The Star Mite Collection

I collected all these as a kid and just recently found them again in an old box. They are solid toys. I have all of them in the original boxes and in excellent condition. They must have had more than one group. When I look at the back of all my boxes, they show the following die cast toys:

Valcan 1
Blue Silver (which looks exactly like "Golden Saucer" so it was renamed one way or the other at some point)
Dozer Bucketer
Comander Shovel
Rock Cutter
Brain 3
Jeek Tunneln
Power Craneger

I have been unable to find any information about these anywhere else. I would be interested to know how many of them there were. I have the 8 listed above but when I look at the back of the box on this web site ( there are at least 7 more.

Golden Saucer

These are my vintage grails. I have a beat up Golden Saucer and it is the same mold as the Blue Silver, but is painted Gold with orangey yellow missle doors. On the bottom it has black plastic instead of orange. It seems the Star Mites versions are harder to come by...
