The power to move and my GIANT FIST!

Action set is all you need to play with power!

By 1989 my comic collecting was winding down a bit, in no small part due to the arrival of Nintendo. But i never bought a game from the Sears catalog or their hotline, which is good because who knows if the game you ordered would be the game you received. Take a look at the first three screenshots here. The first and third images are swapped (it's a picture of Simon's Quest at the top and Zelda II in spot #3), and the second image is showing a scene from Super Mario Brothers I (which came with the system!) instead of II. I also would not want to have wound up with Wizzard and Warriors, obviously a cheap knock-off of the superior Wizards and Warriors game.

I do enjoy the duck-faced Koopas and somewhat off model Bowser. I feel like i've seen that style of Koopa somewhere else, but i'm not sure where. But they are particularly nightmarish and i think they should be brought back.
