Jack, yes on the Eagle Force, though they were 2.5 inches, more in line with Dino Riders, etc.

Wow, you have a whole bin full of them!

Ah, okay, that's good to know.

What about Manta Force? I just read about them recently.

Sorry for the late reply guys, here's a couple of quick crap-quality pics of the Shadow Strikers collection, will take better detailed pics later this week.  Balok, will definitely take a few detailed pics of the tank & helicopter for you.  It is indeed a nicely engineered line, & was a neat feature seeing the mechanics in action.  Nice rainbow assortment of colors on the figures.  I think that's the entire lineup.

 

HOLY COW!  I was just thinking about this line the other day, trying to figure out what it was.  I remember seeing them in a catalog insert but never in stores.  NICE!

Wow replicant01 that is one magnificent collection (I would speculate the largest also) of Shadow Strikers!

Thanks guys! This is the result of focusing on a handful of toylines for the last 15+ years :) I completed the Shadow Strikers line a few years back but still browse for deals every now & then. Picked up a few of the more common sets on clearance @ TRU back in the mid 90s & had planned to track down the rest of the line since then.

Jack, regarding Manta Force, if I recall they are about 1" tall figures, more in line with Legions of Power & the Stomper guys.

A unique thing about Manta Force, was the very detailed casualties/deceased figures in green PVC. There were at least 5 variations of these for very cool battlefield scenes

Yeah those are pretty gnarled. I've been keeping my eye out for the evil bog vehicles mostly for those little buggers.

See link above for pics of the Shadow Strikers line (complete I think).  While some of the vehicles look incomplete I have a bag full of accessories I didn't feel like assembling.  Some of the figures & vehicles have color variants, though some of the figures have obvious fading.  It looks like the rare vehicles are the Dune Buggy, Tank & Helicopter.  The figures for these 3 vehicles have an unappealing gloss to them.  The figures have nowhere near the detail as the Air Raiders figures, but they do have some minor improvements in movement (head swivels & legs can move individually.  Also like that the foot has a peg hole instead of the AR slot (actually surprised the AR figures didn't have this instead with their oversized footwear).

Here's some more tiny articulation in the Air Raiders range of scale, courtesy of GLYOS articulation; these are Alpha-7 figures from Outer Space Men (with the enormous Martian head replaced smaller GLYOS parts to create a space helmet)
