• Major Matt Mason Spaceman Astronaut Action Figure Doug Davis - Mattel 1967.

    Major Matt Mason’s space buddy Doug Davis space toy figure. Yellow/orange rubber with black joints and helmet. Figure is in play worn condition with some of the black rubber showing through the yellow (See photographs for detail). The interior structure of the toy is built around wire so that the figure is poseable. Through use some of the Internal wires are broken. In this instance the shoulders and arm joints are all in tact. The upper right leg hip joint wire is broken but the lower leg wire is unbroken. Also the left-lower leg joint is broken but the hip joint is ok. The helmet has light scratching at the front visor and back. Oversees buyers contact me first about postage as will only post recorded delivery tracked and signed for.

  • MATTEL MAJOR MATT MASON SPACE CRAWLER 1966

    Major Matt Mason Space crawler. Working order with winch in operation. The crawler is dusty. The copper contacts inside for the battery could do with a good wire-wooling but I have been able to see the unit working as it should. The deckle on the tray in front of the driving seat is missing. The wheel hub on one side is missing and the other has a split (see photographs). Decals are worn and in some places peeling. The back roller and control switches are complete and working. The hook is missing from the end of the winch cable. Oversees buyers contact me first about postage as will only post recorded delivery, tracked and signed for.

Vintage and Classic Robot and Space Toys

If you're looking for a classic toy to add to an existing collection or are just getting started with collectables, you can't go wrong with vintage and classic robot and space toys. Dating as far back as the 1950s, these unique and quirky toys look great on display and hold their value exceptionally well. They originate from all over the world and there are a huge range of models to suit you, from vintage 1950s Japanese robots to space toys from the 90s and everything in between.

Make sure that you are buying the exact toy that you are looking for. When looking for the right space toy, bear in mind that products with their original packaging are likely to command a higher price both now and in the future. Consider whether it is worth investing in these near mint condition vintage toys or whether you would consider buying opened space toys just to complete your collection.

Popular vintage robots and space toys

Many of the most sought after classic robot and space toys were inspired by the race for space from the 1950s and 60s. People were becoming more and more interested in technology and science fiction books and films about robots and space became increasingly popular. Japan worked hard to create imaginative and creative robot tin toys that would appeal to Western markets fascinated by space and related subjects.

These original Japanese toys are extremely collectable and one of the most popular items that collectors try to get their hands on is the first battery powered robot, Astro Boy, which was released in the mid 50s. American toys from the same era are also in demand and include models like Robert the Robot, Marvellous Mike and Z Man.

The fascination with space continued through the 1980s and 90s with many more popular robot and space related toys released in these decades. Transformers rose to prominence in the 80s and original toys from this era are also collectables, particularly models like Megatron, Optimus Prime and Fortress Maximus.

Moving into the 90s, technology was getting a little more sophisticated and one of the most popular toys of the decade was the Teksta Dog, which was the first robotic pet that seemed realistic and was on Christmas lists worldwide. Why not add a pair of the original Rock Em Sock Em' Robots to your collection for a real 90s retro vibe?
