Colorforms: Ready for the next 25 years

Colorforms: Ready for the next 25 years

Toyfair 1978- Those “Space Warrior” sets are something that confused me a great deal as a kid, I wondered if those amazing action figures were inside the boxes or if they were available seperately. Sadly they were called “The Outer Space Men” released and cancelled well before I was born.
Luckily, the lines creator Mel Birnkrant is extremely generous with his time and explains everything on his amazing website. To learn more about these “Space Warrior” sets please visit this page.

    Sorry you missed out. I had these colorforms and LOVED them! Unlike for many of today's kids, any toy we got was a real treat. I mean, I had my fair share, but I played the crud out of every one.

    The only thing I wonder is how did I get one of these in the late 70's if they were no longer out? One of those mysteries I guess….

    I had all of them back in the 60s. A great toy series and one of the more valuable collectable toys. Often see ones in good shape going for $750 or more.
