That's the way the bike came!! :-)
It was already completely built in the package-- missiles and all! (But you're right, it is better that I turn them around - or Quarrel's foot may end up smokin' :-) )

Draikar, hi,
I don't have the Staff Cars yet... They are on their way (My friend who went to the convention brought back the figures, but send the vehicles via mail).
When they get here I will definitely take some pics!

This year's Con has been for me- fantastic.Superb sub sets of figures ( which I hope to order from the Club when they put them up for sale ( I looked on Ebay & couldn't believe the prices wanted for Para Drop Flint- $49-89 :shock: The Z & Q force ones up to $180 :roll: ) I refuse to pay over the top for these.Shame that the Red Shadow's Con Set will be the last O-ringed ones as I prefer those than 25th.
Loved the new Pursuit of Cobra stuff out for this year & next also want the 2 Toys R Us exclusives out this year (Quick Kick & Spirit).looking forward to seeing new characters being made in the future.
Must say thanks to everyone who supplied photo's & Info for the Con- very much appreciated to a colllector like myself. Can't wait to attend this year's Uk Con if it's still going ahead Baron?

It ain't good when the V2's are more expensive than their already expensive V1 counterparts, TUG.

I doubt I'll ever get Moondancer or Dolphin, in any version (bar V1 Dolphin of course). I think its cool that Dolphin is a V3 now. A first in AF circles. I hope 25th Blades and the new lads will be added to the archives soon ;-)

Although the con has finished the figures are still not up in the Club Store as Pre-order or new items yet. Only Adventure Team and Action Man scales ones are.

Everyone is still getting back to TX, from the Con, you may have to call them, as they are sometimes slow getting updats on their website. (from what I hear they still have a good amount left).

I myself am trying to get info on the comic that was in the set.

what info are you looking for on the comic? theres a bunch left and you will be able to order them just like all the other comics

I heard that there was a good amount of everything too, except the shadow staff car, that is the only item that sold out.............sadly

from antarticas report on the con, the general public was clueless on the AF stuff so wasnt very interested and so didnt buy? I hope hes wrong but thats what he said
