Topics I've Started

Kusan Alien Space Car

16 December 2014 - 03:46 AM

I bought this Kusan space car/pull toy today at an auction. I don't remember ever seeing it discussed on Alphadrome. It's 12" long and it's propelled by rotating balls inside clear plastic channels that give the general appearance of tank treads. The hard plastic tank car is pulled by an attached string like a pull toy. The tank is driven by a horn nosed alien with a head antenna. No box with the toy. Does anyone know any more about the toy?

Annual York November Toy Show

01 December 2014 - 10:40 PM

Well, the annual York, Pa annual toy show is here again. My wife and I set up at the large 200 dealer+ show and sell extra stuff we've been accumulating for years. We don't sell a lot but I go mainly to meet people and buy for myself pre- show.  The show is very inexpensive.

This year I purchased a surprise set of 1979 Flash Gordon and Ming electronic ray guns I didn't even know existed. They're a version of a not rare gun with decals and great boxes. Also bought a near mint para-jet set. It's a pretty cool gun in person. It fires a pilot with parachute from a cockfit. It looks more like a rocket plane than jet. Also a nice sparking Space gun.


I got a nice Marx Moon base space man figure for $5.00 and a guided missle dart for $3.00 to complete my Guided missle boxed gun set. I never thought I'd find a loose dart for that set.  It's a large fun show for searching and talking to customers.


I also picked up a very good ELECTRA red click light gun without the end cap and bulb. If anyone has a damaged one with a good end cap and bulb they can have the gun just for shipping costs, probably around $5.00.

50S Space Speller

18 November 2014 - 02:36 PM

I bought this 50s space speller because I thought it was a nice use of the 50s scifi space craze. Whatever helps kids learn.  My granddaughter likes my space stuff and won her kindergarten's award for reading. She also has started to illustrate and write the dialogue for her adventure books. She'll be 6 November 27th. She and her mom were both born on the 27th of November and on Thanksgiving day. I'd like to get her to do a space adventure book.


Look for the special spelling on the speller.

Whazzit Ray Gun

14 November 2014 - 03:48 PM

I'm putting this gun on Alphadrome because someone questioned it sometime ago. I can't find the post. It's an neat gun although not very valuable. The thing I found interesting is that they couldn't seem to be clear on the name or color :scratchhead: .  I like the gun because it has a gold/copper finish. They indicate geen on the box  with both green and white pictured while the gun is actually a gold finish.

The gun also is called Space Commander, Space Gun and Galaxy Gun II :ohmy: . It's 9" long and has  12 space sounds and pulsating light.
