#6333 DOUG DAVIS SPACE SCIENTIST-RADIOLOGIST-WITH CAT TRAC
Copyright 1968--first year available 1969

The last of Major Matt Mason's buddies joins the group. In his "yellow" painted spacesuit, Doug Davis sits atop a "red" cat trac in the usual greeting pose as the others. The background here is a "green" tinted lunarscape with a space station and other astronauts pictured.

PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
5" x 8" hole-punched blister card.

DEALER CATALOG SPECS:
Each in a standard pack of 1 doz. Wt: 4 1/2 lbs. Also included later in 2 different assortment packs #A6334 and #A6335. Check these out under their own listing on our stock number list.

VARIATIONS:
Like Jeff Long there are color variations on Doug. Sometimes he appears to be painted in a "yellow / orange" color, while others are more "yellow". He also sports the large copyright date on his backside.

COMMENTS:
Being that Doug was produced during the last half of the Major Matt Mason toyline, makes him more scarce than Matt and Storm. But not as scarce as Jeff Long, though sold during the same time, there were less of him made.

ALSO INCLUDED IN:
Doug Davis also was packaged in these other sets.

#6337 Space Mission Team
#6355 Space Discovery Set.

Also as one of the astronauts sold through space centers in the late 60's and early 70's. Each in a plain window box designated Mattel Astronaut, #8874.
