Ultra-Ultra-Rare Spacemen

Well kids, you're going to have to sell a lot of newspapers to save of for this set of spacemen figures - but boy, take a look at 'em!

This is a whole set of mold making masters of pristine detailed figures made by Ferriot Brothers, the talent behind the absolute best sculpted figures for toy maker Marx. The solid metallic figures were sent around to factories to make the soft molds that the plastic toys were cast from. These didn't see a high production run, and others like the "Tomik Cannon" never saw production at all. Look, they even still have their factory identification tags attached.
