The Mystery Machine Starts it's Engine

Postby gung-hoeddie » 24 Apr 2013 06:45

I have heard a rumour from a source so strong I can't dismiss it, and now I need to find one as i think it's real.

Recondo may of been released as a carded figure on a palitoy card, everything palitoy did well I can really believe it.

I'm not convinced. In over a decade I've never seen it. I think it's the Loch ness Monster of action force.

Are we talking the whole set, canoe etc, or just the figure itself carded?

Maybe some :recondo:'s may of gotten (miss)carded right @ the end to clear the stockrooms?
More news, as its made, from new Action Force!

My childhood :recondo: was carded, not on a Palitoy card but on one of those "Action Figure" four-packs.

I got his kayak separately, funnily enough, in a department store flood damage sale.

Where did the rumour spring from?

Presume you mean a "proper" card with bio and all?

I know Buddosky agrees with you. But I'm not convinced! As a miscard - possibly. As a full blown bio'd up fig? No. None ever seen, not even a cardback. Convince yourself otherwise and this becomes your Yeti hunt Ed! A quest you'll never prove or disprove!

Maybe but worth a look though, bit like a UK picture box cosmic cruiser.

I've never seen one in the the ten years of BFTB, no recollection of one as a child either.

It's one of my clearest memories, Recondo on a Palitoy Cardback with Recondo Bio hanging on a peg in Fenwicks, Newcastle. This was well before the end of the line. In addition, I'm quite certain that the Silent Attack was never released in the North East as I searched high and low for it before a friend got me one from Leeds.
