I was intrigued by this space walker, which featured on Ebay last week by roy from cornwall. At first I thought it was a white variant of Major Matt Mason's famous Crawler pictured below [Ebay]. But reading the listing I saw that it was a Soviet made toy called a Lunnik [which reminds me of Wotan's Lunokhod toy]. But the similarities are striking don't you think? Wonder if there was a Soviet equivalent of Major Matt Mason?
We've seen other US versions of this toy in the Billy Blastoff and Apollo Moon Exploring ranges, but as for the actual techology was the development of this concept an international effort in the US and the USSR? Or are the toys from the same NASA idea? Anyone know the history of this Crawler?
