    Hands down, the most impressive collection of ARAH I've ever seen by a private collector and excellently presented. Bittersweet to think I had much of the 83-85 stuff in my room as a kid. My bedroom walls papered with blueprints and file cards in nice little recipe boxes. I even had that (practically useless), three-figure belt carrier.

    To answer the question about the Steel Brigade patch, it was given to Fan Club members who ordered their "personalized" Steel Brigade figure through the club. I believe that it is very rare as the patch wasn't normally given to non-fan club members.

    I hate to say it, but I passed up a Steel Brigade patch last year at gun show. It was pinned to the display board at one of the booths that sell old patches, ammo pouches and the such. I thought I had one in my figure case. Turns out, I didn't... I should have just offered a dollar or two and bought it. Next time I am in Leavenworth area maybe it will still be available...

    Anybody have any of this kind of stuff for sale? I'm interested in all foreign paperwork (Japan/UK/S. America/etc).

    Actually that is not quite accurate. You did not have to be a member of the fan club to order the figure. The offer to get Steel Brigade figures was on a lot of comic books as well as this insert included with orders from Hasbro Direct:

    No club membership required to order. HOWEVER, notice that patch is not the same one silverc was asking about. The one he was wondering about was included in the Steel Brigade Fan Club Kit and can be seen in the picture here:

    To get that kit you had to send in $7.50 to Hasbro and everything in that picture was included. If you view the large image here you can see a picture of the fan club kit with that Steel Brigade patch pictured:

    Hopefully this helps to clarify this for everyone!

    Thanks for the clarification. I knew it something on those lines. That was over 20 years ago and I got (and lost) mine during that time.

    Here are a few new additions...

    The Mobile Command Center. I found a guy selling this who lives only a few miles from my place so it was great not to have to pay shipping. Plus it's 100% complete and in great shape.



    It even had the box!



    I also got another vintage box, the Silver Mirage



    And something I have been searching for quite a while...the original cassette tape from the Listen N Fun Tripwire. Gotta love that analog goodness.
