Here's a British TV advert for the Baron Ironblood-era ACTION FORCE toys from Palitoy.  Perennial also-rans Q-Force (water) and Space Force (err... space and stuff) don't even merit a mention.

The spot would have ran during the Children's ITV afternoon programming block and, possibly, during TV-am and Saturday morning kid-vid too.

It's pretty unsophisticated stuff compared with the adverts Hasbro produced when they took over the toy line and made it G.I. JOE in all but name.  Their adverts used animated sequences created, by Marvel Productions, for similar American adverts and the Joe TV show.
