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

Dave.
I actually have that guy, Toltoys mailaway in NZ. That would have been around 1986/87, Manta as well. Was the mAnt released in the UK?

OK, so the super trooper was the UK equivalent of the Steel brigade? If Dave's right the price of that bugger will sky rocket.

so Super Trooper (thanks, got ABBA in my head now) , 1988 and Hooded Commander around 1987? OK,

added Motor viper. Cheers Dave.

Yeah it is Steel Brigade; http://www.yojoe.com/action/87/steelbrigade.shtml

So there were three mailaway figures during the Hasbro period between 1987-1989, after then, not sure.
