OK, this is the first of two stunning Project SWORD discoveries made this weekend just gone. Focus on the red car in the centre and look at the box. It says:
Project SWORD Spectrum Patrol Car by Tarheel!
Now that is amazing! Not only is it a wholly new and never seen before American SWORD toy by Tarheel, it is also the first SWORD toy, which specifically mixes Gerry Anderson worlds, ie. SWORD and Captain Scarlet! Fabulous I hear you say! And I would agree.
We will hopefully get more photographs from the toy's owner later in the year. In the meantime you can go and see it on display for another month at the Hamilton Toy Collection in Callander, Perthsire, Scotland, where it resides with owner John Hunter. John has kindly agreed to me showing this photograph of the toy. You can see more of his museum on his website.
I would like to thank Graeme Walker of Canada for initially flagging up this toy, which he saw on Facebook. Thanks Graeme! That's the power of the web!
If you can take anymore then the next new SWORD discovery will follow soon!
