  2. uh oh... You forgot about SET # 3.

    Don't sweat it, I blogged about these a few years back.

    Here's the linkee.

  3. Hey ~P~, thanks for the link. I've got Set #3 coming up next!

  4. My pleasure, Jason.
    Any time!

    Hey, I just noticed that there seems to be TWO different PACKAGING runs for these.

    Check out the back of the two different pics of set # 2. One shows the figures painted and the other non-painted.

    I wonder which came first?
    A) The Painted back pic, which would mean they may have got in trouble for falsely advertising them as being in color (although, most miniatures at the time shows "suggested" paint schemes on the back.


    B) The b/w one came first until they increased the budget for a color print.


    C) The color photo was a US release and the other b/w was for the UK.

    Mine, which were all purchased during their initial retail sales dates, were with the color photo.
