man i am so stoked by this! Will try and get the issue here in Oz. Maybe the folks at DDP and Hasbro do look at the forums and online communities after all! Pats on the back to everyone involved at this site and the Joe community - raising the profile this year has paid off!
Merry Christmas all round!
YES!!!! DDP and HASBRO DOES look at these forums and others that we been posting at and this appearance by ACTION FORCE is the proof of it!
And if DDP sees a sales spike even if its only 200 or so, then we can definately count on seeing more.
we can do this! if all the members here that dont regularly get this comic buy this single issue well see the sales spike and DDP will too and they will give us more. This is our time to strike while its still hot.
I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone for the support and help on the Coloring project, Red Dawn and many of the other things we have been doing this year and next, if it wasnt for all of you this would never have happened. and I want to also specifically point out the BARON AKA James Marshal as he should get an personal thank you for doing this site for doing all the classic scans and making everything just sooo cool and fun here!!
no get this comic!!

This is of course a great start and hopefully if people enjoy the AF GIJoe repaint characters then maybe there will be a reson to bring in the rest. Awesome!
I think the BEST way to make this happened ( including bringing back the original red shadow characters ) is for as many of us as possible who dont usually buy the comic or the individual issues is to BUY this issue so lets show them what we AF fans can do!!
and of course sign the petition too!
Merry christmas everyone!

I just got mine too and ya it was a good read, it was great to see our AF members too, I must of looked at that one page 100 times LOL with a big smile on my face.
Good story , good read , and an extra bonus of ACTION FORCE!!
Im really hoping this issue sees a spike in sales, even if its only a 100 that will be a good sign because usually sales drop by a 100 every issue.

I'm guessing it's the 2nd Moondancer, from the AF range.
It's a toss-up between him and the 2nd Dolphin, but the hair clinches it for me.

EDIT: LOL posted at the same time
Just looking at that panel again, I can see Hunter, Quarrel and Blades but how do you figure the other guy is Moondancer? Are we talking the later 'AF' (3rd gen) Moondancer or the Space Force one? I know they're basically the same guy but the uniform is so generic it could be anyone - and it's definitely not a Space Force uniform... Any thoughts? Cheers
ya we're talking about the later AF uniform/figure but they are the same character, according to thier file cards
the only other person who remotely looks like it is the Dolphin Character but he has BLACK HAIR and Moondancer has Blond Hair. so it has to be him and not Dolphin.

Add the fact that the jointed Action Force figs are considered UK exclusives by the US fans and you can see why they're grouped together.
