Recently I presented Scoop and Bill with some lovely modern white moonscapes. I got them as I have been pondering moonscapes of late for a new project. Moonscapes of the plastic variety are fascinating and in particular this vintage purple one which surfaced on the bay a few years back:
I had thought it to be Kosmic Kiddles but as reader Devlin pointed out in 2013, when it first came up, those are much craggier as you can see:
Devlin reckoned that the purple moonscape was maybe part of a Tim-Mee set of plastic figures. Despite searching high and low for a Tim-Mee purple crater or moonscape or lunar surface I've drawn a blank.
But! I have recently had another lead. Its a slim one but you never know! As soon as I hear back from another blogger I will let you know if this plastic mystery is solved too!
