DAN DARE SET - CRESCENT TOYS - ENGLAND

A boxed set of seven spacemen and pieces of equipment. The figures are hollow cast lead and are hand painted. This can lead to some variation in the colors of individual items. The equipment is a rocket and rocket launcher. (The top set probably has a missing rocket replaced with a figure).

The sets can vary in their composition and I have shown four combinations. All sets feature Dan Dare in either his space suit or RAF uniform or both. A Treen or Meekon green alien also appears.

All come in the same card box with a graphic display of a rocket launch site with Dan Dare. One or two of the figures are prone to metal fatigue, particularly the rocket launcher.

The set was announced in September 1951 in Eagle 2:22. Price 5/-
