Eagle One by Dinky

Besides having a name that is instantly hilarious to young boys, Dinky also made diecast toys covered in all kinds of awesome. Take for example the Eagle One from Space:1999, this was diecast at it’s most brilliant and it was happily just one of the many things they turned out from the Gerry Anderson Stable.

    Anybody know the scale of the Batmobile and Batboat? They look a lot like the Hot Wheels 1:50 versions currently available.

    I got a UFO Interceptor back when they came out. Fires the missile, and you could even put a sticky cap on it and make it pop when you fired it. Still have it and it's in great shape.

    Snagged an Eagle off eBay a few years back. Always wanted one of those, but never saw it in the stores back then.
