If you did not know it, Hake’s the nostalgia auction powerhouse, is in the midst of another one of their wonderful auctions. Each new one brings with it unique treasures. If you have not checked it out, I suggest you pop over and browse. If I might make a suggestion of where to start your journey how about this wonderful Colorforms Outer Space Men Poster.
According to Hake’s
18×24″ glossy paper poster for retailers to promote the first series of seven posable action figures by Colorforms (see items #2925-2931). These were released in 1968 and as pictured on the poster include Commander Comet, Xodiac, Colossus Rex, Electron +, Astro-Nautilus, Alpha 7, and Orbitron. Poster features great images of the actual figures produced, complete with their weapons/accessories. NM, uncirculated condition. The ultimate promo piece to display with your Colorforms Outer Space Men collection. From the archives of toy designer Mel Birnkrant, creator of the Outer Space Men and comes w/signed COA.
