Does anyone have a copy of the Action Force TV advert? All I can remember is in the final scene it zoomed in on Skip standing atop the Command Centre. I actually taped it when I was a kid but sadly on Betamax.

I actually checked a few old tapes looking for it a few moths back, no luck

It came out at the beginning of a new term, if I recall, or was it nearer christmas? Anyway, I sat glued to the telly during the adverts for it every morning before going to school.

hello all,
my family lived abroad when i was a kid and the first xmas we spent back in the uk coincided with the release of Z,Q,SAS and SPACE FORCE ranges. having access to all these cool toys at xmas time made it a time i remember well, so the TV ad sticks in my mind. it took the form of a news report with the reporter behind a desk Trevor Macdonald style. the screen cut to close ups of the ENEMY and when it came to THE BARON his name was pronounced ARNBLAAD rather than IRONBLOOD. this was the cause of many playground argument as i think the ARNBLAAD pronounciation sounds classier and my fellows thought it should be IRONBLOOD. the action on the ad cut to footage of the Z FORCE BATTLE TANK in motion as i remember. when i saw that ,i wanted that tank but had to wait a few xmas's until i got one. :baron: :steeler:
