This was a unique piece of equipment that would make astronauts working giants! Authentic effort booster conserves energy. Adjustable space stilts. Remote control power scoop and grip jaws. Has a built - in backpack with rotating tow hook, winch and oxygen supply. Molded in a "yellow" plastic these powerful tools could move tons.

Often compared to the contraption Ripley used in 1980's Aliens movie. This of course was designed long before that. Comes with colorful decals to mark it's designation in the field.

The 8 1/2" x 12" hole-punched blister card carries three photos of Sgt. Storm working with the limbs in various positions. Again an earlier version of Storm is used with "blue" belts and "white" cuffs.

Each in standard packs of 1 doz. Wt: 4 lbs. Also available on card in Assortment pak #A6348 and in the 9" x 6 3/8" x 13 1/4" chip box in standard pack of 1 doz. Wt: 5 lbs. And in the chip boxes in yet another Assortment pak #A6338 Wt: 7 lbs.

This is another of four accessory cards that were later repackaged into small chip boxes with new photos. This time Major Matt Mason is shown operating the power limbs.

The "yellow" power Limbs are fairly common, but are sometimes missing the winch hook, or are broken where the appendages attach.

The Supernaut power limbs were also available in #6379 Major Matt Mason Super Power Equipment Set.
