Who could have believed that a toy robot made in Japan from scrap tin would one day fetch GBP70,000 at a Sotheby's auction? Blast Off! chronicles the golden era of space toys, an age of imagination unbound by the more mundane realities of space travel ushered in by Sputnik and the Space Age. Containing hundreds of striking color photos of some of the most beautiful and ofttimes bizarre toys ever created -- many never before seen in print -- Blast Off! unearths the nearly lost histories of these space treasures and the companies that created them.
Buy Blast off!: Rockets, Robots, Ray Guns, and Rarities from the Golden Age of Space Toys Ltd book by S. Mark Young from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
