My money is on a still off the location shooting. I'm not seeing seams around the hips or elbows. Plus they are not shiny like plastic but matte like cloth. Here's a pic of the toy for comparison. https://figurefanzero.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/whomum1.jpg
Ah, so there is a toy as well after all. Thanks a bunch Lance. They're certainy not those toy figures on the VHS cover. They could be clay maybe?
All I know is those mummies scared the beejesus out of me when I was a kid - Mark J
I don't recall these mummmy men MJ. When will it have been aired?
It originally aired in 1975 so making me 8yrs old- Mark J
I wuz 14 so I may have not watched Dr. Who then. I'd discovered Kung Fu and rock music I think.
A quick search for them instead of using toys as a term yields this picture http://ichef.bbci.co.uk/corporate2/images/width/live/p0/2x/lb/p02xlb5h.jpg/624 which they flipped and did a bit of editing to for the cover, mainly removing all the stuff besides the gateway pyramid and mummy robots.
That's it! Cheers Lance, that's the shot! Great research. I love VHS covers and have lots of books on the covers on the my fave genre, horror.
Hi Woodsy, hope you won't mind me using your blog to alert your readers to the rare all-silver version of the Quercetti Fireball XL5 parachute toy now showing over on my blog. Here's the link: http://kidr77.blogspot.com/2018/07/quercetti-fireball-xl5-times-two.html
Fire away Kid. Looks like a great story too. I'll grab a cold beer and read it tonight. There's also some fascinating insights and memories on the Quercetti/ Rosenthal Toys link over on Paul Vreede's ace Triang Spacex Site - link in the side bar. Paul has communicated with Jack Rosenthal's daughter!
Yes, I remember reading that several weeks back, fascinating reading.
