Okay, I'm probably dating myself by posting this... :lol

Does anyone remember the Sci-Fi TV show with these?? It involved SHADO (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organization) These diecasts are by Dinky.

Sure do!

I use to watch this in Thai way back then. :cheers

My other favorite sci-fi show is Gerry Anderson's "Thunderbirds".

Remember that one? Puppets & spaceships. You gotta love'em! :happy

That's exactly what my wifey says!! :lol :lol :lol

I've heard of Capt Scarlet but not Joe 90.
You should take a look at this link to Gerry Andersen stuff. I think you'll get a kick out of the stuff there.

Here's a diecast that ought to bring back some memories:

Now you lost me. :confused
That's what most of my friends say when I started talking robots... :lol

I'm not surprise if you haven't seen it. It's one of those obscured but way cool shows. Silly plots, funny looking marrionettes, and cool vehicles. Once in a while Scifi Channel would air these series.

Thanks for the link, SM. :cheers

Those vehicles are way cool aren't they? :cheers

Everytime I sat and watch the show after school (in Thailand), I always wish that I have toys like that to play with. Of course, back then all I got were wood blocks. And bamboo sticks... :lol

I was a lot lilke you. Didn't have a lot of toys, just Lego with which I tried to build anything I could imagine. (My favourite was my Handley-Page Victor bomber) One of my elementary school friends had that very model in the picture and we used to play with it in the school sand pit pretending to blow things up. :happy :happy
