You know what?
I am now convinced the 1983 giveaway didn't happen... which means I'm losing my marbles.
It must have been the 1984 giveaway mis-remembered, which has blown my mind!

June 14th 1984 editions of the following IPC comics:
Eagle
Battle Action Force
Tiger

The following figures confirmed:
SAS Squad Leader
SAS Frogman
Z Force Radio Operator
Z Force Captain
Z Force Sapper
Z Force Radio Operator
Space Force Commander
Q Force Deep Seas Defender
Red Shadows Black Major

Don't say that... apparently Jonesy has quite a testicular collection going and he may well take you up on the offer!

Still trying to track down the seemingly imaginary 1983 giveaway, and oddly enough, I have just read a blog post from a Kiwi talking about the 1984 giveaway and how cool it was. Here, have a read

Made me think of you! (It's not you, is it?)
No mate, same situation though. I scraped up every penny I had, next day I went back with more cash and they were gone. Luckily I had BAF on regular order.

I've noticed with mine that the figure with the BAF comic is in a made in Hong Kong Baggie whereas the figure with the Eagle comic is loose in the bag. I've got two other figures in the Hong Kong bags but no comics (Cap & Sap)

Innuendo... here? Never.
You're clearly on the wrong site, young man. Take your loose sack and kindly leave.

loose in the bigger bag around the comic? Mine has a comic bag and Skip is bagged inside with his accessories.
