"El" scooter with "El" Astronauta

It seems Spanish toy company EGE got the tooling of a very, very popular toy in the 60's. Japanese toymaker Masaduya had already 3 versions on the clock, one with an astronaut, one with Snoopy and one with Santa Claus. Instead of continuing with the same concept, they obviously sold the toy (or exchanged it against something else ?).
EGE has very few spacetoys known (one very nice space shuttle shows up now and then here in Portugal ). This is one of them. Notice the old NASA logo. And the freckles on the kid's face!
