McDonald's Space Raider Happy Meal Toys

(L to R) DARD, HORTA, ZAMA, and BRAK. The ship's name is KRYGO 5.

How many people remember these guys? I had all of these when I was a kid back in the late 1970s. There were four aliens and four ships and were made by a company called Diener Ind., as noted on the back of each figure. Well, a couple years ago while at an antique mall in Springfield, Missouri, I came across this lot for $2. I couldn't pass them up. These guys are about 2" tall. The texture is a little softer than those erasers we used to have as kids in our school boxes. Diener also made other lines made of a different type of rubber. I'll post some pictures of those figures sometime in the future.

I remember ALWAYS wanting to go to McDonald's to try and get a new figure in a different color. They came in orange, pink, yellow, blue, and green. My favorite, for whatever reason was HORTA. That name always stuck with me. I remember pulling these out of the Happy Meal box and having to basically brush all the salt and scrub all the grease off of them from the fries. And, having shag carpets, these guys got real fuzzy and dirty really really fast. I'm just glad I found these in such excellent condition. And, with all the different color combinations, this gives me just something else to keep a look out for at garage sales, flea markets, etc.

The other day while surfing the web, I stumbled upon The M.U.S.C.L.E. Guild where you can find out more information about these figures.

I just found some other sites with pics and info about these and other erasers from the same manufacturer.

I had forgotten about the cars until I found out Diener Ind. became a subsidiary of Wincraft and started looking around!

I had the jets too! Man! I wish I had saved these!

If you use the search bar with the pulldown menu, you will find "space robots" and all the others. Unfortunately, I can't find the movie monsters.

I share a love/hate relationship with digital memory because of the way prices are always,and I domean always falling. I hate buying SD Cards for my R4 / R4i at (what seems to be) a crazy bargain price only to see it become a whole lot cheaper a few months later.
