THE 1960s/1970s

Continuing on from their range of vehicles from Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet and The Mysterons, the Eidai Corporation of Japan manufactured a tiny version of Mac's Car around 1973.

It may have been small (about 3" long), but it still featured wings that opened at the touch of a button.

Eidai Mac's Car in box - red version Numbered 8 in the series, the toy was available in red, green and blue.

A later Eidai Grip repackaging (No.6, G-400) seems to be only available in blue - unless you know different. The box art for this version ties in with its Thunderbirds predecessors - it even has the word "Thunderbird" [sic] emblazoned on the box, together with images of Thunderbirds 1, 2 and 4 (which for some reason has changed colour and turned into a hovercraft).

Certain images courtesy of Terry Harle.

Made in Japan.
