Spacemen From Spain

5 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Spain has a long history of plastic figure manufacture. Montaplex (or Monta-Plex) is one of the big names. I don't know much about them so I thought I'd at least lay down a marker for other contributions.

Here are four spacemen that were, I believe, released in those surprise packs with sweets. We called them Lucky Bags in England.

Thanks Brian, always good to see something new. Any idea on the date of release, how big they are?

So Montaplex was the maker?! Never heard before. Even our german plastic soldier experts didn´t knew.

The only guess was, that these space men came in "Wundertüten" (wonder bags, surprise bags).

They seem to be rarities. Until half a year ago I didn´t knew of their existence.

There are 4 types that are half-relief, two space men and two aliens. The aliens have hands with only three fingers.

Made of soft plastic, the size is between 5 and 5,5 cm. They came in yellow, blue, red, green, grey and white.
