With the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing upon us, I’ve been musing about the moon and the space toys I had as a boy.
No. 1 favorite was Major Matt Mason, the astronaut figure (OK, doll). I also had his pals Sgt. Storm, Capt. Lazer and Callisto, the alien with the green transparent head.
And, based on perusing the excellent Major Matt Mason website The Space Station and ransacking the brain in my non-transparent head, I owned more MMM merchandise than I’d have thought.
I had the Talking Command Console, the Moon Suit, the Jet Propulsion Pack, the Space Sled, the Space Bubble pulled by the Unitred Space Hauler, the Cat Trac, the Space Crawler and the deadly Firebolt Space Cannon. I was fully accessorized. (Although I never had the Lunar Base Command Set.)
Anyone else ever play with these or other space toys?
