View Full Version : 1960s Thunderbird Toys
May 11, '07, 8:17 AM
I've just started collecting JR21 Rosenthal Thunderbird toys based on the Gerry Anderson show. These space craft (T1-5) along with Megos have strong nostalgic ties with me and the boxes had Fab (pardon the pun) illustrations on them. Also, I've always wanted to collect the Dolls made by Fairylite but they are going for Mego like prices. Oh well . Does anyone else collect Gerry Anderson stuff?
Will post some pics soon because they are way cool.

I have some StingRay figures, (Commander Shore, Troy Tempest and Marina), as well as lots of eps on tape, and both original Thunderbird movies.

I used to collect Gerry Anderson Supermarination stuff with a passion.
Being here in the US, it was no easy task :)
About 5-ish years ago I sold a lot of my lesser stuff including many newer IMAI models.
The highlight of my collection-- which I still own, is my Rosenthal 21 FAB-1 in box.
It's not perfect, but pretty nice.
I also have a lot of the Bandai ships from the late 80's-early '90s.
They're called "models" but they're completely assembled and made out of a combo of plastic and metal.
They're most not in scale with on another, and average about 4-8 inches in lenghth.
I think my oldest Anderson things are......
Supercar To The Rescue board game
Supercar Golden Book
Fireball XL5 Golden Book
I do have some figures, but nothing really vintage
Mostly Matchbox, Bandai and whomever made the Scarlet doll from the mid 90's....... and some Space Precinct :)
I have one Pelham puppet in the original version box.
I think my fav item is my boxed set of five Thunderbirds Bandai action figures.
They're about 5 inches high and are pretty neat.
My worst figures are......
I think these were made by Bandai, are my 8-ish inch Thunderbirds figures with real clothes.
The darn things boots keep falling off IN BOX and they have no feet.
The boots are glued directly to the knees.
