Really? I've never seen this Eddie before. And LOTF single has a totally different artwork from the one in question.
I can't remember where I seen that before. I just had a quick flick through "Run for Cover" and it doesn't seem to be in it, maybe it was shown in an FC magazine? I would have been in the FC in the 90's so it's a possibility.
