buy the figures!
Also, as I saw it at imax, I got a 7 minute preview of the new Dunkirk movie.
7 minutes of extreme tension... it's going to be an amazing movie.

Phase 3

• Phase 3 (Late 1984/Early 1985) Description : The Cobra/AF period of Duke vs Cobra Commander. This sees Palitoy as a sub-division of General Mills producing, or just selling on their behalf, Action Force and Cobra toys. There is a great deal of overlap between what went before and the new paradigm....

Phase 2E

• Phase 2E (Later 1984) Description : Again, not a distinct Phase as such, this time more a winding down of AF production, and as Palitoy scramble to liquidate stock, we see an increase in ‘Friday afternoon specials’ –mis-carding, figures with bad paint, bad plastic and two left legs. Sadly, the dre...

Phase 2D

• Phase 2D (Early [April?] 1984) Description : This has been known as the Second Wave (The ‘Doofus’ Red Shadow, for example). This phase is defined as seeing all of the new figures from Phase 2C, plus many of the more popular originals from Phase 2a being made in a hard plastic, with shinier, cleane...

Phase 2C/2D Interface

• Phase 2C – 2D Interface (Early 1984) Description : Not a proper Phase as such, more a slight crossover between the two. Characterised by the use of the new moulds that would later be found in Phase 2D, as well as new paint types and patterns (for example, the sharp camouflage on the Z Force figure...

Phase 2C

• Phase 2C (Early 1984) Description : This phase sees the expansion of the range, and whilst figures of Phase 2A/B continue to be made, new figures and vehicles are added, and more figures are borrowed from the US GI Joe range of toys. The medal numbers on the card backs, numbers 45-55, allow us to ...
