Thread: The X-Bomber from Star Fleet - an 80s toy that wasn't, but should have been!

  1. Default The X-Bomber from Star Fleet - an 80s toy that wasn't, but should have been!

    In the UK, we never saw toys based on the Star Fleet TV show from the early 80s. I think some of you recall the show, based on looking around here. As the show came from Japan originally, they had some toys, but they tended to focus on the big red robot, Dai-X. Their X-Bombers were... not brilliant.

    I'm trying to right that wrong now, having created an X-Bomber in Lego. So if you'd like to see it as a toy for your children now, please do go and look at the Lego Ideas site - there's also a Thunderbird 1 there that's attracting a lot of attention!

    Many thanks for looking and supporting, if you choose to - if this is out of order please do delete this post, but I thought it might appeal and it's tricky finding the right sort of place to try and make people aware of this. My son really likes the model!
