Don't know. We know that Hasbro inherited Palitoy's IP rights, but no idea about the actual moulds. More than likely they were donated to the crown when the company was liquidated (see the 'No Man Left Behind' article on the homepage).

It's not ringing any bells, if anyone would know it'd be Dave Tree.

Yeah someone posted that about a year or so ago can't remember where though.
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

Exactly a year ago was the unveiling of Special Weapons Force, most likely it's in that sub-forum.

surely they must have aquired the rights to the Shadows if they are now producing them ?

were the Red Shadows a seperate trade mark to Action Force ?
