Miro-Meccano held the French license for Action Force toys. Below are three more French ads, the first a ‘breakfast scene’ in which an imaginative schoolchild thinks Action Force figures are ‘attacking’ breakfast – the miniature troops even going so far as to believe that the cup of hot chocolate is a flying saucer! Check out that barricade of sugar cubes!

The two adverts following this are both promotional offers for Milky Way chocolate.
