We're looking at Archer Plastics 1st Series Spacemen for the next few weeks, what they called the 'Men of Tomorrow'. The names given here are just suggestions because no one knew exactly what Archer had in mind when they designed these poses. It has been suggested that this guy was holding a radio, or scientific instrument, but the idea I like the most is that he's holding a portable force field generator. Okay, sounds good to me! You can call it anything you want of course because after all it's just a toy. It's not uncommon to find the cord broken. If it's just split that's not so bad, but when it's totally broken off that's not good. However, Archer pumped these out by the millions so finding an intact shouldn't be much of a problem. Enjoy!

Here's a good example of an original helmet. It's also a good example of how these helmets shrunk over the years. I cannot pull this sucker off of the figure!!
