They are incredibly well articulated for a toy of this age. My younger brother had a lot of these and the vehicles they fitted into. At the time, I was 15, and saw them as an ingenious modular toy. I look at them now, and see just how beautiful they actually are. I have recently started to collect the figures - here, in the UK, we only had a very few - four different coloured 'Time Travellers', and a guy in a sarcophagus called 'Pharoid', who is really cool. Other figures were shown on the backs of packs, which never made it over here, which was annoying, as, to a man, they're all fascinating. And now, 40 years later, I've got most of them. And, yes, they are toys far too good (and fragile) to be played with by children.
