A query regarding The Hood's Spy action:

Can The Hood spy on TB4 when it's loaded into either TB2 or FAB2?

As this is played as being a photographing exercise, should this be possible when TB4 is essentially hidden away in either TB2's pod, or FAB2's 'garage' (the garage as seen for the first time in the new TB65 episodes btw!) as opposed to being 'out in the open'?

Bearing in mind that the rules expressly forbid the Hijack action on TB4 under those conditions, I didn't want to assume one way or the other, simply because it wasn't explicitly stated.

Having said all that, I could probably confuse the issue even further when you take into account that the spy action can be taken against the TB craft when they're in the South Pacific space, technically all tucked away on Tracy Island..... whistle

I guess, if you can spy on them there, you can spy on them anywhere?

Thoughts, anyone?

There's no rule that explicitly forbids it, so Spy away.
(Just imagine the Hood sneaking into TB2 (or FAB 2) and attempting to take a photo.)

If you want to use a precedent from the TV show, there was the clip show "Security Hazard". A young boy stows away on TB2 and isn't discovered until they get back to Tracy Island.
