I first came across the nifty space toy range Explorers 12 in the early 1990's when I picked up 2 picture books based on the toys, very much like PROJECT SWORD! Sadly, I no longer have them but I remember that they were published by BHS, the great British Home Stores (my old Mum's favourite shop!).So I was chuffed to see the above appear on Ebay the other week. Looking at them now it's like a SWORD/SPACEX hybrid. Great box art too. Anyone got any?
And keen-eyed blog follower John Sisson spotted this brilliant but simple die-cast SPACE SERIES on a US auction site a while back. Would fit well with Spacex vehicles. The far left one is a ROBBY Car copy minus Robby. There maybe a vehicle missing too. Anyone know this set?
