Space 1999 Eagle Transporter

Space 1999 Eagle Transporter

Made by Dinky Toys this was from the brilliant TV series featuring the adventures of the crew of Moonbase Alpha created by our old friends Gerry & Sylvia Anderson. The Eagle transporter was a pretty cool design and even had a detachable container, us kids loved things that came apart.

Looking at it now I thinks Lucas Arts must have been influenced by the design for their Star Wars craft.

Price circa 1976 from Argos £2.45

70s Toys & Games

Remember the old retro toys you used to play with? Did you bounce about on spacehoppers, play pong or ride around on your cool Chopper? Can you recall the heroes Twirling Tim and Hurricane Hank, and who they used to do battle with in the arena? Did you used to come home from school with bruised knuckles from trying to beat 100 clacks on your Klackers? Or was you the studious type carefully making lovely patterns with your Spirograph which, no matter how careful you were, always seemed to cut through the paper turning your masterpiece into a mess.
