Matchbox 1992 ~ THUNDERBIRDS RESCUE PACK

Thunderbirds is a British mid-1960s science fiction television show devised by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and made by AP Films using a form of marionette puppetry dubbed “Supermarionation“. The series followed the adventures of International Rescue, a secretive organisation created to help those in grave danger using technically advanced equipment and machinery launched from its hidden Tracy Island base. The series focused on the head of the organisation, ex-astronaut Jeff Tracy, and his five sons who piloted the “Thunderbird” machines. Its London agent, Lady Penelope, also featured as a frequent guest-star. Perennially popular, the series has benefited from periodic re-runs since and is still shown today – as well as subsequently inspiring a number of other television programmes and advertisements, theatrical productions, feature films and substantial merchandise.

Hot Wheels 2011 #39 ~ A Team Van



At the end of their stint in Viet Nam, Col. John “Hannibal” Smith and his team were framed for robbing the Bank of Hanoi (which they had done, but under orders), and sent to a US military prison. They escaped and went on the run, pursued first by Col. Lynch and later by Col. Decker. While on the lam, they became heroes for hire, working as good-guy vigilantes around the US or the world. Hannibal was their leader and an expert at disguises. Face was the team’s con artist and lady’s man. BA (officially “Bad Attitude”) was their mechanic, but also took care of mayhem and intimidation. The final member of the Team, “Howling Mad” Murdock, was an expert pilot, and a certified lunatic–they broke him out of a mental hospital whenever they needed him for a mission. (from IMDb)
Owned & operated by master mechanic B.A. Barachus, this is the official model of transportation for the A Team. It is able to withstand accidents, gun battles, insane jumps, and being stripped apart on a regular basis- only to be put back together by B.A. for the next adventure.
Superb die-cast model; red wheels; Carded.

Vivid Imaginations Captain Scarlet ~ Colonel White with Spectrum Defence chart

Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, often referred to as Captain Scarlet, is a 1960s British science-fiction television series produced by the Century 21 Productions company of Gerryand Sylvia AndersonJohn Read and Reg Hill. First broadcast on ATV Midlands between September 1967[5] and May 1968,[6] it has since been transmitted in more than 40 other countries, including the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.[7] Combined withscale model special effects, characters are presented as marionette puppets in a filming technique that the Andersons dubbed “Supermarionation“, a technology that incorporated internal solenoid motors as a means of producing mouth movements synchronised with pre-recorded dialogue.
Set in 2068,[e 1] the series charts the hostilities between Earth and a race of Martians known as the Mysterons. After a misunderstanding results in human astronauts destroying their base, the vengeful Mysterons declare war on Earth,[e 1] initiating a succession of reprisal attacks that are countered by Spectrum, an international security organisation. Spectrum boasts the remarkable abilities of its top agent, Captain Scarlet, who comes to possess the Mysteron healing power of “retro-metabolism”. This ability to return to life, even after suffering fatal injuries, essentially makes Scarlet “indestructible”. (from Wikipedia)
