Indeed. Where are Kraken Kapturists when you need them, eh? That's the question.

It's all a cunning :zforce: plan seeing as freezing :kraken: s the *normal* way is not exactly effective as a method of liquidation.

Hmm, seems this were possibly Wave 2 concepts. :shock: :eyebrow: :. :idea: 8)

I guess we shall find out everything when Baron von Tree loads illumination shells into his Palitoy howitzer.

Unproduced Action Force Concepts by Dave Tree » Thu Apr 19, 2012 3:57 pm

Listening to a couple of the Spec Ops Podcast, I'm aware many here are big fans of unproduced concepts, so I thought I'd share a couple here that were first shown publicly at Roll Out Roll Call in March as part of the 'Leave No Man Behind' presentation.

These are two unused Palitoy Z-Force concepts, the first being a modular/ pod base that were individual toys that could be clipped together to form a larger one. These two sketches show missle, radar and gun turrets:


Image

Image

These concepts were proposed in June 1983, but were abandoned and re-colours of the Hasbro Pac-Rats were issued instead.

The second is from August 1984 and features a larger cross terrain vehicle. There is another sketch which features a ramp with a Pac-Rat loading into the rear of the vehicle suggesting a troop/ equipment transport. Sadly it was around this time the Palitoy Design Department was made redundant and the move over to full Hasbro product was intended, but cool to see 'what could have been' from the UK designers:


Image

Image

These will form part of a book I'm working on all about Action Force, but goes to show that some of the ideas planned were in no way a watered down version of GI-Joe and a strong product line in it's own right, however in the meantime enjoy :)

BLOOD FOR THE BARON!

:quick:

PS. Bonus material:

Here's an alternate rear of the ATV, the slide was badly warped, so sadly this is the best it can come up with showing a SHAFT packrat loading in the rear:


Image

This image predates the other two by a month and was drawn in July 1984.
If you look carefully in the rear of the vehicle below, there is a compartment draw open to the righthand side and you can just make out the face of a person lying face up 'coffin' style. One of the designers mentioned this was a prisioner stasis unit, but could have also been used for medical recovery too.

There is n article on actioncommand.net about 3D printing and some fella using it to make toys. SO getting these fellas knocked up could be a reality!

The article is on the patches of pride website. Will post a link later when I'm not on my tablet (Mrs 463 sleeping after night shift)
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?
