If it's not to much trouble, that would be very interesting. The only examples I can find online are just showing the first page.

Chris, that's another great find for under $1. It's interesting that they would have unreleased toy sets on the cover, in 1992. Well after their prime era?

Was there any pictures & articles inside the magazine?

There are more photos inside, most are small and black & white though.

I get the impression that someone part of the SWCA (or adjacent to) probably supplied the photo or the items for photos, but inside it is described as “unreleased & rare”, somewhat understating the manner in my estimation.... although I don’t know how many of the actual play sets there are. scratch

And I suppose that predates the SWCA..... at least how we know it lol and it’s pretty comtemporary with all the “Cincinnati raiders” stories so it’s strange that they would have something like this in print. I’ll have some more time to look at it tmro, I just skimmed through.

a right odd little curio. late 70s early 80s bootleg jiggler found in american vending/gumball machines. they were clearly copying the kenner look. they can be found in assorted in colours i thinks its just the first 12 figures they copied. they are made of rubber[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Very cool, it’s like a Yupi only it’s a direct copy rather than being inspired by the Kenner figure.

I was in Quebec for 2 days again and I found another one of these French Canadian Treasury Edition comics. I already have this one but for $10 it’s was a good buy, someone local will want it.
