Commando 5324 - Gold Collection: Lone Eagle

When Rommel and his forces took Tobruk in 1942, most RAF pilots flew right out of there and to the safety of other airstrips – but not Ginger Stubbs! That fiery cockney flyer would never run away from a fight!

Ginger and a group of veteran desert ANZAC troops were going to give the Germans hell – whether he was ordered to or not!

Commando 5325 - Action and Adventure: Dingo’s Mates

Dingo Smith was the picture of an ANZAC soldier. Brave, strong, rugged, and a real fighter. But something changed in Dingo when he was amongst the carnage on the beaches of Gallipoli in World War One, and the once courageous man froze as he stared down the barrel of a Turkish rifle.

His mate, Blue, could only watch as the bravest man he knew turned into a rabbit in the headlights!

How could he ever redeem himself in the eyes of his mates?

Commando 5326 - Silver Collection: Tiger in the Sun

In the sweaty jungles of World War Two Burma, something stalked the men fighting there. A fearsome tiger sought vengeance on the Japanese invaders.

But the tiger wasn’t the only thing to contend with – as the war raged on, an RAF man and an RAAF man were forced to work together to take out the Japanese ace pilot with the Tiger painted on his fuselage, before the tiger in the jungle could strike again!
