Mission "Stars 'n Stripes"
Pictured is a 1985 Mission "Stars 'n Stripes" promotional advertisement that was mailed out by Hasbro Direct to their mailing list - presumably to addresses of people who'd ordered from them before.
The ad advertises vehicles and figure no longer sold in stores, along with a few mail-in exclusives.

Joe commando t-shirt, the Cobra H.I.S.S., the Battle Bear Skimobile, the Missile Launcher PAC/RAT, the Flame Thrower PAC/RAT, the Machine Gun PAC/RAT, the JUMP Jet Pack, the HAL, the FLAK, the Wolverine, the Whirlwind Twin Battle Gun, the MMS, Major Bludd, Cobra Officer, Stalker, Zap, Doc, Airborne, Grunt, Short Fuze, Flash, Rock 'N Roll, and the Collector's Display Case.
Customers who purchased twelve dollars' worth of merchandise or more would also recieve a free MANTA.
