Whoa! Fantastic shots all around. Love the one with the crab especially. Reminds me of some kinda sci-fi B movie from the era.

Fantastic work!

Who didn't covet these little guys you saw advertised on the back of comics?
And only $1.50?
Although when you read the size of that footlocker you realise the figures must have been REALLY tiny if 100 of them fitted into it.
Like all of these "offers", our childhood expectations were always shattered by the reality of what arrived.
I had the larger ones, (invariably army green) and have noticed that they are still available in some toy shops!
Even VAM/MAM didn't achieve that kind of longevity.

Yes, and I was one of them who talked their mother into buying this set and boy was I ever disappointed. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Tiny brittle
flat plastic figures and the riflemen were as big as the tanks... lol! lol! and the box was crushed...

"Deluxe Vietnamese Village: You'll have to destroy it in order to save it." - Sounds kind of like the entire world right now. Neutral

Hilarious parody! I've not seen this before!

Brian, that Simpsons parody is SO spot-on!
The full extent and irony of the black-humour would only be understood by those who lived through those times!

The ad is from an issue of Bongo comic's 'Radioactive man'

oh no! 1960's all over again...lol Radioactiveman88

They are a spot-on parody of the superhero comics of the 60's and 70's. Matt Groening must have grown up reading them just like a lot of us did.
