Online specialty retailer FAB Gear is sponsoring FABHUNT! at this year's San Diego Comic Con International, July 14th-17th 2005 at the San Diego Convention Center.

The company will distribute promotional color postcards at various intervals and locations around the convention center.

The postcards show a coupon code for 5% off any online order but 5 postcards will have a different code which is redeemable at the company's website for a free Product Enterprise Gerry Anderson die cast vehicle including a SHADOmobile, Skydiver, or the Moonbase Interceptor & UFO from "UFO", or Rescue, Lab Pod or Freighter Eagles from "Space: 1999", Supercar, Stingray, Fireball XL5, or any other Product Enterprise diecast vehicle due for release in 2005.

The postcards feature an illustration by Eric Kachelhofer of the Eagle spacecraft from the TV series "Space: 1999", which was produced by Gerry Anderson. The coupon codes can be found on the back of the cards. To see if you've won the FABHUNT!, go to and enter an order for any Product Enterprise die cast vehicle, then enter the code when prompted at checkout.

If your code is a winner, the item's price will drop to $0.00. The cards may also be mailed in to redeem the prize. Approximate value of each prize is $95.00, including shipping. No purchase is necessary, and the winning postcards must be redeemed by September 31st, 2005.

Postcards are not redeemable for cash value. Each winning card is good for one (1) prize, including free ground shipping in the continental United States. Supermarionation Replica Collection products are not included in the contest.

FAB Gear is the North American headquarters for Gerry Anderson fans. The company is named after the popular call sign from Anderson's Supermarionation series Thunderbirds, "F.A.B.!", which stands for nothing at all, according to Gerry Anderson. Fab was simply a popular slang term when the series was produced in 1965, and the producer adopted it for the show.

The company's website can be found over at
