Thanks for all the comments guys.
Humby, most of the design team are still alive I believe. About 18 months - 2 years ago, I went to the Palitoy talk they sometimes do at the museum. About half the audience was actually the Palitoy design time. I took the chance to speak to them after the event - in particular Bob Breakin, who I recall was the Head of the design team and put together the original Series 1 concept and designed items like the cardborad HQ (and Death Star). I told him about my enjoyment of Action Force and mentioned BFTB. He seemed to know about us - presumably The Baron and Dave Tree? I gave him my e-mail address, but I didn't get his! I've not heard from him since then. Nice guy though.
