Product Description

From a Galaxy far-out and away, an underground Sci-Fi classic from the 70's is back! This set of 50 Tim Mee 'GALAXY LASER TEAM with SPACE MONSTERS' figures is proudly manufactured in the United States, and includes 24 black and 24 light gray figures along with 2 small space fighters for maximum play value. All your old favorites are here, including turtle-lobster alien, space-sasquatch alien, classic serial space hero, mailbox-shaped droid, sword-wielding villain, 2 Mercury era astronauts, and even the heroine with her trusty computer console. Figures stand up to 2.25 inches tall (54mm) and are approximately 1:35 scale. X-wing rockets are 3.75 inches long and smaller scale. Made from slightly stiff HDPE plastic with medium detail and a little flashing. Originally produced by Processed Plastic (Tim Mee's parent company) around 1978, they were also branded as 'STAR PATROL with X-WING ROCKET' and 'OUTER SPACE FIGHTERS'. 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 Team's triumphant return to production, the manufacturer has restored the vintage 'Tim Mee Toys' logo that hasn't been seen on the shelves for decades. 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!

I was really excited to see the Galaxy Laser Team on Amazon because these appear to be reissues of some little plastic figures that I owned in the mid 1980's. These are simple plastic figures, not unlike the traditional army men, but they appear to be a mish/mash of traditional spacemen, aliens, robots, some fighter jets, and a Darth Vader look alike. I remember fondly playing with these figures as a kid (I kept all my plastic army men type figures in a red "Tyco bricks" bucket) and sending them on various adventures. I still have a few of my original guys floating around somewhere and when I find them, I'll be sure they team up with their newer counterparts.

The figures are exactly the same sculpts as the original toys but now come molded in gray and black plastic (my originals came in black, white, neon pink, and neon green). The set comes with 48 figures and 2 two-piece jets. Every figure comes in both gray and black. Here's a brief run-down of the figures included:

"Turtle-lobster" alien- This is a tall alien that appears to have a turtle shell stomach and lobster claws. These were typically the hench-men for the bad guys.

"Space-sasquatch" alien- This guy looks like a less friendly Chewbacca (maybe a blend between Chewbacca and Bossk). He's wielding a large rifle and was usually the right hand man of the main villain.

"Space hero"- A regular guy wearing a helmet and pointing a blaster, reminiscent of so many classic space hero like Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, and Luke Skywalker. This guy was usually the hero of the adventures.

"Robot"- A little guy that looks like a rectangular R2-D2. He's your basic droid sidekick.

"Space villain"- A Darth Vader lookalike wielding a laser sword, this guy was always the main villain.

I had these figures back in the 1970s, but I never knew much about them. When I read on the Secret Fun Spot blog that they had been reissued, I had to buy a set. I was not disappointed! Though the color selection is limited compared to the older figures, no detailing has been sacrificed. These are well-made toys in the finest tradition of green army men. If you're looking at them and thinking they'd be cool, go for it! You will love them!

I had these in the early 80s, albeit in more colors (pink, green, white and blue), and loved them as a kid. I had a few originals scattered around which my six-year-old son would play with from time to time, but now he can appreciate the full line of figures thanks to this brilliant reissue. The figures are sturdy and the molds are fantastic, so kudos for restoring the original tooling. Side by side with my originals, I can't see any real differences (other than my old ones being scratched or broken that is). If you loved these as a kid, you will certainly enjoy these. Not sure how today's kids will appreciate such basic figures (my son is unique in his appreciation for the old toys his Dad played with at his age), but it is certainly worth grabbing a bag for Easter baskets or stocking stuffers (that is how mine always arrived). A great, simple old toy that most of us took for granted until we lost our old ones. Nice to see they still make toys in America too, so support your local manufacturers. Would love to see a few more runs in other colors to compliment these. Great set.

I just got these for my 3 year old son. We tried to go to the store for "army men"...you know the cheap molded plastic green guys. After an unsuccessful trip to the store (where I guess they don't sell toys anymore unless they come with some branded Disney or other characters) I found these on Amazon and thought..."awesome just like I remember as a kid". Anyways they came in what must have been a reprint of the original packaging for those of us that wanted some nostalgia. The quality was very very good compared to what you might find from the cheap "bucket-o-army men" I was looking for at the store. However, all that being said is that my son absolutely loves these things and has been carrying them with him steady for a week so far.

I had a set of the Tim Mee Laser Team Force when I was a kid. The characters are so familiar yet odd that they instantly overshadowed the squads of army men scattered about my playroom. I was overjoyed to see that they were reissued complete in a plastic bag with a label, just as they were sold back in the day. Highly recommend!

These great non-posable space figures are back in production after their heyday in the early 80s. Back then, they also came packaged under the name "Star Patrol". They're equal in sculpt quality to little green army men and just plain fun! They were originally meant to be quasi-rip-offs of Star Wars characters, but their retro designs are beyond kitsch now and they really do have a lot of personality. These were cheap knock-offs to Star Wars figures that have a lot of sandbox-playability. These days, they're pulling guard duty on my desk.

Some data on the new set:
--Includes 8 characters (2 each; 1 grey, 1 black) and one x-wing looking spaceship* (2 each; 1 grey, 1 black)
--All characters are about 2" tall
--*The spaceships are about 3" long and come unassembled as top and bottom pieces that can be swapped to make monochromatic or two-tone variations - they look like traditional US F-16 fighter jets with spread apart "x-wings" like the iconic ships from Star Wars
--Made of firmer/harder plastic than the old sets (I have a few older figures still and they're a bit softer)
--Figures are in scale with 90% of the generic green army men figures you see everywhere

I've taken some guesses as to the Star Wars/sci-fi equivalents their likenesses are meant to parallel:
--Alien space yeti with antenna - Chewbacca from Star Wars
--Helmeted spaceman with raygun - Buck Rogers of the 30s and 40s
--Woman with computer - Lt. Uhura from the original Star Trek
--Square, 2-legged robot - R2-D2 from Star Wars
--Helmeted warlord with space sword - Darth Vader from Star Wars
--Alien space turtle - No clue, he's just a weird one (Godzilla's pal Gamera maybe?)
--Two generic Apollo-era astronauts, one carrying an oxygen tank and hose (I think of him more of a "space janitor" with vacuum cleaner), the other a tape recorder or tricorder device.

Great fun for a few bucks!
