Return of the Jumbo: From a Galaxy far-out and away, long-lost classic underground Sci-Fi toys from the 70's are back--BIG time! This set of Tim Mee 'GALAXY LASER TEAM - STAR PATROL' figures is proudly manufactured in the United States, and includes six bright green figures of considerable size. All the favorites are here, including turtle-lobster alien, space-sasquatch alien, classic serial space hero, mailbox-shaped droid, sword-wielding villain, and even a Mercury era astronaut. Figures stand up to 4.75 inches tall (120mm) and are approximately 1:15 scale. Made from slightly stiff HDPE plastic with medium detail and very little flashing. Originally produced by Processed Plastic (Tim Mee's parent company) around 1979, they were the larger follow up to the 2 inch space figures released a year earlier. The larger space figures were usually branded as 'STAR PATROL' and were only manufactured for a couple of years. The molds have long been thought to have left the United States, but were unexpectedly found in 2014. These figures celebrate a funky mash-up of space movie characters from the old black and white serials to that famous space opera in a galaxy far-far away. For the Jumbo Team's triumphant return to production, the manufacturer has restored the vintage 'Tim Mee Toys' logo that was retired decades ago. These are real plastic heroes and villains, meant to be set up, knocked down, picked up and played with for years to come! Packed in plastic bag with header card and recommended for ages 5 to 105!

The Galaxy Laser Team were a fond childhood memory, so I've been really thrilled with their recent return. However, I totally missed the larger figures when they were new. Thankfully, VictoryBuy and J. Lloyd have allowed me the chance to be reunited with something I didn't even know I was missing!
These figures are larger than the standard Army Man scale of the familiar GLT, and more in line with popular action figures. They have a substance to them, and the level of detail you can see in the sculpts is pretty astonishing. Plus, these are from the original molds, so you can see the how both the robot and the turtle lobster man looked before they were modified. Computer Lady and Geiger Counter Astronaut are missing from the assortment, but they were never done as part of this series (a pity, really).
These figures are a fine complement to any collection of Army Men toys or space toys. They are a lot of fun and have the sort of authentic retro flavor that is...
Very nice set of the super hard to find large size Galaxy Laser Team / Star Patrol figures !! I've got a set of original jumbo size & it's not easy to get them all, especially the robot.
Molds must have been in great shape...........these guys are pretty much free of any flash. Even the mold lines are clean & smooth.
Overall excellent production. I really hope more colors come out in the future like the smaller figures. Awesome, inexpensive way to build up your Star Patrol collection.
This big ol' bag of giant Galaxy Laser Team figures hit me square in the chest with the mighty sledge hammer of nostalgia! I got a bag of these (the original Army Man sized versions) when I was kid for Christmas and they remained one of my favorite toys for years. Later on, in my life as a grown-up collector, I managed to find some of the larger version, although in pretty beat-up condition. Thank the toy gods that Tim Mee re-released these figures in all their jumbo glory! I couldn't love these more if I tried. Now to buy a second set to paint!
