Ok, going to try to name them:
Star trek (awesome btw)
Batman batplane (probably my favorite in this bunch and something I had never seen)
No idea on the white car
starsky and hutch (dang so many cool toys in this one post)
no idea again on but assume both cars are from the same series

in the next post the only thing I know is charlies angels have no idea what those big headed people are nor the vehicle(s?) I cant tell if the fish thing is supposed to be a vehicle or is an actual toy of a fish or something.

Hi,
A few of these are pretty obscure, especially if you didn't grow up in England during the 70's  Very Happy

The white car is from a show called The Return Of The Saint a 70's sequel/remake of the old 60's series that made a star of Roger Moore:


The bronze coloured car is the Buick Regal from Kojak:


The last set are from a 60's show called Stingray, these toys were produced when the series was rebroadcast during the mid 90's.


Created by a guy called Gerry Anderson, who's most famous for another puppet series called Thunderbirds...

Anderson was kind of the prototype George Lucas, in that, during the 1960's his work involved a lot of special effects model work, were massively popular with kids & made revenue from selling toys,comics & tons of other licensed products.

In fact Brian Johnson, one of the special effects geniuses behind Empire, worked as an apprentice (to the late, great, Derek Meddings) on early Anderson shows such as Stingray and Thunderbirds.  


If you look hard enough, everything's connected  Laughing

Tshot, some truly awesome and iconic toys there, especially the die cast stuff! Before I collected SW I had a good run of Corgi. I sold a lot of it to buy SW but still have a fair few vehicles. Will post them up when I get some time for photos.

The Eagle Transporter from Gerry Anderson's Space 1999 (George Lucas thought the Falcon's concept model looked too much like this one):

I had the Eagle transporter as a kid. Great toy and TV show. Was sad to hear of Martin Landau passing away recently.

Love the Corgi Juniors range. That's a decent Starfighter. Almost picked up a few the other week but they were a bit too beat up. Don't mind some paint wear but like the stickers/logos to be present.

The film & T.V. based Corgi Juniors, before Star Wars figures arrived, were a staple of my childhood Very Happy

The majority of my stuff is lightly play-worn, I find it nice to know that the previous owners did in fact have fun with their toys... in fact playware is great for authenticating vintage Star Wars accessories... no matter how good reproductions get they'll never be able to recreate those little specks of dust, ingrained dirt or minor scratches like a genuine article would pick up over it's lifetime Laughing

Nice Robotech figures. I didn't know the line but read that some of the 1985 figures and especially some vehicles are hard to track down. The line was reproduced in 1992 but some of the figures underwent colour changes. I like the Lisa Hayes in her white suit the best. I've seen Mirya in a green jump suit version as well so maybe yours is the 92 version? Not sure if they kept the same coo marks?

Love the Dapol pics :Drool: I have Davros and a couple of Daleks from that line. Also have one of those teeny Lego style Daleks.

I'm a big collector of the Doctor Who Character Options/Underground toys line -my most up to date pics of the collection (have added more since so need another update lol) https://thevintagetoyadvertiser.org/2016/10/27/doctor-who-action-figures/

Also love that Joe 90 vehicle and the mantis alien rocks! I remember well the Matchbox transporter cheers

Thanks for sharing!

I didn't know there was a figure from perfect dark. My friends and i used to play goldeneye all the time and then i got perfect dark (almost a copy of the same gameplay as goldeneye) and we enjoyed it. I don't remember us playing it together though so maybe it didn't have a good multiplayer or something. I do remember many hours wasted playing the game though. Lol.

The Jean Reno figure is a really good likeness. Re your Corgi Hulk truck - I have a French ad for that. Such a cool vehicle!

Curiosity caught me out... What a cool Thread!

I had the big BA figure - that brought back memories and I also had a couple of the matchbox space-age fire-fighters, though I am sure the back/trailer was different.

I had a Captain America "rocket car" but not the hulk - uber cool.Cool
