1983 Major Bludd: Mercenary (mail order and carded)
Major Bludd was available as a mail-in offer from January 25–February 28, 1983 (see the postcard offer above). This mail-in figure was the first swivel-arm figure. Later in 1983, Major Bludd would be released as a carded figure as part of series 2 (seen below).
