Award-winning toy figure maker Day2Day Trading has just sent us these impressive shots of their new Dan Dare prototype figure, due for release next year (2010).
The Dare figure is just the start of a full Dan Dare range from Day2Day, also known for their Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers and Sinbad ranges.
The quality of their figures is impressive and we’re looking forward to seeing how the project develops.
