Golden Astronaut

by Multiple Toymakers

The US version of the Triang Spacex 1 series is called 'GOLDEN ASTRONAUT' made by Multiple Toys with 3 sets or phases, each one having 4 craft:


  1. Interplanetary Patrol
  2. Moon Exploration
  3. Space probe

These correspond to the UK sets respectively with the same craft:


  1. Outer Space Travel
  2. Moon Base
  3. Space Station

Unsure if there is a set corresponding to the UK set 'Earth Base'

At todays prices, $79+ for each set of four(courtesy of Toy Shop Newspaper). Check out ebay too
