Commanders Club

There was a listinjg for a Project SWORD club badge this week so, as no doubt some of you fellow Swordies did too, I had to have a look. It turned out to be a standard issue badge that came with every toy. It did get me thinking though, what cook stuff might you have got in the membership starter pack if a SWORD/ SPACEX [SWORDEX!] club had existed?
I know there was a Golden Astronaut club over in the States back in the late 60's. Was anyone a member? What did you get? Wonder if there was an exclusive toy?

  1. Don't know about Golden Astronaut but I used to love getting any mail-aways in the post as a kid. I'm sure I sent off for Bazooka Joe stuff like the whistle ring.

    As for a SWORD starter pack, I reckon an exclusive badge would be a must. Higher than Supremo [?].

  2. Higher than Supremo? Overlord or Emporer perhaps?

    An exclusive toy, SWORD or Spacex, should be avaialable to new members of a SWORDEX club. Maybe a part of the Moon Base Set from either range!
