mattel matt mason space crawler new n box old store

You are Bidding on a vintage matt mason new never used space craft with unapplied stickers and instructions.The box is slightly dusty and shows some signs of shelf wear,the cardboard inserts are in good condition!

(see pictures)!

What you see in the pictures is what you will get!If you have any questions feel free to contact me before you bid!

S&H is $20.00 for Canada and the USA and 37.00 for international !!(pick up is available and I combine shipping on multiple items but please inquire beforehand)

My Take:
There seems to be a lot of these OSS boxed Crawlers out there but this seems to be about the average price. I think that out of all the accessories the Crawler and Space Station are the most representative of the line, so it makes sense that every collector wants one of each.

My Take:
Nice that this one comes with two sticker sheets - my OSS version stickers all have spotting, which seems common to the Seeker. I've always thought this an ackward toy - anything that has an instruction manual that's more than 4 pages is to be avoided, in my opinion (from a Dad buying a toy for his child perspective). Neat toy but I wonder how many actually figured it out when they were kids? There seems to be a lot of OSS examples of this set.











RARE MATTEL 1969 MAJOR MATT MASON UNITRED SPACE HAULER


eBay Auction #250439629601
Ending Bid: $149.50
End Date: Jun-14-09 09:33:18 PDT

Description:
super vintage major matt mason unitred space hauler. amazing to find with original box. works great and even includes a fresh set of batteries. looks to have been seldom played with.has track top and trailer, plus info sheet and inner divides. box also in great shape. even includes the original christmas card from grandma. thanks for looking!

My Take:
I was taken aback a bit with the selling price - usualy a boxed Uni-Tred goes for about $100 so this is on the high side - it is the later box which is could be more difficult to find depending on where you live.



That's it for now! John
