You'll remember I found a tiny Apollo Saturn rocket last month. Well, this week I had another boost to my theory that there's an entire SWORD fleet in miniature lurking in Japan. Here we can see, nestled top left amongst various cute 'Glico' toys, are a pair of what are, quite clearly, miniaturised SWORD Space Gliders! Oh Yes!
Zooming in a bit we can see all the features: blister cockpit and the unique raised 'switch' at the rear. Looking at another picture of the undercarraige we can see the simple 'wheels' and the mould circles typical of all the miniature SWORD toys found so far by Wotan, Terry and me. I can't see a number on the undercarraige but not all of them are numbered.
There's clearly more of these out there. The chase is on!
