#6379 MAJOR MATT MASON SPACE POWER EQUIPMENT SET
Copyright 1969--first year available 1970

Another fine example of 1970 packaging, this set comes with Major Matt Mason strapped atop his "orange" Cat Trac waving at us from behind a cellophane window at the lower left of the box front. Just as he appears on his regular individual Cat Trac card #6318.

Hidden in the other compartment behind nice graphics of the same are the Space Power Suit and the Supernaut Power Limbs. This is a truly nice display piece in old store stock condition, and quite hard to find in any condition.

PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
Box displays Matt on Cat Trac behind cellophane window and the Supernaut Power Limbs and Space Power Suit are colorful illustrations on the front of the box. Everything is colorfully illustrated on the back of the box. Package sports the new for 1970, Mattel buzz-saw logo with just MATTEL written across it. "white" letters on a "red" buzz-saw.

DEALER CATALOG SPECS:
Standard pack 1/2 doz. Wt: 6 lbs.

None

COMMENTS:
My box, as shown in the photo is old store stock that came from "Montgomery Wards". I regret that earlier I successfully removed the old "Wards" price sticker. Today I look at these as nostalgia, if the price sticker does not hide some vital graphics, just leave it. A lot of times these cannot be removed without lifting or tearing the box anyway.
