    The Redbox spy/secret agent sets were produced in the 1990s. I bought one at Toys-R-Us during that decade. Redbox was founded in Hong Kong in 1985.

      I beg to differ my friend; I was bought mine back in the mid ’70s. Everything from the box art, to the colour plastic used for the bullets (some sets differ in that respect), was identical to the set shown above,

      I remember this toy so well as I actually swallowed one of those flamin’ bullets!!

    An afterthought; it’s quite possible that the mouldings e.t.c were previously owned by another manufacturer who then sold them on to ‘Redbox. Or maybe ‘Redbox’ had traded under a different name in the ’60s/’70s?.
