Toy Gun, Arresting Ray Pistol, Flash Gordon

     

This Flash Gordon Arresting Ray Pistol toy issued by American toymaker Louis Marx & Co. beginning in 1952 was made using the same design as an earlier, 1930s, Flash Gordon toy gun also produced by Marx. Updating the graphics on the lithography allowed the toy maker to update the toy at little additional cost.

Michael O'Harro gave this toy to the National Collection in 1997, along with a large collection of space science fiction objects.
