Modern Toys - X80 Planet Explorer

The colored dome which is really beautifull illuminated is still having a special effect on me. The saucer itself has very strange and beautifull lithography, a tinted dome that shows colourfull stars, spacenoise and bump&go mystery action. I can imagine that this was a great plaything for children. when placed on the ground in a dark room it shows its real charm: a fantastic lightshow, very spectacular.

The saucer was produced in Japan by Modern Toys in the 1965 ( it showed up in the sears catalog of that year ) Its made out of tin with a plastic dome. I think its one of the best lithographed flying saucers, the colors used... it simply all fits :)

The condition of this X-80 Planet Explorer is near mint and its for sure the best example I EVER had in my collection. No flaws to mention on this one. Works fine and strong as the day it left the factory. The saucer is accompanied by its, VERY HARD to find, original box. The saucer shows up from time to time but NEVER with the original box. 

The condition of the box is also Near Mint, awesome artwork and one of my personal favorites for sure. Hard to ever upgrade saucer and box !

Scarce combination, Hard to find with original box !
