Section 2

The toys are made by the company TO-HOKU  SHINSHA, which translates into East-North New Ltd.
The red 'ST' logo printed on the box is the government's approved  SAFETY TOY pass.

These were manufactured in the early 1970's,. The smaller models in red window boxes issued 
a few years later on, with their title series erroneously being called 'THUNDERBIRDS' ...
..but I expect the Japanese have a good reason (excuse?) for this!
