Galaxy Laser Team: 2012 reissue

What: When I first wrote about Galaxy Laser Team plastic space figures here just a couple months ago, I had no idea that versions of the toys were going to be available to buy new right now in 2012. But it's true--an online retailer, VictoryBuy, has worked with the current owners of Tim Mee Toys to manufacture a small production of the figures using the original molds. So Galaxy Laser Team figures are officially back on the market! All the original figures are there, including the gun-wielding space hero, Darth Vader-esque villain, the little robot, the space woman with her trusty console, the Chewbacca-like guy, the two astronauts, and of course, the infamous turtle-crab alien. Also included are two starships. As with previous editions, this new set includes black figures, but this time instead of white, green and pink, the other color included is light gray. This gives the set a very cool, retro sci-fi feel. The bag comes packaged as a set of 48 figures and 2 ships with a header card featuring some very cool artwork of the various characters. I'd recommend picking up a set whether or not you already have some of the older versions. It's very cool to see these available again!

When: 2012

Where: Sold on Get them here.

Who: Manufactured by Tim Mee and sold by VictoryBuy.


  1. Boo, Amazon won't ship these guys out to England :( I guess I'll have to hunt on Ebay or the like.

    Great blog by-the-way.

    1. Thanks for the kind words, Wil! Hope you're able to get a set of these.

  2. If Wil (or anyone) is having trouble getting the figures through Amazon, VictoryBuy also has a website. Their storefront is directly through Amazon, so you'd need to contact Jeff (the owner) directly via the "Contact Us" link. I would bet he would make an effort to work something out with you.

    Jeff has also started a Facebook page for Galaxy Laser Team that's a lot of fun.

  3. Great to see those come back from the far reaches of space!

    I like how the build upon the old line and offer a new color to still appeal to guys like us you have the originals. I'm lying; I'm still mIssing a box robot, space vixen and CHewbacca guys, so here's my chance!
