Dan Dare Figures now on sale

ddflightsuit.jpgTermight Replicas has started taking pre-orders for the new Dan Dare 1:6 Scale Action Figure.

The first in a series created by Day2Day Trading, the figure comes with detachable hands, helmet, boots and ‘Paralysing Pistol’ (which, we gather, sadly has been disabled, so no using it on noisy neighbours or your kids).

A second figure with Dan wearing his green uniform is also in pre-production. Both figures are based on concept art by Chris Weston, which stay true to Frank Hampson’s original designs.

The figures cost £99.95 each, and if bought from Termight Replicas will include a free full-sized Spacefleet cap badge.
