MOON MAN 001 OK 1950s Silver Hong Kong #3379 Plastic Vintage

OK 1950s MOON MAN Silver Astronaut Hong Kong

He’s short (15 cm) and stumpy but he’s British. He’s an extremely unusual silver finished Moon Man 001. The majority of these battery powered astronauts were finished in yellow plastic as depicted on the box but just a few had the stunning super special sliver chrome paintwork

This awesome space toy is battery operated but untested. Battery housing is extremely difficult to access on this fragile vintage plastic figure. Assumed not to be working so really an item for display only

This excellent vintage item can currently be found with many other cool Sci Fi, TV, movie, vintage and fun collectables on ZapWow and Zap2

  1. I found one of these at an estate sale recently. It is not in good condition but still is pretty cool and extremely unique. Any idea how much it is worth in fair to poor condition? Looks like it was well played with by a child in the 1950’s. LOL.

  2. Hi Gena, what an excellent find! The value really depends on quite a few things with the main consideration being condition and / or any damage (the spring antenna on his back are often lost). If the battery housing is clean and he actually works is also major to the value. The silver version is rarer than the yellow and that would influence the price. Generally I think an old loved Moon Man, not working and without a box would be worth between £50 to £80, but some collectors may even pay more as he is pretty hard to find. Good luck and happy toy hunting
