Phase 3

Postby Hopper » 20 Dec 2016 21:07

• Phase 3 (Late 1984/Early 1985)

Description:
The Cobra/AF period of Duke vs Cobra Commander. This sees Palitoy as a sub-division of General Mills producing, or just selling on their behalf, Action Force and Cobra toys. There is a great deal of overlap between what went before and the new paradigm. So we see a Cobra Roboskull, and an AF Triad Fighter, among others. There is also a continuation of the liquidation of stock from Palitoy – so three packs, discount boxes, etc.

Cardbacks:
Types 27, 28, 29, and 30.

Anyone would think you had more interest in the card backs than the figures lol

A very good insight to the method in the madness of palitoy

Great research

I know, that's the bizarre thing! As I have said before, I don't even collect MOC!

And yes, perhaps I should make a wall chart!
