Mattel's Man in Space-Space Mission Team(1968) 5 boxes


Item number: 190486997126
Ended: Jan 04, 2011 20:48:39 PST
Winning Bid: US $80.00 BIN


Description:
Up for bid are 5 boxes of 1968 Mattel's Man in Space-Space Mission Team action figures. They are in unopened boxes. Cleaning out, my loss, your gain! Please email me with any questions. Sorry, no International shipping. Please pay within 3 days if you are the winning bidder. Good Luck!

My Take:As someone on one of the forums mentioned "While we were sleeping..." This phenomenal deal was posted in "Lost in Space" category under TV, Movie & Character Toys. Obviously the seller (who incidentally only has 21 feedbacks) didn't know what he had - in following weeks he started listing these - I believe most sold in the $1200 range (I'll post those I can find - many were purchased with an "Offer" prices).

MAJOR MATT MASON SUPERNAUGHT LIMBS


  
Item number: 160529591409
Ended: Jan 11, 2011 20:57:21 PST
Winning Bid: US $70.00

Description:MATT MASON SUPER NAUGHT LIMBS  ARE MINT UNDER THE BUBBLE CARD HAS A FEW  CREASES AND BENDS ,BUT ITEM IN MINT SHAPE SHIPPING TO CANADA AND USA $15

My Take:
I'm not sure if it was just a left-over from the feeding frenzy on Toby's auctions or what - the surprising thing here is the amount the carded item went for. Usually something this beat up sells in the $40 range.












MATT MASON TALKING COMMAND CONSOLE IN BOX DOES NOT TALK


Item number: 350428821045
Ended: Jan 12, 2011 19:45:14 PST
Winning Bid: US $77.00

Description:MATT MASON TALKING COMMAND CONSOLE IN ORIGINAL BOX BUT DOES NOT TALK. WHEN YOU PULL THE STRING IT JUST GOES IN FAST WITHOUT TALKING. THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT FIX TALKING MECHANISMS BUT I'LL LEAVE THAT TO THE NEXT OWNER. OTHERWISE IT IS COMPLETE WITH DIRECTIONS AND IN EXCELLENT SHAPE. NO RIPS OR TEARS IN THE VINYL JUST COULD USE A LITTLE CLEANING. THE BOX IS IN GOOD CONDITION WITH TYPICAL SHELF WEAR LIKE WRINKLES / DENTS. CALL IT A C7. US BUYER PAYS $14 PRIORITY SHIPPING / INSURANCE. OUTSIDE US PAYS $40 SHIPPING PRIORITY AIR WITH INSURANCE. I DO NOT SHIP TO COUNTRIES THAT DO NOT ALLOW INSURANCE. THANKS

My Take:
Decent winning bid price on this - even if the label is on upside-down (common) - it does have the harder-to-find directions and pretty much all of these can have the talking mechanism rebuilt.


Mattel's Sgt Storm on Cat Trac New in Box/Matt Mason's


Item number: 250752288082
Ended: Jan 14, 2011 11:15:10 PST
Winning Bid: US $416.00

Description:Sgt. Storm on his Cat Trac, still in the original package. 1967 Mattel. Package itself shows very little wear. Look at the picture closely, as this would be a good piece for a collector. Thank you. Pam
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On Jan-09-11 at 15:47:55 PST, seller added the following information:
I am getting many questions on Sgt. Storm and his condition. Look closely at the pictures. The plastic is perfect. There are no cracks, no holes, no smells. There is one spot at the top of the packaging where the Letters R and M from Sgt. Storm are. where there was once a label, but it has been removed. I started this auction at $9.99 so everyone would have a fair chance at buying it. This is collector grade, for collectors only. It is as very close to being perfect as the day it was hung on the store's shelf. They don't come along like this very often. You snooze, you lose. Pam :-)

Question & Answer Answered On
Q:  Is the plastic bubble over the figure still completely attached to its paper backing card or is it coming away from the card anywhere? Are there any holes or splits in the plastic bubble at all? It looks as though the bubble was crushed a little bit in your picture. Thanks. Jan-09-11
A:   Hi, the plastic is perfect and is attached to it's paper backing card. No holes, no splits. Perfect. Thank you. Pam

My Take:
Nice card on this Sgt Storm example.

Ended: Jan 17, 2011 20:43:07 PST

Description:For AUCTION: MATTEL MAJOR MATT MASON & CALLISTO LOT
3 day auction!

Triple-M is in fantastic shape. No broken wires. Solid with great paint.
Red dots, blue straps, and silver wrist and leg bands.
Perfect hair and blue eyes.
The only issue is a small loss of silver paint where the helmet joins.
Stamped on back: Mattel 1966.
An excellent MMM! Hard to believe he is 44 years old.

Callisto is in great shape with the exception of a broken wire in his left leg.
The wire doesn't poke through and you would not know it if you didn't twist the leg.
It allows the leg to twist if you try. He can stand though.
Nice colors and clean.
Stamped on back: Mattel 1968 Hong Kong.

The helmet is just OK, but not bad. It has some melts and sticker residue. The shield opens and closes fine.

The moon sled is in good shape, not perfect but nice.

All vintage, not reproduction.
I have had these since Christmas of 1968.

No reserve auction.
I accept PayPal.
Domestic shipping will be a flat $8.00. $12.00 to Canada and UK.
E-mail me with any questions.
Smoke-free environment.

My Take:
Of course the real prize here is the WRM with good wires. Also nice to get an original short-necked helmet.

Major Matt Mason Space Probe Pak 1967 Still Carded


Item number: 320644015386
Ended: Jan 23, 2011 18:00:08 PST

It comes with two remote control space probes, water shooting decontamination laser type rifle, binoculars and flare gun. Item is new never opened. This item was originally sold in Germany very rare.

My Take:
I was quite surprised at the winning bid on this one - this is probably the most ubiquitious carded MMM accessory - I've bought several for less than $20. The story is that 4 cases were found in an old toy store in Germany.



Major Matt Mason Action Figure SGT. Storm with Cat Trac


Item number: 320644050952
Ended: Jan 23, 2011 18:00:42 PST

Description:Mattel Toys Man in Space action figure SGT. Storm wearing his helmet sitting atop his white Cat Trac. This action figure is in great condition and comes with Helmet, Cat Trac and original packaging. No broken wires some paint is missing on backside.

My Take:
Not a bad deal on this carded - bubble is a bit yellow though. Storm appears to be one of the more difficult Cat Trac carded figures to find with MIB pricing above $400.

Mattel Major Matt Mason MAC Ball Cap / Hat - RARE !!!



Item number: 330520875380
Ended: Jan 25, 2011 20:15:15 PST
Winning Bid: US $259.70

Description:Up for bid: Authentic Mattel's Major Matt Mason MAC (Mattel Astrospace Center) Ball Cap in very good condition. The size is small (for kids). The outside doesn't show any significant wear. The colors on the logo are still vibrant. The inside fake leather band has some cracking due to age, as seen in photo.   The MAC was the official Matt Mason Club where a kid could become a member and receive a kit that contained membership goodies, including a coupon for ordering one of these hats. They are pretty scarce and do not show up on eBay often. If your working towards a complete Matt Mason collection, this hat is a must. As an added bonus, a reproduction MAC iron-on will be included.

It is truly a great piece from my personal collection. I've decided to thin the collection down, keeping only what I had as a kid.

Look closely and carefully at the photos. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Your satisfaction is important to me.

NOTE: The seller reserves the right to cancel any bid from any bidder who has questionable feed back or no feedback. Please respond to all emails sent from the seller.

Thank you and Good Luck!

My Take:
Another Toby Denham collection item. Considering the rarity of the MAC cap I'm always surprised that it doesn't sell for more (understand that the only way to get the cap is to first join the Mattel Astrospace Center Club, which came with a cap order-form.) - these are fairly rare, at least as rare as other MMM club items.

Winning Bid: US $189.50

Description:PLEASE READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION:

Up for bid: Mattel's Major Matt Mason SPACE STATION complete and in very good condition. The station is in very good played with condition. Decals are installed. I have had it assembled, and all pieces are present. The clear blue panels are some of the best I've seen. Very very few scuffs. They are nice, clear and shiny. There are two small flaws as noted in the accompanying photos. The chair back has a small melt where a MMM figure was left too long in contact causing a chemical reaction ... very common occurrence with these toys. The second flaw is one missing tab where one of the console legs attaches. This has no effect on assembly and cannot be seen. As for the box, it is solid and in good condition (grade C7.5 - C8). The colors are vivid. The closing tab is torn as seen in photo; however, it still closes and locks. The cardboard insert is a work of art!!! It is an exact reproduction of an original made on a computer controlled machine that makes cardboard boxes and packing materials. These were sold by a well known Matt Mason collector who was/is in the business of making such things. You CANNOT tell the difference between this insert and an original (except that the original will not be in as good condition.

It is truly a great piece from my personal collection. I've decided to thin the collection down, keeping only what I had as a kid.

Look closely and carefully at the photos. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Your satisfaction is important to me.

Major Matt Mason Space Mission Team Callisto MIB 1968



Item number: 190495116285
Ended: Jan 26, 2011 12:14:27 PST
Offer Price: 2,899.99 BIN or Best Offer
Sale Price: US $1,500.00

Description:Another outrageous warehouse find. A vintage 1968 Mattel Major Matt Mason Mission Space Team Mint in Factory sealed slightly creased box. This amazing find has rarely seen the light of day except for these photos. Bright vibrant colors with no tears, rips, or splits in box (as seen in photos). Almost gem mint, but as with most vintage mint toys, shows minor shelf wear on box. A truly spectacular example of this ultra-cool, ultra-rare MMM Space collectible. Any questions don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks for looking.

My Take:
I'm thinking that this was sold as an inferior box to those purchased in the group of 5 (see above).

Item number: 320646739265
Ended: Jan 29, 2011 18:00:36 PST
Winning Bid: US $301.00

Description:Mattel Toys Man in Space. Uni-Tred and Space Bubble. Two D batteries powered this toy. The Uni-Tred is a red chassis,white inner frame with black treads. It can hold two Major Matt Mason action figures one in front of the other. Included is a white  two piece yoke. The Bubble contains a gryro-seat that can hold and additional Major Matt Mason action figure. The gyro seat kept the astronaut upright while the bubble rolled behind. This toy has been opened but looks like it was never played with. It comes complete with original box, inner packaging and decals which were never applied to toy. Battery compartment has no rust and toy has been battery test and worked great. Box is a little dinged up but this toy is in just about New Condition.

My Take:
Very nice set and relatively hard to find. I think this was won at a very cheap price.






Major Matt Mason Star Seeker with Memory 1969



Item number: 320646307958

Winning Bid: US $179.28

Description:Mattel Toys Man in Space. Major Matt Mason Star Seeker with Memory Guidance System. White space ship operated by D batteries it has 11 orange pegs which, when fitted into the blue console base, programmed a multitude of directional moves. When placed on floor it would run along patterns programmed. The cockpit atop the ship has a blue flip up vista dome which will hold one of the Major Matt Mason action figures. This toy has been opened but looks like it was never played with. It comes in original box, has original decals never applied and planet cutouts of our solar system never used. You would stand up the planet cut outs on the floor and the Star Seeker would navigate around them. It even has original operations manuel. There is one orange peg broken from connector shown on second picture it still works. No Rust in battery compartment. This toy and accsessories are in very
Good Condition for a toy over 40 years old.

My Take:
I think this could have sold for more except for the broken peg.

Winning Bid: US $78.00

Description:Mattel Toys Man in Space. This large foot and a half high rocket ship case was manufactured to hold and store Major Matt Mason and his space equipment. It has two levels and full color graphics. It is in Great Condition.

My Take:
This one took my by surprise. It's extremely difficult to find a Space Ship Case in this condition (fragile nose cone and thrusters intact) - it went for at least half of what it's worth in my opinion. Someone good a very good deal.
