Looks like a character out of one of the early Japanese movies...did he try Japan?

I've never seen anything like that, except we used to have those figures with elastic and beads that would bend, sit down, etc.

Kyle, get a life.

Well, they were really really small, only about an inch tall, with round bases, they were neat toys and came in all colors. some had rifles.

Now, now, one man's foolishness is anothers epiphany. I'll keep my eyes open Kyle, lol.

We had those toys with elastic and beads that would bend and sit. They were kept in a bag of "car toys", to amuse us on trips, and we thought they were pretty boring. I wish we had had a small army of 1" spacemen with guns. We could've set up intergalactic wars that stretched all over the back seat and the floorboards - if the resulting warfare sound effects didn't drive our father crazy.

was that Major Matt Mason's martian friend?

Probably the most damaging thing that I ever did to Casca-2 was to buy him hundreds and hundreds of little green army men, along with companys of tanks, and batteries of artillery. Man I'd wipe them out in the yard eveyr saturday with the lawn mower.

The '60's had the greatest kids toys. We had gaint spring loaded bazokas that would shoot a rock harder than a kid could throw. We had noisy tanks and guns of all types, and best of all we had Lawn Darts!

Kyle, I've done some Googling around on this and have found lots of vintage spacemen/Martian figurines. But with your artwork as my exemplar it's hard to know if any given kind is the kind. Did they definitely have distinct antennae?

Posted by: Matt on Jan. 7, 2006

Yes, and they were as I said before, very tiny.

Is this a possibility?

Kamen Rider?

Kyle, thinking really hard, I'm pretty sure these might've been cereal premiums. I had something similar when I was a kid, and that's where I remember getting mine.

Take a look at the one on the left(you'll have to modify the address a bit--annie wouldn't let me post it):

close, but not quite. the ones I remember had very flat and perfectly round bases. Also, they were brown, yellow, and two shades of green, might have had other colors as well.

Kyle, you weirdo, have you checked the mirror?

Posted by: shelly on Jan. 9, 2006

I'm pretty sure these aren't the ones but, funnily enough, I had these when I was a kid! (It must've been the mid-70s.) I had completely forgotten them until I saw the pictures just now. As with Victor's link, you'll have to replace the "cee-gee-eye" with the appropriate letters:
