Airfix 1981 54mm Space Warriors Samurai Robots?

Airfix’s very odd 54mm Space Warriors set from 1981 has this Samurai inspired robot figure. First blue based one painted by me as a youngster in 1981, the rest finally painted last weekend!

Complete with ‘Message from Space’ (the Japanese Star Wars) and Kurosawa Samurai movie inspiration (just like George Lucas then!)

  1. Hello Chris
    They weren’t my favourite Space Warriors pose as a child, but as a group they work well enough. I’m sure their unstoppable stompiness and armour values can be varied from game to game, depending on how much laser fodder is needed.
