I was clearing up the release dates, 88 not 86.

Although great for reference users shouldn't use YOJOE for UK release dates/ waves as the US were around 1-3 years ahead and assortment mixes were different to what we had. As Baron said earlier it refers to US releases.

Yeah, if we can get a definitive release listing it would be nice to have the option of viewing the archives by date.

Airedevon has promised to dig out her UK catalogues when she gets the opportunity.

That's what I discovered too. Typically 2 years behind the US releases. Also a lot of the 1984 figures, lasted nearly 5 years.

I stumbled across this post a bit by accident but I've got a couple of photos of some Action Force leaflets/posters for 88 and 90 that I've put up. It shows that the Thunder Machine appears to have an 88 release with Thrasher and in both 88 and 90 Slaughter was Slammer. It also shows the mix of waves we got.

I have a few more things I can add Baron do you want pics to accompany already posted filecards as well? In particular I have the anti-aircarft gun and maybe other figures you can add.
