Default BEHIND THE SCENES SHOTS IN VINTAGE MERCHANDISE




I just got this Mini-Album and never having had it to see up close before was a little surprised and amused by the clamp clearly showing in the middle top of the front cover. Any other shots like this that you fellas have noticed on vintage product for the shows. Perhaps a shot not cropped tight enough prior to publishing in a comic or other piece of merchandise? Many publications now show these little things as a bit of background interest but back then I'm surprised a shot like this made it onto thecover of a prime piece of merchandise. Glad it did though. Fun to see it.

The one thing that I always think of is actually in a show. One of the Terrahawk episodes (maybe more) has a scene with Battlehawk lifting off from its underground lair and the model is outside the set to begin with!!

I have to say it Jim... looks like someone really screwed up and didn't take good adVICE I'm sure the studio clamped down on this sort of thing later.

Yes, in one of the Thunderbirds annuals (1967, I think), there is a picture of the Monorail and you can see the end of the sky canvas backing. I think this was mentioned in another thread as well.

Oh, another one. I have a still from Thunderbirds Are Go (publicity shot, I think) of Thunderbird 2 leaving the hanger and you can see the edge of the bench that the set is on. I'll try and dig it out.

I think I know the shot you mean but I was wondering just how many of these type of shots actually made it into annuals or onto bubble gum cards and stuff. There are of course tons floating around but i was intrigued as to how many slipped through the net of designers and publisher 30 or 40 years back.
