A Collection a Day #5 – Galaxy Laser Team, originally uploaded by Cool and Collected.
These small plastic toys were produced by TimMee Toys in the early 80’s. After a little-known movie called “Star Wars” came out, a lot of companies tried to cash in on the hoopla by producing similar toys. This is one example.
These are kind of like the bizarro world of Star Wars. There’s a wannabe Darth Vader, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, R2D2, and even some weird turtle creature just for kicks.
Sets of these in the original packaging go for serious bucks on eBay, but if you look around, you can find loose figures for pennies at your local flea market or yard sale. They are pretty easy to spot in all their day-glo greatness.
I have collected so many different things that I thought it would be fun to try and photograph a collection a day and see how far I can get.
