There were two alien toy contempories who enjoyed a flying disk ride.
Back in the late Sixties flying disks were all the rage.
Mattel gave Major Mason a disk launcher but more intriguingly furnished their cute blue alien Or with the mythical yellow Orbitor in their 1970 catalogue.
Over at rivals Colorforms the Outer Space Men range of figures tantalizingly pictured Alpha 7 with a neat space saucer on its superb backing card.
I had wondered if Mel Birnkrant, Outer Space Men creator over at Colorforms might have admired the diminutive Or and its Orbitor despite it never being produced.
However reading an interview with Mr. Birnkrant about his thoughts on Mattel's Callisto I doubt it!
You can read the interview yourself on Mel's own fabulous website. It starts at the top of Page 3 complete with satirical gif!
I do have a little green man on a saucer in the attic. Well actually he's a money box or bank made by Ever Last toys. Wonder if there's any money in it?
