I first came across COMANSI of Spain when I started to see bundles of simple plastic one-colour Thunderbirds figures in clear plastic bags with beautiful header cards. Individual vehicles were bagged in the same way. The one I remember seeing the most often at Toy Fairs was TB5. These toys have a long heritage that goes way back to 1966. There was even a Tracy Island.
The TB5 I remember can be seen clearly in the lower right corner of this sealed box of Comansi -style Thunderbirds figures by NOVOLINEA of Spain. There's TB4 at the top too. The title reads "1/2 Kilo of Space" - sounds like dark matter! I spotted this today set on Ebay Spain.
And here's the actual TB4 (x2) and 5 by COMANSI themselves (funny how they are fixated with 4 & 5!), along with Jeff, Brains and co. Beautiful box art entitled UFO I think (Los Ovnis). From the description I believe this is from the 1960's. Also seen today on Ebay Spain.
And finally on Ebay Spain today is the same box art as above set in a stunning frame of TB vehicles. I can't see the name COMANSI but it's clearly their house style. Amazing that its survived like this since 1965. It has lost all its contents though! Anyone else like Comansi? Were they sold outside Spain in the 1960's?
