Eagle Force

The Eagle Force toy line was created and produced by Mego from 1980 to 1982.  They were basically tiny (less than 3 inch) metal action figures that had very little articulation, basic accessories and average paint jobs.  However, for some reason I really liked these guys, up until Hasbro knocked out their 3 3/4" Gi Joe action figures, which killed Eagle Force completely.  If you compare a few of these figures to the first few series of GI Joe figures, you can see some serious grounds for lawsuits (see Did You Know? below).   

  In addition to the figures, several vehicles, playsets and toys were produced including an awesome mountain playset that I loved as a kid.

 Outside of the figure line, there were comic books, cap guns and other Eagle Force items available in the USA. In other countries, the Eagle Force line included a numerous variations card graphics, figure names and accessories.  Mego licensed GiGi to market these toys in Italy and parts of Europe (sold in boxes as opposed to blister cards) and Grand Toys for distribution in Canada..

Talk about rip offs!  If Mego had a spine they would have sued Hasbro.  Unfortunately, they were so broke and disappointed from the collapse of their company they pretty much lost interest in any toy activities.
