#6378 TALKING MAJOR MATT MASON WITH XRG - 1 REENTRY GLIDER
Copyright 1969--first year available 1970

Often referred to as the "Talking Flying Major Matt Mason", this set came with the last two items made for the toyline. The Reentry Glider and the talking back pak. Including Major Matt Mason himself.

The box sports new colorful 1969 / 1970 graphics picturing an artists' rendition of the glider and Matt Mason attached to the talking back pak and visible behind a cellophane window. Just as he appears in #6362 Talking Major Matt Mason.

For many years other collectors and myself thought that this could be one of the rarer boxed items. In the last two years there have been many finds of these boxes, several of which were old store stock! I don't mean there's a plentiful supply of these, they are still harder to find than most other boxed pieces. They just aren't hard to come by as they seemed to be a while back.
