You know the kind I mean, both with and without helmets.

Specially the ones on these comic books:

- Speed Carter Spaceman, by Atlas Comics
- Space Man, by Dell
- Tom Corbett Space Cadet, by Dell
- And some of the Futuro comics

Thanks

Dan

The nearest I have found is one figure in a pack from RAFM in their Space Vixens pack

QUESTION:

Anyone know what the accordion-like quilt ring things on the elbow and knee joints were called?

Dan
PS. Deflatermouse, who makes those "angry Squidmen"?

I think they would be called joints.

Hmm. Long "joints" on this guy then.

"Flex Joints", I believe was the correct term.

Thanks Dave!

Hey Deflatermouse, I think these are also some of those RAFM Traveler figures, right?

I think you are right. I googled spacesuit accordion joints and that same astronaut picture came up.

There are a number of Laserburn adventurers who are pretty close in terms of dress, but the weapons aren't retro ray guns, but some judicious trimming with a scalpel might improve. For those with weapons bigger than a pistol it should be possible to trim down the barrel, drill and insert a pin with a bit GS added to get a more 'authentic' look.

Dan this is where the figures came from:

Wow, that's quite a spread. I better be more careful when I read, so I won't miss details like that.

Thanks so much.
