TootsieToy 1978 #1793 Flash Gordon and The Evil Ming Playset - Pt2

Today we'll take a quick look at the figures included in the TootsieToy Flash Gordon set. The hard plastic figures are fairly large measuring from 3 1/8" (7.9cm) H for Flash to 3 3/8" (8.6cm) H for Ming while the spaceships are much smaller by comparison measuring only 5 1/8" (13cm) L x 1 1/2" (3.8cm) H. I like their retro styling which stays true to the 1930s roots which can plainly be seen on Dale Arden's bun hairdo. Ming has a deliciously malevolent bad guy look to him while Flash's All-American hero look is nicely done as well. Next time we'll take a look at the support vehicles. Enjoy!
