FLASH GORDON AND HIS LP FRIENDS

I'm beginning to think that you could devote your entire life to collecting variations of LP astronauts! Here's some rather cute Flash Gordon ones on Ebay. Jumping and Bandwagon spring to mind!

  2. I kept looking at the rather classic blue flying saucer inbetween Flash's head and the mechaniod looking space ship until I realised it was the hole where the display hook goes through!

  3. *Toad wipes away tears of laughter* eviled - you are so silly ^_^

    My first thought was that the purple sphere looks like a Jagaroth spaceship with a Batman logo on it ... but on checking, found that it does not - the legs are not right for Jagaroth.

  7. It's telling the shop assistant what wire peg size to use with Eviled's 'flying saucer'...teehee!

    'Pressed' [That's such a rubbish verifier I nearly got it wrong on purpose just to get a new one!]

  8. Nice one Mav. I didn't know they did that. Are there still such things as rack toys? I browse pound shops now and then but never see any space stuff or monsters.

  9. The pound shops here sometimes have space and monster related items. Recently they had those dinosaurs Maverick noted on his blog. And a little while back they had the figures from "Monsters & Aliens" ... or is it "Aliens Monsters"? *Toad shakes head, lamenting poor memory*
