Great post and pics cheers Palitoy also packaged the Hoth Stormie rifle as used in the German YPS comic giveaway. I also recall Walkie posting a pic ages ago of Baron Ironblood packaged with a Rebel blaster.

Very Happy Cheers.

The "YPS rifle" was issued, in silver, during 1982 with one of the earliest AF figures..


The Palitoy designers were given the task to produce smaller versions of the most popular 12" Action-man uniforms Ground Assault   being one of those to be chosen.

Thinking about it.. for those truly hard core fans.. anyone with Gentle Giant's 12" version of Kenners Snowtrooper should make the effort to track down the original Action-man sized "YPS" rifle. Laughing
