    A younger cousin had one though. I think that's when the hate started. ;)

    Have you seen Moon? Baby Bowie was obviously a fan.

    Someone post a pic of an Angel Interceptor - the coolest airplane of all time.

    All the Captain Scarlett craft were brilliant.

    And the UFO was extremely cool.

    The octopus alien ... wind, noise, light. It’s pretty weird.

    But how could he have not noticed that it’s hangry, too?

    Is that the one with the long trek through space with the monster just the other side of the door? If so, freaked me out at the time too.

    Also, though, a very effective use of the Albinoni Adagio in G minor as incidental music, IIRC.

    I only remember Fireball XL5 in black & white. And where is Thunderbird 3? My favourite, and the only one that I had in diecast metal. It probably explains why I like the colour orange so much.

    I still have 2 Dinky ones in the basement in pretty good nick. I loved those as a kid. Many of the older episodes are on YouTube. I also have dinky SPV (like the picture up thread), Lady Penelope's car, and a UFO interceptor. Perhaps I'll dig them out one day and post a photo.

    Steve,

    It was like some sort of Horta, except it had a glowing eye, tentacles and wasn't based on silicon chemistry.

    And it made wind, noise, light. It’s pretty weird, but you're safe as long as you lock the door.
