Made by Lincoln International, 1967.

History

Notes

The Angel Interceptor jet was part of a collection of over 3000 toys accumulated by Barry Woodley between 1980 and 2002. Woodley began collecting seriously at the age of 17. He was consistent in his approach, collecting only toy vehicles and robots licensed from television, film and other media such as comic books, that were in mint condition and in their original packaging. Woodley collected for his own pleasure and did not open the toys or play with them. The Angel Interceptor jet was sold with the rest of the Woodley collection by Goodman's auctioneers in 2002.
