#6344 SPACE POWER SUIT
Copyright 1968--first year available 1969

The Space Power suit provided a portable power environment for planet work. It sported a protective transparent "blue" vista dome with a micro - electron control console. This device molded in "white" plastic would house one astronaut that would operate the remotely controlled power claw and telescoping hammer.

Operated by two "yellow" bellows that when squeezed and released would operate the hammer and claw. This contraption is great for breaking up rocks and retrieving samples. Could also be used to tunnel under the surface. A pair of gravity boosters also molded in "white" plastic, attach to the astronauts boots. Keeping him on his feet as he works. Comes with decals for the control panel and environment controls.

PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
8 1/2" x 12" card shows an early Sgt. Storm collecting rock samples with the suit.

The telescoping part of the power hammer is actually the same thing used as projectiles for the Gamma Ray Gard Gun. The "golden" mylar like springy cone shaped projectiles.
