This was the first of four projectile firing defensive implements. A formidable defense weapon against any odds! Launches Mighty Rockets by remote control! Pierces the deepest reaches of darkest space! Immediate or distant remote control firing!

Molded in "silver/gray" plastic and a "red" rocket projectile, when the rocket was launched it would set off a single cap firing lode on impact! Of course the caps were none other than Mattel's "Greenie Stickem Caps" available at your favorite toy store. The rocket would soar across the lunarscape to meet it's target. An asteroid? An alien? Mom's china cabinet?!! Whew!! That was close!

This carded accessory pak also came with a pair of walkie talkies, a knife and sheath with a belt identical to the jet propulsion pak, only shorter. And last the roto-jet gun, a long chrome plated rifle with black and red painted accents. Kinda like the ones Professor Robinson and Major Don West had on "LIS".

Decals were supplied to mark the equipment, all you needed was the men to defend your base.

Comments: This toy is very fragile and easily broken. There are most always small pieces broken off of the base. However, usually this does not impair the firing capabilities.

Each punched blister card is 8 1/2" x 12" In standard pack of 1 doz. Wt. 3lbs. per case.


The Rocket Launch Pak accessories were also available in
#6327 The Astro Trac Missile Convoy Set.
