Slightly off topic, but do any of you remember seeing the Battle Gear packs available at retail back in the day? I only saw them in the "YES IT'S TRUE!" Action Force/Star Wars promotional leaflet.

I didn't but most of my palitoy stuff was bought at clearance though some shops still had plenty at full price. That and Minesweeper / Medic were the ones I don't ever remember seeing.

Indeed, but only about this time of year in the last weeks before Christmas 1984. Maybe was only in early Dec 84. Saw :enemy: :sas: :zforce: and possibly :space: , but only in limited locations, maybe larger stores in a city centre or two.

Bought :enemy: IMMEDIATELY cos :shadow: needed some more 7.62 fire support .... and the :enemy: mortar of course.

Was gonna buy more after New Year 85 (along with :doc: :scout: and :jackal:) but that plan tanked ....

... :quick: FIXE SCHEISSE!
