For the first two you are correct, but for the Sgt Slaughter, he was definitely released in the UK (1988), V2 with the Tripple T and V3 with the Warthog - I think I may have missed that one?

Sgt Slammer was an Indian version from Funskool.

Ok here's the answer ( I have erred - therefore I am not a Skeletron) ; it would seem we have found a packaging variation. The Indian (funskool) one is Sgt Smasher. So Slaughter has smashed the slammer.

So to surmise V2 (UK V1) can be either Slaughter or Slammer and V3 (UK V2) is Slammer.

Yeah, the Baron and I looked at 3 leaflets. 1 was v2 Slaughter, the other the same called Slammer and the last was V3 Slaughter called Slammer.

Annoying eh?

He came out early 1986 some of the earlier Action force carded figures were issued with a small free comic that showed the figure saving the day hehe and that you could save up Action force points and send away for him.heres a picture of mine.
He came with Helmet and shield and sub amchine gun all silver which often always gets scratched but might I say mine is mint hehe

That was still during the BAF era, right? I would have thought it would have arrived during the AF: International heroes era? Strictly speaking 86 would be the end of the Palitoy AF figures then, tho I guess that figure was still available in the Hasbro era.

Nice figure, mint you say? Is there any other way you collect em ;)

I've got an ad somewhere, but I'm sure he was 88/89 onwards in the UK.

The first Hasbro UK mailway was a hooded Cobra Commander available through Woolworths, which needs to be added to the list.
