Looking to see if anyone has any information about this or has seen one before?
Looks to be a repack of this one from the SWCA

Fecking Hells Bells.....

I had one of those as a kid and until that picture I had no memory of it ! Then it's all come rushing back :-)

Know nothing about them other than I had one as did my brother - thanks for posting and hope someone can help you with more info.

Great knowledge!
I have the Force Beam, but didn't even know this other one existed, let alone the box 8)

I'm printing your thread out and hiding it under my pillow :mrgreen:
Good chance it was Grattan mate or possibly Kays?

Given your slightly more, ahem, experienced than me would you think this was late 70's rather than mid 80's then?

Definitely late 70's bud - was one of the first SW toys I remember getting.

Love that - it is brilliant - don't think we were allowed to buy one as they were too 'dangerous'

The trousers make it look a bit dangerous.

Great piece and the first time I've seen one. Definitely one for the real old timers who are a whole two years older than me.

Yes, but don't worry; he's got a 'hidden-gusset' so they won't 'bind his legs'... you know, like ordinary jeans do just aaaall the time :lol:

I imagine those jeans sold out pretty quickly. I've lost count of the number of martial artists I've seen wearing CN Action Jeans. You can't move down my local dojo for hidden gussets :wink:
