JR21 SUBMARINE AIRCRAFT CARRIER ON EBAY!

Well, now I'm speechless. What a day! Diversity have easilly won Britain's Got Talent with an amazing transformers dance routine and, wonder of wonders, the above glorious eye candy has appeared on Ebay UK! We've seen this fabulous JR21 toy before on the blog, only once though and that was AMAZING, but we've NEVER SEEN THE AWESOME BOX! Unbelievable! The box has a sort of SWORDY look to it but oddly there's no mention of Stingray on it. I can't read the text on the box but I've asked the seller, Star Trader of Blackpool, for a couple more pictures. The toy isn't totally complete ( on the scale of things not a problem!) but if you look at the previous posting of this toy you'll see most if not all the missing parts. The description is very comprehensive and even mentions the orginal forum ( Space 1999 Eagle Transporter Forum) discussion, in which various lucky blog readers were 'there' when Forum Member Mack29 found his JR21 Carrier in his garage!

Amazing to think that last October I posted a bloglet titled 'JR21 Submarine Carrier - Does it Exist?'. Even earlier, WOTAN posted an early illustration of the Carrier (originally designed by Ron Embleton in TV21 issue #1 also spotted by WOTAN) in the Blog's first week last September so it was definately on our minds from the start! He'd even seen one in a shop window as a kid in the 60's! In the last 7 months there have been 2 toys and one box 'surfacing'! I love this hobby!
