Lithographed red tinflying saucer with a blue center. Pilot under a clear plastic dome and spark windows Action: Friction flywheel with sparks TN A combination of pilot under central dome, the rear spark windows, the two "headlights" and set of tail fins are classic design elements taken up by other Japanese companies in the early and mid sixties. Nomura saucers seem to have rather thin fragile domes compared to those made by other toy companies and they do crack easily. The astronaut at the helm has an arguably oriental look to him. The Martian Flying Saucer with Sparks (aka Red Man From Space) shares the same body pressing and there were a couple of knock-offs made by the toy company Ne-Kur in the 1970's. An Indian version is also known. Pictured in the 1962 catalog of the 1st Japan International Toy Fair.
