This was another
vinyl and plastic carry case that had a cardboard insert showing Major Matt Mason standing
in the window of the locker. Like the spaceship carry case, this locker was not packaged
in a box. It had a tag fastened to it's carry handle with a picture of it and some of the
equipment you could store inside.
The front of the case displays a picture that is the
same scene as the front of the Space Crawler box. The backside has two pictures, the
larger of the two is almost identical to the picture on the reconojet card, but before the
astronaut raises his visor. The other is from the Space shelter card pak. These three
pictures are not photographs, they look more like paintings.
The Satellite locker was unpackaged, it just had a tag attached to it's handle. Locker
itself is 12" x 7 1/2" x 3 1/4".

The cardboard insert picturing Major Matt Mason has two variations. Photos and description
This case is constructed of vinyl with vacuum-formed end panels attached by rivets. There
are three compartments in which to store the astronauts and their belongings. The two
vacuum-formed end panels are identical, looking sort of like a small spacecraft or oxygen
and fuel cells. Like most of the other vacuum-formed accessories, such as the rocket ship
case, these end panels are most often found cracked and broken. Sometimes even missing.
The cardboard insert of Matt is most always gone. This is probably the most common of the
Special thanks to Dave Bryant who provided the photo
of the locker's tag!
