Bubbles ? What bubbles ?

"Explorer" moon car, Comansi, Spain, 1980's
"Space Bird", Comansi, Spain, 1980's

Another interesting design for spacecraft was the one adopted by Comansi of Spain. With the success of the  Playmobil / Famobil space line going on at the time - they had to jumb on the wagon and get some spacetoys of their own. This is the result : bubble like pods either on wheels or with reactors in the back. The Space Bird makes me think of an Eagle (Space 1999) - but without the central part and with blown up cockpit.
