I bought this book on ebay from the author and I am very happy with it. It is loaded with pictures of each space toy and has nice text. Some toys are shown in their original package. Best book I have bought in a long while.

...than this "Time Machine" that Mr. Gillam has produced. He left no stone unturned. Covered ALL details and variations very thoroughly. I discovered 3 OUTER SPACE MEN in my attic and a Scorpio in my basement. When I was looking for a reference guide to these 60's Spacemen, I coincidentally saw "SPACE TOYS OF THE 60's" on EBay. I said it, you'll say it: "That's how I would have done it!"

Space Toys of the 60s is a great book with loads of photos! If you are a collector of Major Matt Mason, Zeroids, or Colorforms Aliens, then this book is a must for you. Plenty of detail describes variations among the different items (Did you know that Calisto had both short and long boots?), a great help for discriminating collectors. Even if you aren't a collector, but just want to remember the fun you had playing with these toys when you were younger, this book is the ticket to memory lane. I love it (and I wish I still had all of those toys!). Thanks for the memories, James!

What a wonderful trip back in time to visit with my favorite childhood toys. This is a must have reference book for anyone collecting or having intererst in these toys. The amount of information it contains for such a low price makes it an absolute steal. If you had any of these toys (Zeroids, Matt Mason, Colorforms Aliens) do yourself a favor and get this book. It's sure fun to go back. Thanks Jim.

If you have any interest in Zeroids, Matt Mason, or Colorform Aliens you have to get this book. A wonderful reference book for those amazing toys from my childhood that no collector should be without. It is hard to believe you can get so much information for such a low price. Overall a wonderful job by Jim and a great trip back to those wonderful days of my youth. Thanks

This book provides a much-needed reference for collectors of '60s and '70s -era space toys such as Zeroids and Major Matt Mason. Even non-collectors will enjoy this book, which has many color photos of these toys, their packages and advertisements.

You betcha, James's book is a must have for sci-fi and space toy collectors and baby boomers alike. Crammed with piccies of Captain Laser, Callisto, Scorpio, Or, Zeroids and those fantastic Outerspacemen ( Orbitron is my personal fave), this shares centre stage on my bookshelf with Bill Bruegman's Toys of the Sixties. Gotta have it.Well done Mr.Gillam.

I got this WONDERFUL book today and could not put it down. Just terrific. It was an absolute joy to reminisce on these old toys and I really enjoyed the section on Colorforms Aliens which detailed the never-released 2nd wave COMPLETE with photos! Likewise the rare and unreleased Matt Mason stuff was fabulous! If you loved these toys as a kid - you owe it to yourself to buy this book.
