They were send away gifts from a Kellogg's Cornflakes promotion circa 1986, although I was sure it was earlier than that...
The sets are not complete, I don't have original instructions or boxes (or bags as they were supplied iirc).
This Kellogg's box back was an internet find and I have pieced together each model from that, so they might not be correct.
I do remember playing with these. The interesting thing is the holes in the studs and the pegs on some parts that allow for positioning in different ways. Overall, I don't think it's a great method... but I can appreciate that if these were your first building blocks you'd have fondness for this approach.
The condition is pretty good overall I think. A bit of rubbing on the chrome elements.
I only have the one spaceman who is missing his arms... I have no idea what happened to the others - probably blasted to pieces by the valiant Classic Spacemen of #6971 Inter-Galactic Command Base.Here are one set of instructions I found on an ebay auction... if anyone has scans of these I'd really appreciate seeing them, possibly to add to appeal of this for any eventual owner too - if that was cool?
