UK rereleases of Popy's Italian Gatchaman - Battle of the Planets toys. None of the toys had any connection with the English-language version of Battle of the Planets. They were originally issued for the Japanese Gatchaman II and Gatchaman Fighter (bottom two toys) sequel series and carried over to Italy. The packaging on the toys was kept almost the same as the Italian versions except for the placement of English language stickers to cover some of the Italian logos and text. Approximately 1982 - 1983, by Popy.
