Next up out of the Japanese crates are these simply beautiful vintage bubble carded plastic Thunderbirds toys from Bandai. The TB1 above is remote controlled with steerable motion and comes complete with a Tracy brother. They look almost modern to me!
From the same range this TB5 came with a yellow TB1, which could be pulled out on a string by the looks of it and when released would shoot back into its docking bay on the space station!
and here's another carded Bandai TB2 with an opaque yellow pod.
And now for something special folks, the larger Bandai toys based on the Captain Scarlet TV series! All on bubble cards, theses stunning plastic toys all came with batteries and complete individual instructions on the rear of each backing card. Only the Angel Interceptor and SPC are missing from this group. Enjoy!
This would not look out of place in a Project SWORD toy fleet!
All toys on generous loan from SWORDgrasshopper and photographed by me at Moonbase.
