Astronaut : Original Accessories and Known Repros
Loose Astronaut


The Astronaut sports a shorter version of the mego combat boot. This boot is also found in the Action Jackson Navy set, and on some of the characters in the Monsters line. Classic TV Toys has reproduced the boot. The reproduction is a touch smaller and has more flashing evident. The reproductions are unmarked. CTVT also makes a full lenth combat boot (see Soldier Ape) and this boot can be cut down to make an almost factory reproduction of the Astronaut boot. The full size combat boot reproduction is a very soft rubbery material when compared with the original and is also unmarked.


The Astronaut wears a white plastic belt similar to Robin's plastic belt. Reproductions are available from DM and CTVT. Both reproductions were made from the Robin belt, but in white. The common version of the original Astronaut belt (pictured) is shorter than the Robin belt, so the reproductions are longer than most originals. Once the Astronaut was released on a T2 body, the belt was lengthened to the same length as the plastic Robin belt (not pictured). This version is not as common. The Doc Mego reproduction belt has a slightly duller texture than the original and is marked DM on the backside. The CTVT has a sharper texture than the original and is marked CTV in the inside.



The Astronaut wears a gray helmet with a blue transparent visor that slides up and down. It has a white elastic string to hold it on the head around the neck. This is the same helmet found in the Action Jackson Airforce set, and has not been factory reproduced.


The Astronaut's head was also used for Kit Willer from the Tex Willer line. The paintjob on Kit is a little different. Kit has darker brown hair, shorter sideburns, and black eyes. The Astronaut has lighter brown hair and blue eyes. CTVT reproduced the head for their Willer line, but used the longer painted sideburns and blue eyes of the Astronaut, but the darker brown hair of Kit Willer. The reproduction is unmarked.
