    Info on Dinky's UFO line

    Just curious as to the line of toys produced by Dinky based on the late 60s/early 70s TV show UFO.
    I was quite young and vaguely remember the show. I do remember some of the vehicles in it though.
    I also seem to recall print ads advertising Dinky toys version's of them.
    Curious as to what they produced and were they any good?

    they made three vehicles, the interceptor, the Shado 2 vehicle Stranger's car. I'll happily post pictures.

    Product Enterprises made the Shado 2, skydivers, the interceptor and the UFO itself. I love those.

    I'd like to see these.

    A ReMego dream would be a small Space:1999-style 1-wave UFO line, but the vehicles are very cool.
    WANTED: NM or boxed Fonzie jalopy; POTA Fortress signal-flasher--top portion; vintage Galahad box; minty Wolfman tights; Black Knight sword; minty POTA stallion reins (brown); Lion Rock (pale) Dracula & Mummy heads; Wayne Foundation blue furniture; Flash Gordon/Ming (10") unbroken holsters; CHiPs gloved arms; POTA T2 tan body; POTA knife-swords; CTVT/vintage Friar Tuck robes.

    Here are mine, I actually try and find these in the wild. Canada has a real diecast collecting culture (carried over from the UK I guess) so I see these in my travels a lot. I don't own an interceptor yet. Just missed one a little while back.

    I had the Shado 2 and the interceptor as a kid too.



    And here is my Product Enterprise UFO and interceptor

    I'm just gonna assume you mean Straker's car,and not Stranger's,lol! I always wanted the SHADO Mobile but never got one. And the Interceptor....did it actually come in white at some point? In the UK it was green,for some weird reason. I just can't seem to remember it coming in white till Product Enterprise did some gorgeous Space 1999 and UFO toys.

    Oh my phone autocorrected "Straker" how helpful....

    That Interceptor I have is by Product Enterprises, the Dinky line was always green if i recall...

    I have the Product Enterprises UFO and Interceptor, too.
    I am more than machine. More than man. More than a fusion of the two.
