Comansi Spacemen - futurism made in Spain.

To illustrate one of the many companies that produced toys in neighbour Spain, I present you some of the plastic Space / Astronaut / Thunderbirds figurines. The design is fabulous. Please read more about this here: http://projectswordtoys.blogspot.pt/2012/04/beans-grits-and-tracy-boys.html#comment-form. The astronauts I got all have "OVNI" and a number "2000, 2001, ..." printed on the base. The figurines from the Thunderbirds (bigger heads - easily recognizable) do not have markings.


Astronaut, Comansi, Spain, 1960's



The nice thing about these figurines is that they came in a variety of sets and boxes, and that collectors are finding very interesting mixtures of sets - even including cowboys and indians... Some more expensive sets (Thunderbirds window boxes / UFO etc.) had them even hand-painted. Please see the astronauts sold in "Battle of the Planets" packaging here... http://geoffstoys.blogspot.pt/2011/10/jecsan-batalla-de-los-planetas.html
