A U.S. variant of the Space Orbit coin set was also issued with Gordon's Potato Chips and Krun-Chee Corn Chips. To avoid offending delicate American sensibilities, the coins of Commie Soviets Yuri Gagarin, Gherman Titov and Nikita Kruschev were replaced with coins bearing less threatening images. Here is a scan of a sheet of my Gordon's ones:



As you can see, John Kennedy was deemed a suitable image albeit Kruschev was not. Here's a scan of a sheet of my Krun-Chee Corn Chip coins:

Mono...is the little green guy totin' a ray gun rifle?


Yes, he is.

Hepcat, nice coins.

Here's the card to a Bagatelle Flash gordon game that I've had since i was a kid. It's all of it that I have left. I never attached it to the game for some reason.

I recall the Pez display in Grants as a kid, early 70s. Had to have been a whole endcap or 4 ft section, right next to the chocolate cigarettes, LOL

Man, I can still see the Grants in downtown Waterbury like it was yesterday.........especially the basement toy dept.!!

Yep, here you'd walk past the GIANT aquarium fish section (and probably Creature Penn Plax) to get to the toys. Funny how Grants and K-Mart in same center both had diners attatched.

I don't remember who made it and  the card I have doesn't have any toy company name on it.

I also have this Flash Gordon pistol. And I have some Flash Gordon candy boxes, I just have to find the photo.

For me it's a tossup between the ones at Kresge and Woolworth. One of each faced each other on Dundas Street in downtown London up until sometime in the early 1990's. A Metropolitan a very few doors to the west of the Kresge store and a Zeller's just across Richmond Street to the east  completed the picture. My mother used to haunt these five-and-dimes and I would typically be in tow.  I always hoped that my mother would treat me to a bowl of ice cream or something at those lunch counters after a long afternoon of being dragged about long aisles.

My introduction to such toy classics as Great Garloo and the Aurora monster model kits also occurred as Kresge. I really miss those stores and their lunch counters. You never know what you've got till it's gone.

Yes! That's the one. Wish I had the rest of it, I don't know what happened to it. Thanks for the pic.
