This very rare and very collectable toy by Mattel is for the serious collector.

Made during the 60's space race and prior to the 1969 moon landing.  This rare to find action figure is of Major Matt Mason himself and includes the authentic space equipment adapted from the official NASA space program.  It includes the "Space Helmet", "Jet Propulsion Pak" and "Space Sled and Handle".

I have paper-clipped the pack together as sticky tape would ruin it -  all the pieces are there including the original card (with WH Smith price sticker!) and plastic bubble. Minimal wear on the card bearing in mind its age.

This version of Major Mason is one of the earlier model with the original white space suit with blue straps and red dots on the arms.  The paint on Major Mason is in good condition (which is very rare as it usually peeled off like skin), but the inner wire in one arm and one leg is broken inside.  The rope on the Space Pak is all there including hook but the sled has some very minor decal wear.

Otherwise, a fantastic, rare and collectable toy and piece of space history!
