DAN DARE 12″ ACTION FIGURE 2010 Day2Day Future Space Pilot Eagle 2000AD 2000s

Colonel Dare’s futuristic space adventures were followed obsessively by post war 1950s kids craving a bright future following their recent raw pain, loss and devastation. Utterly classic and an utterly extraordinary 30cm tall Dan Dare Pilot of the Future action figure created by Day2Day Toys in 2010
.
Day2Day apparently secured the world-wide rights to produce Dan Dare merchandise. Sadly it seems this was their first and last Dan Dare product, there may have been a discrepancy over the copyright and unfortunately although a green uniformed version was planned… nothing else ever appeared
