Who is this Random Space Toy?

Here’s a random image from the toy collection here at the Virtual Hot Tub.  I’ve had this guy since the early 1980’s, I think I picked him up from a jumble sale.  No idea who he is.  At the moment, he’s been rescued from my parent’s loft to end up in my daughter’s toy box.

Standing approximately five inches tall, he is only articulated at the arms and waist.  He looks kind of Japanese, but he’s too old to be Power Ranger.

Is he from some cool proto-anime cartoon or television show?  Or is he just some odd cheapo rip off designed to appeal to kids who love space toys?

If you know who this guy is, please get in touch and let me know.

I might offer a prize…

  1. Hi there, have You identified this yet? It’s been bugging me for a week now. Is there any writing anywhere on him that might give us a clue?

    Regards

    • Sorry for the late reply – I’ve been away.
      The consensus appears to be that it’s probably a bootleg based on some Japanese toy. No one seems sure of a particular series it’s been based on though.
