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. One of these days....

Man, I wanted an Eagle transporter.

I did, however, have me a Corgi Batmobile and BatBoat.

BM and R must have looked pretty funny backing that trailer in down at the local ramp. I'll bet he made sure to wash the BatBoat clean of aquatic plants, though. I bet he made sure EVERYONE washed their boats...

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

You're a lucky guy Arkonbey. Having the die cast version would have been great. I did have the plastic version though, and was cool with that.

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.
