New Captain Scarlet - DESTINY ANGEL!

Gerry Anderson's New Captain Scarlet - Destiny Angel - Bandai 2006

Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons was a 1960's science fiction television show by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. The show featured their signature electronic marionette puppets and scale vehicle models. It was actually their 8th show in this "Supermarionation" style, but it stands out as one of fan favorites (along with Terrahawks, Thunderbirds, and Stingray). And like any successful product of yesteryear, Captain Scarlet got the reboot treatment in the early oughts. In 2005, New Captain Scarlet premiered on ITV in the UK and lasted for two seasons and 26 episodes. The big departure from the Gerry Anderson universe is that this series ditched the puppets for CGI animation. It wasn't a bad show, but a huge part of the property's appeal (for me at least) was those unique puppets. There's a new Destiny Angel figure coming from Big Chief Studios later this year and it inspired me to finally review this older toy. She's very well made and very playable. I only wish she was 1:18 scale like all the other Anderson figures.

Destiny Angel comes with a helmet and a blaster.

The helmet separates into front and back halves and encloses around her head.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Destiny Angel with her 1993 figure from Vivid.



  1. Are you considering adding Gwyndala from Star Trek Prodigy to your collection?

    1. Yes! I have had her few a few weeks but haven't opened/photographed her yet.

    2. what about Phantom Lady from DC Classic Heroes?

    3. Same. I have her, but haven't posted on her. Coincidentally I recently got the new Phantom Lady from the Amazing Heroes line and need to photograph her as well.

    4. Do you have Mercion from Dungeons and Dragons?
