Explorer 12 Books

Each vehicle had an associated book released sold separately from the toys themselves. Marine, Polar, Terrain and Space were like the toys exclusively available from BHS and were just part of the merchandise range. The main page artwork was by famed artist Mike Noble (TV 21) and contained 2 stories plus some fictional technical information on the vehicles and trailers. The center page also offered a view of the entire range of vehicles. I have Terrain, Polar and Marine but I'm missing the space annual from the collection. If you have it or are willing to scan it to JPEG drop me a line. I have scanned mine to PDF files on high quality, download them from...

  3. I had the explorer 12 terrain book and toy, but unfortunately no longer have them. Brings back good memories! Thanks for making the blog. Do you by any chance know where I can get a hold of the terrain toy?

  4. I have the space explorer 12 EX1 amd EX4 without battery cover bodies. Both are yellow. Getting ready to ebay them (debating to sell with Stompers/Rough Riders or separate).
