I had a few of these soldiers as a kid – my first ones came free after sending off some Space Raider crisp packets.
Last year I was thinking about those soldiers and looked them up online – before I knew it i had bought 100s of them on eBay.
It got a bit out of control and I am now selling it all as I no longer have the space for them. It’s a little heartbreaking as I think there is definitely something magical about them……..the removable heads, the little guns, the metal bases, the claws on the green spaceship, the sticky paint on the mutant figures……….Britains absolutely smashed it with this range!

I think we picked them up at car-boot sales (the American equivalent would be yard sales except they usually took place on school fields, etc.) as I’m pretty sure we never had any new, but I recognise the little alien guys and those awesome two-handed rifles. I had the round tank and I think the yellow ship that looks like it has a ball in the middle.

My Father traveled to Europe a lot for business in the early 80’s. I never had the space toys unfortunately but I had a lot of Nazis and American soldiers. Really cool die-cast rafts and jeeps and a really cool Nazi Volkswagen Thing with a mounted machine gun. I also had this cool Howitzer that launched little shells. If I remember correctly there was a toy store in the Cleveland area that started to sell these toys along with the Space stuff. I remember those little red headed aliens and always thought hey were cool.

I failed to mention the great connecting aspect of these toys. Its kind’uv shown on the back of the box where different sets are combined. “Aww nostalgia” is right! Feel like I’m spending my adulthood recapturing my childhood!

(I’m English) I used to play with them at my grandparents house, we had a box full of them – it never really occurred to me to check now what they actually were. I think they’re mostly in my Dad’s loft. I loved the little black aliens with the red heads too, and I’m pretty sure I had some yellow spacemen. I had a white version of your green ship I think, and I’m sure I had the yellow ship in the above picture of the range. Aww nostalgia.
