FLASH GORDON SET - TORGANO - ITALY

Large 8 cm figures made of a Bakelite-type hard plastic. Hand painted. Collectors refer to this rare set as Torgano Flash Gordon spacemen because of a similarity to the characters in the Flash Gordon serials. The top two figures are both Flash Gordon, one holding a ray gun in each hand while the other, a clear helmeted figure, holds a space rifle. At his feet you can just make out a dead alien. Torgano of Sarona.

The two other figures are Prince Thun, the Lion Man of Mongo and a Mechanical Man. There are at least two paint versions of each figure. Date? Probably 1950s.
