SPACEMEN - AJAX - USA

A range of six hard plastic spacemen. The 3" figures are readily identifiable by their space suits which have exaggerated concertina joints at the knees and the elbows.

There are six poses. All figures have clear plastic helmets.

It is very difficult to be sure about Ajax figures. The company produced them in vast numbers and they were copied by other companies. They carry no identifications marks.

There are, however, some clues about the original versions.
First, they are made of the hard, brittle plastic that clinks.
Secondly, the early colors are bronze, metallic purple, and metallic green. Ajax released a boxed set of these colors.
Third, the quality of the molding is very sharp.

Ajax produced a set of seventeen figures as the Captain of Space Set.
