Hmmmm...

No definite idea, not without seeing them or having more info!

Best guess:
935112 is the order number, or batch number, or... you get the idea.
The Space Team is obviously Space Force
UK/IT probably refers to the card backs - so it has English and Italian writing.
24 is probably the number in each box.
So, each box contained 24 Space Force figures on English/Italian card backs
This sort of thing, in fact

No idea who was in there, though. Could be a selection of any number of figures.

The same is for the other boxes, except Acc. Pack Asst. is probably Accessory Pack Assorted
UK would mean it's in English only, and again there's 24 of them.
Probably this sort of thing, if it's Space Force, but who knows - it could be any of the Accessory Packs

Where did you get them?
How big are they?
C'mon man, stories, information!

Nice!
I think the codes refer to shipments or batches, or even individual boxes, rather than actual merchandise inside, which is the figure itself. This would be why you can't find a number on the card back.
Excellent stuff Slim, so you have Space Force, Q Force, Z Force, and Accessory Pack. No sign of SAS or Enemy?
Fill them with MOC? Let me know if you can fit 24 in!

Where did you get them, if you don't mind me asking?

I really like this sort of throwaway ephemera - completely pointless but still part of the story... and rare, not many shops would have kept these - they really are meant to be thrown away!

Great stuff.
Lovely label!

There, bottom left, under Cat No. the code - 935110
So the codes on the other boxes refer to the catalogue numbers
In fact... *scurries to the archives
Yup, here
http://www.bloodforthebaron.com/toys/00 ... es/013.jpg
Check out the catalogue numbers...
That's what you have - 935110

So by extension, your previous catalogue numbers should also be in there - 935112
http://www.bloodforthebaron.com/toys/00 ... es/016.jpg
Accessory Packs are also on that page - 935302 - so they are Space Force Battle Gear Packs.

Excellent stuff!

Interesting it says they were made in Hong Kong... I always thought that Action Force was actually made in Coalville, Leicestershire.
Anyone able to shed some light on this?
