This is the fourth in a series of special re-posts for the holidays, remembering the coolest sci-fi toys of the Space: 1970 era. Hope you enjoy these "reruns" and have a great holiday season.
I might too, if I'd actually owned one. I do remember seeing one in
the store in '79 and being both fascinated and frightened by it. I
hadn't seen the movie - only coverage of it in Starlog and Fantastic Films
- but I did ask my folks to buy it for me. Unfortunately once my mom
glimmed the price tag and got a good look at the sheer grotesqueness of
the figure, there was no way she was going to pick it up for me.
Instead, I'm pretty sure I got a Moonraker space shuttle model kit... and, you know, I was pretty happy with that.
Ahhh... the Seventies.
