Space Wars 1977


Christmas 1977 is such a unique period of time, every kid in the country had space toy fever thanks to a certain movie. However, no physical toys existed  (the cardboard promissory note was clever but come on) meaning it was a golden age for the Ideal Star Team (hastily slapped together to captilize on the movement) and pre-existing space toys like Mego’s Micronauts, Mattel’s Shogun Warriors and Zee Toy’s Metal Man.  


It all hit the fan in 1978.
