Johnny Astro Replications – The Entire Toy
This site will be offering replication Johnny Astros – the entire toy – from time to time. In some cases these replications will be “hybrid” in nature, that is they will be made from both original parts and replication parts. In each case, the replication parts will be identified. These toys are fully functional and will be similar in nature to those constructed on our Boy Scout Project back in 2005.
The video – “Johnny Astro II – A Tribute to Sol Friedman” on this web site shows and tells about our Boy Scout Troop Project that ran from 2004 to 2005. During that time, a group of young boy scouts were taught the skills necessary to mold plastics and manufacture their very own working replication Johnny Astro Toys. This video shows all of that activity, in addition to work currently being done on new Johnny Astro replications. The video is intended as a tribute to the prolific toy inventor Sol Friedman, the inventor of Johnny Astro and many other great toys. Replication toys are currently being worked on – do you think you might want one? If so, contact the AEP site for additional details.
