    Vintage Ray-Gun :thumbsup:

    The photograph doesn't show it very well, but there's a nice stippled lightening bolt running across the gun.

    Beautiful header art (and type treatment), too! Devious plastic color choice.

    I know these videos are being placed in the Whatever section, but in case you missed it, go to the 21 minute mark to see the incredible toy museum in Venice. The Ledra collection is fantastic.

    Yeah, I've been following him on Facebook since he opened it. Its a nice varied collection in a beautiful looking space. His friend has a world-class vintage Flintstones collection, which is very impressive too!

    I've been searching for one of these for about 5 years or so, and then two pop up within two weeks of each other :thumbsup:

    rare and you have the color variants and it is surrealistically cute? That's a score!

    ^ so many things I'd love to own. The Nitto Yokai will always be a regret that I didn't pick them up when they were affordable. The vintage shelves really suit the vintage vinyl btw, nice choice :thumbsup:

    Spanish toy by 'Famosa'. He's 8" high and has a spinner on the Saxophone, so when you squeeze him the flower disk spins!

    I'm thinking an 'Alpine' style hat ... but i'm not really sure. I'm getting no hits for him on google ... i think he's fairly old.

    Nifty! Mushrooms on the hat. Looks sort of Alpine / Tyrolean, however no turnup at the back of the brim, customary on that haberdashery.
    Another wonderful, intriguing find, The Moog, ala the weird lederhosen boy from last year. Thanx for sharing!

    p.s. not sure why the post split in two!

    p.p.s. Sort of leprechauny looking, clothing and hat, albeit not green and missing the buckled ribbon.

    Ah yes. I didn't recognise them as mushrooms!

    Indeed, that is another possibility. It does have a whiff of Leprechaun, the ginger hair and all.

    I'm very happy with him, quite an elaborate sculpt and the spinning flower adds a little bit of extra panache.

    Dimples echo morels, but not the cap shape itself. Odd haberdashery adornment.

    Yep, a whiff.


    Spinning flower seals the deal! Wonder, do you know when that sort of bellows-activated spinner feature first appeared on vinyls toys of that sort?
    A bit sophisticated, seems should be modern, however he doesn't look to be of anywhere near recent vintage. A bit of online digging revealed nada on the toy nor its features, however...

    https://www.famosa.es/en/about-famosa/
    "In 1957, Fábricas Agrupadas de Muñecas de Onil, S.A. (FAMOSA) was born from the alliance of a number of toymakers in Toy Valley (Alicante, Spain). The group formed in order to remain competitive in the market due to difficulty finding funding, changing technologies, and the emergence of plastic toys.
    More than 50 years later we continue to be Spain’s premiere toy manufacturer, leading the industry in Spain and Portugal and firmly established in more than 50 countries, including France, Italy, Mexico and the United States."

    Can't be more than 66 years old, unless one of those in that alliance had that name prior to their unification.
