    Nice work man. Personally the whole Cobra transition was the end of my interest in the stories to a large extent (the characters coming in weren't a patch on the original ones IMO), but they're still good stories.

    I used to love that comic. I also preferred the RED SHADOW era to when COBRA took over. I actually stopped buying for a couple of months when it happened, but started up again after seeing the cool figures of the new guys.
    Brings back good memories to see these again.

    well I got to admit I am a new fan , and I only became a fan a couple of years back when DDP started to bring the RED SHADOWS into thier comic. But now with reading 95 percent of all these stories Id say my favorites are the stories that involve the Red shadows or action force guys interacting with the GI JOES we know and love. but in the end I love them all

    glad its bringing back good memories for everyone and thanks for letting us know, sometimes we need that fuel to keep us going LOL

    thanks for checking it out and letting us know

    Nice catch! Do the "glow in the dark" stickers still hold light after all these years?
    That's my favourite vehicle from the line, including all the official U.S. GI JOE stuff: It's just so original & striking (pity the RED WOLF pilot was a little weak!)

    My ROBOSKULL isn't boxed but it is in good nick, (and is also sporting a few homemade COBRA stickers!). It may have been more simplistic, but I preferred that red, white & blue "Action Force" packaging to the US versions too.

    Damn right they do :) 
    I kinda liked Red Wolf; he was an interesting change from the rest of the figures. Plus, he had a jetpack.
    The Roboskull is my all time favourite toy ever. The one I had as a kid totally vanished. I used to have a near complete AF set, but I have NO idea where almost all of it is now. I have a few pieces left; Shadowtrak, Laser Exterminator, Triad Fighter, and a couple of others.
    I also have (thanks to eBay) 6 MOSC figures, a MIB SAS Panther, a MIB SAS MMS, an MIB unbuilt Z Force Whirlwind, and a MIB Sealion (my 2nd favourite toy of all time; I do have my original still, but it's a bit banged up). My aim is to recollect all the stuff I used to have, then finish the entire UK line.
    (only up as far as the Red Shadows era stuff, however)

    WOW - Beautiful Roboskull there Draven! Would you mind if I use the sticker sheet at AFOnline? I'm really glad people are enjoying these comics all over again, colouring them in is such a blast, you're going to love the stuff we have in store.

    Part 2 of School For Snakes is uploading as I type!

    Of course you can :)  If you need any other pics let me know.
    I did send you an email a couple of weeks ago asking if you wanted any pics; I have a MIB Sealion, Panther & Mobile Missile System too, and an unbuilt Z Force Whirlwind, if you want any pic of them. And thank you for sorting out my validation at the AF boards; jamarmiller, thank you for passing my message along :)

    Any and all pics would be greatly appreciated, mate. We're particularly keen to complete the sticker sheets archive for the benefit of customisers. No problem on the validation but I'm afraid I didn't get your e-mail though.
