    This is the Playing Mantis reissue from the 1990s. It's a great art deco retro style outfit. Unlike GI Joe the visor is molded onto the helmet.
    In the third photo Flash is joined by his friend Action Boy in his space suit (vintage Ideal form 1968) and his foe Ming the Merciless (another Playing Mantis set).
    Action Boy and Ming will have their own posts eventually.

      WICKED!!! I've never read Flash Gorden but it looks like a pretty cool comic series, especially when it has dinosaurs (that is not a lie). Anyway this outfit is very cool, but also confusing seeing how Flash is barely seen with an astronaut outfit and is usually in a red shirt. Anyway sorry for being a fusspot but these are very cool especially with Ming the Merciless.
