If so wonder how they decided to use :stalker: instead.
Yes, renamed 'Double Clutch' in the modern era due to copyright reasons

Re: F-Force????? Probably not...?

Perhaps Mister Tree has some documentation to clarify the "F" ? ... or even just if it's a term used verbally when talking to old employees of Palitoy, or, for that matter, because it's a sixth force and F is the sixth letter of the alphabet... I think this is a possibility, hence why I write that ...

Re: F-Force????? Probably not...?

i think WE should decide. what about a poll- SW Force or F Force. whatever the outcome its canon. Bill That brings up a point I mentioned when we were looking for a name for Haggis - noone will ever really answer it, and as the main dedicated site to AF then our decisions on the unknown and unlikel...

Re: F-Force????? Probably not...?

I tend to agree with you to some extent. I went looking for WW2 references for Special Weapons (albeit at the end of a night on call) and only found reference to the Fat Boy A Bomb. I'm not sure that the force would be Special Wpns Force though, as early literature regarding Z Force refered to them...

Re: F-Force????? Probably not...?

It makes more sense unless for some reason there's extra info - like a letter etc using F Force as a proper name. On the evidence of the clues in the article itself, F-Force seems less likely than Special Weapons Force.

F-Force????? Probably not...?

Please excuse the slightly contentious title, it's intended to provoke interest more than anything else. I loved the article by Dave Tree - exceptionally well put together and researched. However, I'm not sure that F-Force was the name, and here's why (the argument depends on there being no other fa...

Re: If the 2009 con exclusives are a RED SHADOW themed set......

"I am you, and you are me, That's why we have our own army." Shadow. So it is. That one had me scratching my head. The guy not wearing black could be alluding to Wilder Vaughn formerly being the Black Major? Either way it looks like this is it! I've not yet read the Red Shadows IDW story, but if WV...

So this is what i think the hints refer to 2009 3.75" convention set hints: "Imagine something old and something new, Something foreign and nothing blue." Definately the red shadows this is a general hint and refers to the RED SHADOWS IN GENERAL "I see my image reflected back, And who is that perso...
