Thunderbirds Tracy Island

I’m a big fan of Gerry Anderson, but I didn’t discover most of his work until I was an adult. But even without knowing the connection between the Thunderbirds Tracy Island player and the show, I still would have loved this toy as a kid. Oddly enough, I did have a bunch of Zylmex Thunderbirds knock off toys, which were pretty awesome.

Mego Farrah

Any child of the 70’s knows the name Farah Faucet. Boys dreamed about her. Girls dreamed about being her. So how better to do service to the magnificent Farrah than by making an action figure? When I see toys like this I feel better about Mego tanking.

Outer Limits Board Game

I love the artwork on the cover of this game. It completely captures the look of the old show, especially the green dude.

Fireball XL5 Lunch Box

Not my favorite Gerry Anderson series, but a great lunch box!

Lost in Space Lunch Box

I never really liked this show that much, but I liked the concept a lot. For me, it was the kid. I found him annoying as hell. But I did like the robot!

Battlestar Galactica Lunch Box

Battlestar Galactica entranced me from the very first episode. I loved the Vipers, the Cylons and their ships. I especially loved the capital ships like the Galactica and the Base Stars. Is it me, or is there something wrong with the friendly waving Cylon? Did you know the Daggit had a monkey inside it?
