Major Matt Mason

Christmas 1967. I was 11 years old. And under the tree that morning I found... none other than Major Matt Mason and his space station!!!

Major Matt Mason was an astronaut in a space suit. His space station stood a good two feet tall. And there were all sorts of neat accessories. Like the jet pack which you put on his back— it enabled him to fly through the air on a string. Or the space sled he rode around on. Or the gigantic heavy-duty moon suit, which looked more like deep-sea diving equipment. Or even the rocket launcher, which fired a cap-loaded missile.

There were tons of other Major Matt Mason items you could buy, but those were the ones I had. And now you can read all about the good Major on his collectors' website.
