Here's a great thing for Spacex/ Golden Astronaut/ LP astronaut fans like us - there are 2 issues of One Inch Warrior Magazine (sister publication to Plastic Warrior) with really well researched articles about the history of small plastic golden astronauts as appeared in Spacex and Golden astronauts sets. The articles detail their evolution, usage and ultimate fate as cake toppers, which is a fascinating area in itself! On top of this Plastic Warrior magazine did a detailed article on the bigger LP astronauts. This is now out of print.
However, the editor of both magazines has offered blog readers the following deal! -
Both 'Spacex' issues of One Inch Warrior - #'s 6 & 9 for £6 postage free (in the UK) plus a photocopy of the now out-of-print LP Spacemen article ( from #85 Plastic Warrior) thrown in for free! It really is an excellent package! I've got them and thoroughly enjoyed reading them all.
To take up this offer email the editor of the magazine firstname.lastname@example.org stating what you want and that you saw this offer on this SWORD blog. In the UK the package is £6 post free. Outside the UK there WILL BE A POSTAGE CHARGE. Ask the editor. He will give also give you payment methods accepted and the address.
I really do recommend these magazines. There is so little well-researched material about these toy lines we love but these are the real McCoy!
