Airfix Eagles - Captain Eagle (1978)

A long lost but much loved toy from back in the day.  There were a few different Eagles action figures but this was the coolest because 1978 was all about the Sci-fi and these guys were the same size as Star Wars figures.  If I recall correctly I think Captain Eagles and Han Solo were best mates and along with an army of time-traveller Micronauts often defended the universe from Baron Karza and Darth Vader but that was all in a living room far far away.

  1. I had this figure in about 1979 or 1980, but by then he'd been renamed Captain Superspace and was part of a set of three (the others were an alien called Tartron and a villain called Chrome Dome, who was basically just the Captain but all in black with an opaque grey helmet). I think they may have been knockoffs.

  2. I think they were originally German or Italian toys that Airfix cherry-picked and repackaged. Perhaps yours was one of the originals.

    2. Interesting. Those are certainly the figures I had, but I don't recall the tank.

  3. I have the Dr. War figure and I have been trying to find a value on it, and I haven't found a value yet.

    1. Apart from sticking it on e-bay with a high reserve price, I'm not sure. Anyone else know?
