Just when you think you've seen it all. When you feel confident that every incarnation of SWORD toys has been seen and recorded and you can sit back and blog about how your collection is nearly complete, something new appears. This time, you need to look hard, really hard to actually see the newest arrivals to the SWORD fleet as they are so diminuitive!
Unsurprisingly, these tiny beauties have arrived from the far east and once more, our Man in Japan - Terry has selflessly tracked down and bequeathed these tiny wonders to the Wotan Archive.
At this point, we must pause - because theres little more to know beyond the obvious - both are soft plastic of the variety used in cereal premiums. Theres no visible markings on each, apart from a english '14' and what appears to be an '11' on the underside of TF3 and TF2 respectively.
Its hard to make out much detail on the cream coloured TF2, but the TF3 has rivets and a 'hatch' like emblem on the nose. Apart from these cosmetic differences and a tiny variation in the wing layout compared to its big brother on the TF2, its plain to see these are based on the original Sword Task Force. Once more, we're left with more questions than answers, primarily - wheres T1 ?
