A Venezuelan version of the G-Force Against the Monsters of Spectra card album. It differed from the original Spanish version in the way the pages were presented. This led to the album having an extra page at the end. Instead of offering a new page with original cards, the album simply reprinted the previous one with the spaces for cards 157 - 178 repeated. Also, the individual Venezuelan cards had their numbers printed on their fronts, while the Spanish ones were clean on the front with their numbers printed on the card backs. 1980, by Agencia Reyauca.
