Original prop Captain Astro doll used in the US version of `Queer as Folk' (2000 - 2005,) It was created specifically for the shrine that Michael builds to his hero, Captain Astro, in his comic book store. The costume and mask of Astro was lovingly sewn by hand by the wardrobe department, and put on the body of an unnamed action figure that was purchased by the props department (as is common with props of this type). I'm not sure who his alter-ego is, but I think it may have been a Batman. Captain Astro stands about 11" tall, and his plastic arms, legs and body are fully articulated. He comes complete with his one-piece costume, including fully lined cape, and his black rubber superhero boots. (original auction blurb.)
This was the only doll produced for the show, and was purchased from the show's props master, who lovingly preserved Captain Astro after the series ended.
Have also included a couple of original continuity polariods from the set of the show, including Michael and `real' Captain Astro.
