Vintage Goodness: Eagle Force's GOLDIE HAWK!

The Blonde Bombadier of this 1981 1/24th Scale Die-Cast Series from Mego

I have a great love for the 1/24 scale toys of the 80's.  M.A.S.K. and Dino-Riders always led the pack with the most prolific series' and by far the most females (see my previous posts on the Women of M.A.S.K. and the Women of Dino-Riders), but every once in a while I will stumble across a long forgotten (to me at least) figure series and discover a gem. Mego's Eagle Force consisted of 18 figures standing about 2.25" tall.  They are all military themed and feature metallic gold uniforms.  Goldie Hawk is the only female of the group and she's actually pretty easy to get your hands on.  The Eagle Force toys were some of the very last figures produced by the trailblazing company, Mego, before they shut their doors in 1982.  The toy line was extremely popular and was reproduced by Ideal in the early 80's under the name "Strike Force."  I would wager that the success of these small-scale specialized military figures helped inspire the scaled-down 3&3/4" GI Joe series a few years later.  Let's check out this gilded beauty!

This in-package shot was swiped from an eBay auction

She comes with an amazingly-detailed M-16 rifle, she's only 2.25" tall  and this weapon is scaled for her..it's incredible.

Time for a Comparison Shot!

Series' from Left to Right: Dino-Riders, Battle Force 5, GI Joe, Eagle Force, & M.A.S.K.



  1. Although a poor variant, Goldie can exist with lipstick or without.

    1. Ooo good to know! Do you know which is more common?

  2. Actually, that I am unsure. I see both on eBay a lot!
