A few weeks back I loaned a ton of toys from ubercollector SWORDGrasshopper. They arrived at Moonbase in these crates and boxes one Saturday lunchtime in Autumn.
After transporting the boxes into the Moonbase attic - the Loft in Space - I have begun to unpack them! And what glorious treasures! It's like Christmas Day 1969 on a constant loop!
So, for your viewing pleasure readers - and to the sound of Roman Candles zooming across the dark sky [its Bonfire Night here in the UK] - I present the contents of the first boxes I opened: the fabulous vintage range of clockwork Captain Scarlet toy vehicles by Bandai.
Each one came carded on a bubble card beautiful artwork - punched for a small textile string for hanging on shops' racks - along with a coloured card back depicting the range of toys, the Spectrum pendent - signature element of the range - and instructions for use, whereby the pendant was used as a key to wind up the clockwork mechanism.
So, here's the toy range - one by one:
Hope you enjoyed that lot! Here's a snifter of what's to come soon - bottom right - so tune in again for the great unboxing!
