It's The Marvel of the Age! Supercar!

     The Gerry Anderson series Supercar marks for me the real beginning of Supermarionation.  it was an action packed Sf series with a really cool vehicle at its core.  The Johnny Lightning diecast Supercar is certainly amazing.  I found this retracted wing version at the 2011 Tucson Toy Show.   There are other Johnny Lightning Supercar replicas including  one with a cool black paintjob and one made to look as though it was pulled right from one of the original black and white episodes.  I hope to find these other versions in the near future.   Enjoy!


  1. I have the DVD of the whole series and finished watching them a few months back. What a hoot! A great nostalgic trip back in time.

  2. It may not have had the sophistication that later supermarionation shows enjoyed, but it had charm and a very cool vehicle as the centerpiece.
