Pyro X-200 Space Ranger - Silver-Gray

Last week we featured a really nifty toy from the Golden Age of space toys - the Pyro X-200 Space Ranger in an eye-glaring yellow and blue color scheme. This week we have a more subdued version in silver-gray hard plastic. For me, this color represents a more realistic - if that's an appropriate description - hue for a spaceship. I mean, think of it, from any of the Flash Gordon/Buck Rogers spaceships, to Rocky Jones 'Orbit Jet', to Destination Moon's 'Luna', ad infinitum, spaceships were silver. Not until 1966 when that beautiful white Starship Enterprise hit the airwaves that we began to think of spacecraft in a different light. Well, without further ado let's take a look at Pyro's X-200 Space Ranger. Enjoy!
