I sometimes wish I'd got my second wind for Gerry Anderson in my Twenties and not my Thirties. I might have made it to Space City in Blackpool, UK between in the late 1970's. I've no idea if there were any SWORD toys there but it must have been so cool back then when the Anderson studio was still filming. Darn it!

I could have gone to the first Fanderson convention in Leeds in 1981, which Scoop managed to get to. Shucks!
I could have subscribed to SIG, Action 21 and Century 21 magazines at the time they were published. Boo hoo!
And I really should have gone to the 1994 Gerry Anderson Exhibition in Blackpool, where there was loads of SWORD toys like the Zero-X shown here at the event. This is a still from a 10 minute video film of the event on You Tube.
Did anyone reading the blog get into Gerry Anderson or Sci Fi/ space toys and models in the 1970's? Where did you go? What did you subscribe too? What do you remember? I'd love to hear from you?
