hi - the pics of the cap and the epaulettes are of my full adult-size scarlet suit

hi yeh its the cap gun! I had a carded one a few years ago but had to sell it when I was skint

I have the water pistol one too and there is a dart firing version

there is at least one TB4 on ebay

the gun is groovy - the cap mechanism flicks up out of the top - my camera battery is flat but I'll get some pics asap

I wasn't jealous, just very, very sad when it was time to go home, I would buy that toy if I could find one.

Any chance of a picture of the gun out of the holster please?

Thanks for sharing, that's brilliant

I had the cap gun and a water pistol. A friend has a gun almost identical to the cap gun but it fired darts. Like the guns you could buy the helmet separately. Mine had a yellow microphone.

does anyone know how the cap was packaged - I suspect it may have been loose..? I think you could get it separately from the suit..?

I had a red metal cap firing gun which was great and also a plastic one similar to this but with a plastic trigger. I don't think it did anything, it looked like a water pistol but I don't think it fired water or caps.

There were plastic Scarlet guns made by C21 - pretty accurate, as said a cap gun and darts and a water pistol. The red metal one was by Lone Star. I`ll take some pics when I have chance.

Bernie, here`s a JR21 tb4, no excuses matey!

I saw a site with a pic of a rare Captain Scarlet rifle based around the gun which I have never ever seen before.

I'll get some more pics in a few days - I've got the whole suit boxed apart from the belt

I've also got a spare cap and tunic

Hi Chris, does your Lone Star pistol still have its original Spectrum roundel? If so, can you please post up one or two close-up pics? Thanks!

Default Scarlet guns

Hi guys

I promised to post some pics of my collection ages ago but trying to be clever and after a request for some better resolution pics I got my mate to take some pics of my stuff. Unfortunately the resolution was too good and my photoshop would open the images as they were too big.

I will redress this shortly.

However, I do keep reference pics of all scarlet merchandise I dont have.

Here's a pic of the Mysteron rifle (which is'nt mine) I have stored for reference. This is very rare as far as scarlet merchandise goes.

I do have mint boxed lone star pistol and the C21 water pistol and target set both un opened which I will post I promise.

I think this "celebrity" is wearing part or all of the costume set, though the tunic may be a custom piece:



And can anyone guess who this "celebrity" grew up to be?
