Archer Space People Set No. 129

For the past whole bunch of weeks we've been featuring the first seven space figures produced by Archer which they called the "Men of Tomorrow". In the scant three years they produced space toys (1953-56) several more series appeared. The one we'll look at next is their "Space People' which included the first seven poses but added three woman and a space boy. Even back then, Archer was trying to colonize the cosmos with entire families. 

Today's set, No. 129, only has three figures, but there were other sets with more figures and of course they were sold individually as bin toys. We'll post these three figures first over the next few weeks and then cover a few more. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

No wonder so few boxes survived - the backs were perforated so that it could be separated into four trading cards
