Through a friend on Facebook I found the sale of what appears to be the original molds for these spacemen.  The people selling the molds has misidentified them as a "Grouping of 1940s's toy robot molds;" I'm not sure how these can be confused with robots, and I highly doubt they date to the 40's.  The asking price for the set is $3800.00 although I haven't asked them for their best price...I wish my pockets were that deep.

Here are pics of the molds...they look a little rusty so they don't appear to be the high-dollar molds that Marx would make:

Sorry Bill, I must've been dosing off when I posted the wrong name.
