Torgano of Sarona.

ASTRONAUTS - MANURBA - W GERMANYPremium spacemen figures initially available with Linde coffee and later sold separately. They were manufactured by Manurba, Manfred Urban of Bamberg in the 1950s. These are very static, arguably unattractive figures with unusual retro styling.

There are 10 different poses. Each figure has an antenna and helmet. Unusually the antenna was cast as part of the leg and has to be detached.

Linde premium versions were packed in plastic bags and had "Linde" marked or burned at some location. Non-Linde versions have no mark and were sold on blister cards and possibly in other unidentified packaging. The blister carded set contains 6 Manurba/Linde spacemen, all hand painted. The card carries no name and no indication of the maker. Also shown is an unpainted carded set of figures.

Available in a wide range of colors. The catalog image is from 1965.
