Continuing our discussion about SWORD's Phase 2, it pretty clear to us that it refers to the transition from the SOLO to TV21 strips. GACCH backs this up too. The question remains, however, as to which toys where Phase 2. It's easy for SpaceX, it says on the backing cards whether they're I or II.
For SWORD, only the Nuclear Ferry is clearly marked Phase 2 [thanks Wote] so why is there an Apollo Saturn Rocket pictured on the Phase 2 advert as we saw on the blog last week? To confuse matters even more, why does the Nuclear Ferry appear on a SWORD toys advert in TV21, shown below [TV21 #145, 28/10/1967], before the Phase 2 toys advert posted last week dated 27/01/1968? Similarly intriguing is the reference to Zero X being a Phase 2 toy on GACCH [start of paragraph 2]. Perhaps we need a time line of SWORD adverts to help shed some light on things?
