Archer Space Woman

If you've read this blog for awhile, you'll know that I have a thing for Archer Space Men, absolutely fantastic little 4 inch plastic figures sold in dime stores in the 1950s. If you haven't been reading this blog for awhile, you can catch up on the Archer Space Man posts by clicking here and here and here.

Anyway, the Archer Space Men had a couple of female companions, the Archer Space Women. They're rather scarce today: it appears the women weren't manufactured in nearly the same amounts as the men, probably on the assumption that they wouldn't be as popular with the target audience of little boys. I've kept an eye out for one for several years, but had nary a sighting until this one turned up at a recent toy show. Isn't she just fabulous?!

The Space Woman is on the left, wearing what appears to be a micro-mini skirt.


  1. How cool is that! It looks as though she's quite content with the life of a space woman. The space man seems a little miffed about something. Must be chore day.

  2. Maybe she is forcing the space man to accompany her to the Intergalctic Shopping Mall. He's got the grim, stoic look of the men I saw waiting for their wives outside the Kohl's dressing rooms yesterday.
