Midgetoy's "Buck Rogers" Diecast Spaceship (c.1947)

Midgetoy, a Rockford, Il. company, started producing these dime store 3 1/2 inch diecast wonders in 1947. This example has no cut windows on the front, and I've seen examples of the spaceship with open windows produced in 1954. They came in three colors, red, blue and silver. You can find more information on Midgetoy here.


  1. Hello, can you tell me please if the Midgetoy was made from lead or another metal? I cannot find the answer on the internet. Thank you!

  2. It is made of some metal, but doesn't seem to be made of lead. Wish I could be more specific, but am unable to positively identify the metal. Good luck!
