DYNA-SOAR: THE RAREST OF ALL SWORD DESIGNS?

Are these the only two DYNA-SOAR toys ever made? I know there are model kits (Anagrand etc) but discounting them, is this it for toys? If so it would probably make the Dyna-Soar [along with the Nuclear Ferry] the least copied of all SWORD toys, as amazingly, there are even more Booster Rockets toys (C21, Hover, Spacex), Moon Ranger (C21, Tarheel and Italian Tarheel) and Scramble Bugs (C21, Hover miniature, Imai), which are themselves obscure in terms of replication. Any more Dyna-Soars?
Century 21 Dyna-Soar 1967

Space Voyagers miniature Dyna-Soar [far right] 2008

PS. On second thoughts I reckon the SCOUT 3 has no toy copies at all, making it the scarcest design.

  2. Yeah, Ed, TK Maxx were selling them cheap last year. Worth asking still. I repainted my mini Dyna Soar in SWORD toy blue:
