Hi Astrogonza. I don't remember ever seeing this flying saucer. I like the look of the blue windows, reminds me a little of 20,000 leagues under the sea but i don't know why. A complete guess would be late 70's or early 80's. White plastic was a popular material for futuristic and space themed toys at that time. I'd love to see a box. Maybe zzrobot has one?.

Wow...this is really sweet. I really like this. I don't have a lot of plastic action space toys except one...a plastic lunar module I got at the Chicago Toy Fair two years ago. I would like to get more...time to start another branch out.

Well apparently I have seen this saucer before! This is why I'm always careful to say I don't remember seeing a toy before, instead of "I've never seen that before". I just don't have the recall to remember everything.:blush:

what a surprise I did not think the saucer was that old, it looks in great shape I see no yellow spots
seen in old toys, thanks Joe for the information. I hope to see the box one day.
