Tin Toy Arcade

Space Patrol Commander 1950


A retro flying saucer, Tin Toy Arcade’s Space Patrol Commander 1950 throws back to the futuristic imaginations of ’50s Japan. The tin toy winds up and scuttles on its own, and also tacks course when it bumps into obstacles. There’s a charm to the vintage-inspired object and the design flourishes make an old concept relevant again, but most importantly: it’s fun to watch it rove around.
