In 1992 figures were released on one main style of cardbacks: 12-Backs. Although the backs of these cards also show three pictures of the different Special Forces available in 1992 they are still commonly referred to as 12-Backs since the Special Forces pictures are not individually named.
One promotion ran in 1992, and it was perhaps the rarest of the action figure promotions. The promotion for this year was for the Impel Hall Of Fame Trading Cards, also known as "Gold-Border" cards. There were a total of 20 cards in the set. These cards have been confirmed to have been released with the 12-Backs, the Ninja Force, and even the re-released Super Sonic Fighters from 1991 (Series Ten). The Hall Of Fame cards were probably included with all the figures that were released in 1992 but these are the only ones that can be confirmed so far. For purposes of brevity all cardbacks with the Hall Of Fame cards promotion will be listed in one category below. If anyone has cardbacks of other sub-groups with this promotion please contact [email protected] and let us know.
Sub-Groups and miscellaneous figures available in 1992 include Air Commandos, D.E.F., Eco-Warriors, Ninja Force, and Talking Battle Commanders.
Both Series Ten (1991) and Series Eleven (1992) figures were available this year.
