Pitchman-A-Go-Go #3

ASTROFORCE!!!! Space Soldiers of the Future! Space Soldiers that are so damn tough, they don't need a spacecraft to repel the hideous Martian Horde.

OK, the ad doesn't say that, but that's what I thought when I saw it. The Martians don't have a spaceship, they just came zooming at us on their jetpacks.

With your order, you got
  • 80 figures (in four colors)
  • 16 Radi-activator guns
  • 16 Disintigrator ray pistols
  • 16 astro helmets
  • 16 Oxi-radar flight packs with cosmic propulsion belts
  • 16 Galactic receivers and senders
  • 4 Interplanetary communicators
I'm trying to decide if the best part is the fella that is 'actual size' or the fact that West Virginia, Mobile Alabama, the panhandles of Oklahoma & Texas, and Brownsville Texas are getting nuked. That'll cripple the U.S for sure!!


All this for $1.98 (or 2 sets for $3.49 "MOM I save 47 cents if I order 2") way back in 1970.

You have your choice of either a weapon or a gun or a radio.
