Hell yeah it ROCKS!! It's looks like a must see.I have been collecting the DVD sets and I love these movies. I don't know why, but I do. I'm still trying to get a vintage Corgi Thunderbird 2 model from my uncle. Oh yeah and the blur sound adds a whole new feel to it, very cool!!

If it's a "POD" toy, doesn't that mean it's an egg-toy from a vending machine? Not that there's anything wrong with that, I hear Japanese vending machine toys are lightyears cooler than the ones here in the US.

These toys are known as trading kits or Gashapon/Shokugan toys. Sold in a box with candy. Wery well done, short production run and highly collectible. :p

Here are the pics :

i believe "pod" toys actually refer to the fact that these are all vehicles that are transported in the "pod" cargo bay of t2. i placed my pre-order for these as i was very pleased with the 1st set that i received. the vehicles are very well detailed, and look great when displayed and played along with the die-cast sized galoobies.

the gashapon or egg toys are the same size as mm's. bc3 had sent me a few of the thunderbird gashapon's awhile back, they work very nicely with a mm collection.

i just received my thunderbirds "pod"set. as i suspected, these are all pod vehicles. i didn't expect, they are all in mm size!!!!!!! :D each one comes complete with a mini diarama within which to place the vehicle.

what i am thilled with most of all, is that this the 1st time in quite a few years, a sci fi toy has been made in mm size!!!!!!!!

please o' please let this be the start of something big........errrrrrr small :o

what's really kewel, is that each of the indoor diarama's connect to eachother, forming a really big inside tracy island playset
