Re. your enquiry to the readership about Xmas presents, thought this might be suitable for the Blog.
This 1950s Adventure Annual was an unexpected and delightful present (under the category of "so bad it's good"). Its main interest is the cover and a space story illustrated by Denis McLaughlin. I knew he used toys as models, but didn't know how far this went. As I am sure others recognise, all the spaceships are Pyro toys -in some illustations even the wheels are included. The space suits are copied from spacemen marketed in the UK and US (Alphadrome website identifies these as Tudor Rose spacemen). Even more extraordinary, the robot is from a "Magic Robot" game!
If anyone wants to see the whole story (it's terrible!) I'll scan it for the blog.
