Kids Incorporated. (1984) ....where have I seen those space helmets before?

I previously blogged about this; Kids Incorporated - NASA Space Week (1984)
Which featured a Men into Space helmet & suit and four other unknown space helmets.  I suggested at the time that such items were too expensive for such a cheap show to manufacture themselves, therefore they would have been from somewhere else.  Well the mystery was solved quite quickly when blog followers; John Nowak came up with the answer, and the ever reliable Tim Armstrong gave his agreement.  So, until such times as we track down more of them, I present to you the first recycling of the 1965 to 1968 Lost in Space, Jupiter 2 space helmets.

1968 to 1984 is a lot of years so where else did they pop up?

Two were sold at auction in new colours so they've definitely been somewhere else in between times.  Lets go track them down and report back here with our findings.

Exhibit A and B below but that may just be the tip of the iceberg.
