SATELLITE FLEET - TPS - JAPAN

Lithographed tin chain of four flying saucers. The first saucer pulls the train of three smaller saucers. It is in a tradition of similar toys such as the duck pulling ducklings.

There are two versions versions of this toy. The earlier version is a wind up toy with a yellow color, it is marked with an X and has a rotating antenna.

The later version is a friction toy in silver and red and is marked with a star and SS12. It does not have an antenna.

The boxes for both versions are basically the same but have Mechanical or Friction wording. A Cragstan logo box is also known.

The toy has been reproduced with the unfortunate typo "UFO Stace Shit". It is red with UFO printed on the smaller satellites.
