i've always been curious about this one. Too bad it's not in scale with my aoshima thunderbird 1.

Considering that I never saw

Considering that I never saw the Thunderbirds movie, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this toy. I got the Captain Scarlet version, which is kind of funny since all you see is the MEV (the ship is never shown, LOL). The Zero-X did have it's own comic strip, though, so it saw plenty of action in UK comic books.

It's worth noting that this thing is HEAVY. Lots-o-diecast. You could seriously injure someone by swinging this at their head. Plus the engineering and finish are top notch. I particularly like the fact that not only are the connection points for the wings really solid, but the hatches covering them are spring-loaded. So the fuselage isn't marred by big holes when the wings are absent. And you'll want go display and play with it in various configurations. It looks good without the wings (like a rocket) and it looks good with either wing attached (or both).

As a fan of diecast spaceships, this one was a no-brainer at HLJ's clearance prices.

I really have to stop reading

I really have to stop reading your reviews.. Ive seen this for sale and never bothered to look into it, but its super Loving all your reviews. May have to pick this up when I have some extra disposable income which is probably not anytime soon, but I can dream can't I?
