Published under the Collectors Club of Great Britain banner from Warners Group Publications, the most popular Gerry Anderson collectables go under the spotlight, celebrating Dinky Toys Thunderbird 2 and FAB 1 in miniature, and more.

Dinky’s Thunderbird 2 was first released in 1967, and, due to its great popularity, was produced in several different versions until production was stopped in 1975. The blue edition features on the cover of the magazine, not the original green release, per the TV show model.

The 300th landmark issue, crammed with hobby news, also features “Memories of M.A.S.K.“, looking at collectables from the short-lived TV show; “Rise of the Robots“, taking a look at the intergalactic robots produced by the Japanese toy maker, Nomura; unravels mysteries that abound in the world of diecast collecting; and includes 10-pages of the latest auction results, to help you value your vintage toys.
