Mini Capitan Boy was a Mexican hybrid of SpaceX toys and miniature Billy Blastoff toys.
I first stumbled across it last year on You Tube in a video about toy firm Lili Ledy.
Beyond this new information has been scant about this unusual brand of toys.
However it is possible from the film to see some of these Mexican toys quite clearly. One of these is the miniature Scout Car pictured here from an online auction. But just how small is it?
The mini Billy Blastoff figure is 1.5 inches tall according to a Worthpoint auction listing.
Guessing how small the scout car toy is can be estimated from this.
It would appear to be 2 to 3 inches long to me.
Also this group shot below has several mini Billy Blastoff figures.
For a sense of just how scaled down the range was compare the normal sized Billy Blastoff Scout car centre left and the Mini Capitan Boy version front centre above the letter T in the word ROBOTIN.
You can also compare large and small versions of the rest of Billy's range too including the Walker and the buggy with pincers at the front.
Another possible yardstick of size is this similar little red Scout Car knockoff which appeared in several LP and Apollo Moon Exploration style sets like this pictured.
This could very well be the same scale as the Mini Capitan Boy toy.
Fortunately its dimensions and features have been beautifully catalogued on blog friend Paul V's Triang Spacex Toys website.
Looking at the dimensions on Paul's site the orange scout car may be smaller than the Mini Capitan Boy version. Its hard to say without having them side by side.
Its interesting to note that Paul's site also features one of the Mini Capitan Boy Spacex-based toys, the T-5 Tractor lookalike with the double launcher
This is clearly visible in the Lili Ledy film on You Tube. Here's a still. The double missile launcher yellow tractor is just behind the front P3 helicopter.
Comparing the sizes on Paul's brilliant site, its also interesting to note that the dimensions of this toy were slightly bigger than the Tri-ang SpaceX T-5 and Golden Astronaut Terrain Tiger originals.
Were all the Spacex-inspired toys in the Mini Capitan Boy range slightly bigger than the Tri-ang/ Multiple Toymakers versions?
We will just have to wait for a Lili Ledy Mini Capitan Boy range to surface before we'll know exactly what the rest of Spacex-inspired vehicles look like, how big they were and if and how the little spaceman could sit on them!
