unknown spaceman

Two unknown metallic blue, plastic spacemen that turned up last week in the incredible 1p box, over at Martha Trust. Measuring 70mm, they are slightly taller than the average plastic soldier, and with their swept back hair, and space suit, I think they are from the 1950s. Could it be Dan Dare perhaps?

Martha Trust is the local Hospice, charity shop, and its always a pleasure to spend a lunch hour rifling through their boxes. Its so good infact, that some of the third year Illustration students have started a blog in homage, and its very nice too!

Those are "Rex Mars" figures created by Marx.
