Re: Britains Space

Yes, remember getting hit hard when I bought the Dengeki Gashin Dai X from Japan in 2001; think the duty was almost as much as the item and it wasn't cheap! French and Itallian sellers were a godsend back then.

Re: Britains Space

Yes. I'm 42 and remember regularly seeing these in toy shops in the early to mid 80s. Only ever had a couple of plastic figures though which I remember getting for free thanks to a crisp packet offer (Could have been Space Raiders). Seem to recall quite a few mail order offers at the time. Sent off ...

Re: Thunderbirds 2086 (Technovoyager) scratch-built model

Ah, nice one Andy! Looks really good and fairly in-depth for an 80s annual. Not sure I even remember all those different TBs. Maybe we didn't get all the episodes or I missed some.

Well this chap went one better: http://www.deviantart.com/art/Los-Thunderbirds2086-Son-Transformers-de-Cartulina-493116472 Cardboard transformers! The mind boggles. Might have to try and grab a cheap TB 2086 annual on ebay. Does it have images for every TB? Yeah, 3D printing has come down in price, ...

Re: Thunderbirds 2086 (Technovoyager) scratch-built model

Terrahawks-wise, there were a fair amount of toys released in 1983 for a year or two. The figures and smaller ships released were a bit rubbish, wind up Battlehawk anyone? I like the 4 large vehicles (what you'd call DX versions) made out of plastic and diecast metal with minimalistic silver and ora...

Thunderbirds 2086 (Technovoyager) scratch-built model

Hi all, lately I've returned to collecting vintage space toys and now have a few choice Terrahawks, Ulysses 31, Battle of the Planets (Gatchaman) and Mospeada pieces on my lil shelf (Oh and a Takatoku ST Big Dai X). These were some of my favourite shows from my youth with great toys to match (Thank ...

Re: 2016 - Star Fleet Vinyl

Well, I don't collect anymore, but I think I'll pick these up when they are released. Very nice.

Re: Stuff on Rinkya

The first link to the magazine which features X-Bomber is a real behind the scenes goldmine. Gareth, an old member of the forum bought the magazine back in the day and scanned it for my site; basically all the black and white shots of the crew manipulating the puppets and model ships etc.

Re: Thunderbirds Are Go - Low Cost!

Hey Crash, yeah go for it regarding the character, Emma Steel. Will be very interested to see what you have planned. I think this is it. The original Thunderbirds put a lot of time and effort in the set up of the various emergency situations. The Show could breath a lot more. It's the same with Old ...

Re: Thunderbirds Are Go - Low Cost!

I don't mind the new Thunderbirds show. I'm not too keen on the CGI characters and some of the vehicles are just lacking a little in weight, but it's very slick and flashy in places and zips along at a fair pace, which for better or worse is probably perfectly designed for it's key demographic today...
