    Thanks, Joe...If the one I can get my hands on isn't the same one, then I guess the metal antenna is legit. Now I am starting to wonder if the plastic antenna is original? It seems too large and heavy to me, and I can't find another example it.

    Does anyone know if there was a metal antenna version also? I know someone who has a pretty much mint in box one for sale that has an antenna that seems to be made of aluminum. The antenna has some age to it and looks like it would have been hard to make with hand tools. I actually think it looks better than the plastic antenna to be honest. The picture below is from the DB (plastic antenna) and I believe it's the same picture that's in Gallagher's book. Any help would be appreciated.

    Aren't those blue things ballpoint pen parts?

    I think these came out less than 5 years ago.

    I will have to look at my boxes again after I finish my grilled cheese.

    Thanks, Brian. The spaceship was up for auction on ebay. Not sure what it went for. Do collectors go after ones like this? I am thinking not since the toy itself is common, and misspelling may be a turnoff. Anybody's thought on this?

    Note the incorrect spelling. Is this a common one?

    I stumbled across the one store last year while my wife and daughter were shopping in Charleston. Not a big place. What you see in the picture on their home page is pretty much the whole store. They had a about a dozen tin toys, some were robots.

    Wasn't this brought up on Alphadrome a few years ago? Can't seem to be able to find it when I do a search.
