I’ve always liked space toys. But I’ve owned very few. The ones I admired were inspired by Buck Rogers or Flash Gordon. “Real” space exploration toys were not that exciting. Star Wars came out when I was in High School which was too late for toy interest.
Following are lots of space toy pictures from the museum The only one I own is a working Buck Rogers Disintegrator Pistol.
I wish I had the original Star Trek toys and the Phaser game.
I own a disintegrator pistol which still works!
