Battle of the Planets Phoenix by Ceji Arbois
Ever see something vintage for the first time and just "Oh I have to have this". That happened to me last month and the Ebay Gods smiled on me that I got it within my budget (that never happens).
This is a vintage Battle of the Planets Phoenix that was produced in France in 1980 and I WOULD HAVE KILLED FOR AS A KID!
More after the jump!
First of all this thing is like six inches long, incredibly perfect for a kid's hand.
Even though I have the missile, I have no idea how to make it fire.
The original owner of this had this as a kid and was obvious a very neat child.
I won't tell you how long it took to get this shot, please tell me you enjoy it....
I assume this toy originated in Japan but i have no idea who made it.
You of course get tiny plastic interpretations of the individual vehicles and a missile. How did this kid not lose these? I've almost lost them twice today.
Everything tucks away in the bottom, thank goodness.
