Dan Dare is a big character overseas, and while he did make a foray into ‘merican territory through the Virgin Comics line, many may not give a flip that the space hero is getting the action figure treatment .  Day2day Trading is creating the retro figure based on designs by Chris Weston.  The figure should be available in March/April of 2010.

    The original Dan Dare is amazing and the art was outstanding especially considering what other people were doing for the time. Here’s some linkage goodness http://www.dandare.org/

    Here’s a less than interesting fact….Dan Dare was created in my home time of Southport in the North-west of England.
    Cool figure, like the fact that they’ve gone for the original designs, might have to purchase one :-)
