Robot, Rocketship, and Spacemen

Wherever you go keep an eye out for hobby stuff.
This very cool, retro, rocketship is from Tractor Supply.
It's a dog toy.  Maybe a dog toy for Astro, but my dog is going to do without it.
It has a great 1930s feel to it.
It's in full color, no painting nor assembly needed.
It's a dog toy so it is super durable.
This is one of my chocolate candy mold robots.  I think they go well together.
These are some cheapo knock off US Marines and British Paratroopers, copies of the Airfix 1/32nd scale figures but in 1/72nd scale.  They lack any real detail so the weapons are generic and the helmets are were the US M1.  I replaced their heads with map pins, added upside down flamethrower tanks, and added a little wire antenna and now they are spacemen.
Green American spacemen with their support robot and their rocketship.  The rocketship is only $10 and they seem to be plentiful.
