As you can see the cardart the Nordic release has been totally repainted into the Non Violence theme.

I saw that on the Airedevon documentaries, it really surprised me that the artwork was redone to be non-violent

Just a question, are those the taller cardbacks?

It's always interesting to see these kind of packaging differences between international versions.

One has to wonder why it's considered unacceptable to portray weapons & violence in the packaging artwork yet deemed perfectly acceptable for the toys themselves to still have weapons as accessories.
More news, as its made, from new Action Force!

That's very interesting reading Baron, it was the same in Sweden with the non voilence thinking.
It's strange that when some of the released figures cardart was totally repainted whilst some was released just like the original cardart with wepons and all.

Yes these are the taller ones which was released in 89 in Sweden.
