Matchbox Space Warriors

Posted by MABO on 31 Oct 2017, 17:29

In my collection I have since my childhood-days some silver space figures. I did not remember, which brand they are.

But then on PSR I found the artikel about the history of Matchbox. And it cleared up a mystery:

My figures are extremely fragil. And some of them have been broken, So I used liquid Green Stuff to fix the one with broken legs. Only one gun has a destroyed weapon. For this I had to found another solution, as you can see.

In general I wanted to give them the 60th, 70th colourful space-movie-look. Comments are welcome!

what a hell of job, Jan! They look terrific. I like the aliens most. The tone of green of the skin is perfect.
