NEW FLYING SAUCER WITH SPACE PILOT - YOSHIYA - JAPAN

A development of the earlier Flying Saucer with Space Pilot. This red tinplate battery operated flying saucer has a tin astronaut under a central plastic dome. There is a crescent shaped red spark grill behind the dome. The saucer has a bump and go action with space noise and flashing red and blue lights. The astronaut's hand moves.

The saucer has a distinctive large rear fin with a NASA logo. There are small metal antennas on either side of the dome and a small plastic rotating propellor style antenna at the front. A row of holes and a pattern of hatched litho lines around the base of the dome add to the distinctive appearance of this saucer.

KO. The New Flying Saucer by Yoshiya appears briefly in Santa Claus Conquers The Martians, a low budget kid-fi movie released in 1964.
