One of three die-cast "Orbiters" released in Series 2, the Thorium orbiter came equipped with twin periscopes. These were not for the pilot to use, but for the child to detach and use separately, an unusual approach akin to the wing-pistols of the Battle Cruiser. The Thorium Orbiter had a sleek body akin to the Photon Sled, and while not included, it was compatible with the Torque Twister Motor.

Between photography and shipping, this vehicle acquired a nose cone.
