New to the forum so thought I'd say hello first. This is a great forum, very informative so thought I'd join in.
I'm looking to collect all the vintage space Lego boxed (though not sealed) from the 70's/80's, up to the point where they changed the spacemen from one colour to the Futuron colour scheme (though I do have the monorail!)
Am doing ok so far. I think there's around 83 possible sets out of which I have 62.
Does anyone know anything about sets 0012-0015, the small spacemen sets? Don't believe I've ever seen these anywhere!
Also sets 1526...Which potentially is not possible to get from what research I have done, and sets 1968 and 1593. Are these really super rare/expensive?
Any info on these would be greatly appreciated.

#1526 was never made
#1968 was a promotional set available only in certain stores
#1593 was not actually a set, but instructions to make a model from 2 others
0012-0015 were available only in Canada, I believe, and thus like hen's teeth.
Many thanks or the info.
I take sets 0012-15 are expensive and next to impossible to buy? Not a huge problem with those, as my toy collecting focus (mainly vintage star wars toys 70's/80's) is only UK based so if they are Canadian I could knock them off the wants list.
I guess I can also knock 1526 off as well.
Doesn't 1593 still come in its own box though?
What sort of price might I be looking at for 1593 and 1968 boxed?
Thanks again for the info. It is a lofty goal, but I'm only left with 21 to get and your info has ready suggested I could knock 5 off the wants list!
Would be a fantastic start to your vintage space collection. almost tempted myself.
#1593 I believe are made from #6929 and #6880, and the instructions were from some retailer as part of an offer (maybe with both of those sets included)
I have a #1593 printed copy, as I'm sure other have and just BL the set.
Thanks for the links. I am only looking for boxed stuff though. That does however give me an idea on the kind of prices I'm likely to be paying.
I have found a boxed 1968 for £275...which is somewhat tempting. Possibly the rarer of the two pieces it seems.
