Both mine have the mini comic.

Sounds like it will be the same bag with HK.

Que the innuendo.........
loose in the bigger bag around the comic? Mine has a comic bag and Skip is bagged inside with his accessories.
Pretty sure they all were, Matt. I still get excited thinking about walking in to the shop and seeing them lying there on the shelf. Best day ever. Till I discovered shiela's.

Also had the minicomic, of which I need to procure another one as mine are all gone.

In my monumental trawl through the comic in search of interesting titbits, I came across an advert in the 7th July 1984 edition. It gave details of the free Action Force figure in next week's comics (dated 14th July).
It shows a photograph of Skip, but states that he is "one of 19 action heroes on parade".

Perhaps all of the figures available on cardback were included in the comic giveaway? I need to count how many figures were available on cardbacks at that point!

I remember getting the space dude with the cap when i was a kid. Not seen one with a removable hat at the time...so he was a great figure

Would also love that comic now!

old ebay auction i found with what looks like an SAS commando...though seems to have the wrong gun?

Perhaps this one is mismatched with the comic?

Another figure that came with BAF comic.

Were earlier figures given away with the comics? When did the SAS frogman chance to black hands and logo?
