Here are the Flash Gordon shelf items along with some guns. I'll post more when I get a few minutes.

Cracker Spacemen?

23 January 2015 - 07:26 PM

I was reorganizing my space plastic case and came across these metal spacemen from a group I bought in 2011.  The plastic version is Cracker from England?. I sold it to Tinman and he completed his set. The metal pieces look like the Cracker set but I can't find any references to the metal version. Are they authentic or some metal versions made up by someone?

1952 Sylvania Promo Brochure

13 January 2015 - 04:49 PM

This is a Sylvania sales brochure for the 1952 Buck Rogers Space Rangers Kit I purchased. I've never seen it before. It's 8-12 x 11 and 8 pages. Apparently they went to a lot of trouble to promote this event point-of-purchase to help sell Sylvania TV set. The kids get the parents in and then the pressure to buy a tv. :dirtdog:

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.
