eBay Roundup for March 2011

Fairly light for March although there were a few interesting items. Sorry this took so long to post - been having problems with Blogger (it stopped working with IE for some reason).

MAJOR MATT MASON 1968 MATTEL JET PACK SPACE LARGE LOT


Item number: 150567667672
Ended: Mar 01, 2011 18:07:54 PST
Winning bid: US $392.77

Description:Large lot Of Major Matt Mason
From fair to very good condition
See picture for description
First picture is the lot
 
My Take:
Of course this is part of an Astro Trac Missile Convoy set with a couple of figures - the mat with craters normally sells in the $200 range and the MLP still sell for $50 or so loose.












Major Matt Mason 1968 Red UniTred Space Hauler Mint OSS


Item number: 190509925518
Ended: Mar 14, 2011 18:38:05 PDT
Winning bid: US $133.50

Description:Major Matt Mason 1968 Red UniTred Space Hauler Mint OSS
Mint Shape with box. Box has some warping but no rips and toy has only dashboard decal that is peeling.

Instruction sheep had edge wear and 2 cuts.
TESTED-Toy runs excellent and is excellent shape.
Hard to find better than this.
Please see pictures below. 
Shipping will be $12.80 to USA. International $26.80
I will combine shipping.

My Take:
Nice example but hardly Old Store Stock (stickers have been applied).



Major Matt Mason Man In Space SPACE MISSION TEAM MIB


Item number: 280639885326
Ended: Mar 15, 2011 14:16:42 PDT
Offer Price: US $2,100.00

Description:Up for sale today is Mattel Man In Space SPACE MISSION TEAM MIB that has never been opened and is from 1968.This is a opportunity to own one of the best known example that has never been on display until now! This piece was obtained from a former store owner that discovered this un sold and never displayed piece hidden inside a box for over 43 years and is considered difficult to find complete and with undamaged figures, this is truly a opportunity to own such a clean specimen of this high a pedigree with box graphics that pop like the day it was printed. This piece is stored in a double enforced egg create box and the specimen has been shrink wrapped to protect it from all elements including UV sunlight. Great care has been taken to maintain and preserve this piece so that it will last for generations to come. I have set a price that I am comfortable with but I will entertain serious offers along with a payment plan provided you qualify. I admit this is not for the starting collector but more for the most scrupulous collector that demands the highest quality. ***NON-UPGRADABLE*** I will spare no expense as Item will be shipped with insurance and packed in several boxes with all new products and prior shipping photographs will be provided as a security insurance measure.

My Take:
Looks like the seller who bought the box lot let one go to another dealer, who has listed a set himself. Bit high dollar and of course no takers. At least we've swapped that god-awful plaid with some over-exposed photos...

Item number: 170614275118
Ended: Mar 17, 2011 18:17:51 PDT
Winning bid: US $74.00

Description:Major Matt Mason
Mobile Launch Pad
Very Good Condition

My Take:
Appears to be one of the MLPs missing from the ATMCS sold earlier...

My Take:
These chip boxes do seem to be very hard to acquire - I know it took many years to find the Supernaut Power Limbs for my own collection. I've owned a couple of these Space Power Suite chip boxes - the most common seems to be the Gamma Ray Gard...

MOLTO IMPORTANTE....
In caso di problemi, prima di lasciare un feedback negativo, contattatami subito. A volte un semplice malinteso (o l'inefficienza di Banche e Poste) può compromettere per sempre su Ebay l’attendibilità di un venditore. Io ci metto molta serietà e massimo impegno.
DATO CHE MOLTI SE LO DIMENTICANO.
RILASCERO' IL FEEDBACK SUBITO DOPO AVERLO RICEVUTO

My Take:
A rather uncommon ad from an Italian comic book (small-sized).

Vintage Jeff Long Major Matt Mason loose no broken wire


Item number: 160562655898
Ended: Mar 28, 2011 19:34:01 PDT
Winning bid: US $39.00

Description:Vintage Jeff Long
from Major Matt Mason
From my personal collection – here's the major's buddy, Jeff Long. I am the original owner and I loved these toys, so even though he was played with, he wasn't abused – no broken wires. He's obviously missing all his paint but is in great, super-clean condition. Prime candidate for a repaint. Check out the photos to see for yourself.

My Take:
I consider this more of a novelty item - I do remember many years ago (before there was an eBay) when someone in Toyshop Magazine advertized a "rare" unpainted MMM figure - it looked like this one only with a MMM head.

Major Matt Mason 1968 Space Crawler Mint OSS


Item number: 190515328498
Ended: Mar 29, 2011 17:36:30 PDT
Winning bid: US $260.00

Description:Major Matt Mason 1968 Space Crawler Mint OSS
Never Assembled. Mint. Toy tested works.
Decals still on sheet (slight warping). Instruction a few chips.
Cannot find better than this.
Please see pictures below. 
Shipping will be $12.80 to USA. International $26.80

I will combine shipping.
I ship in sturdy boxes to protect your purchase and I ship promptly. I always offer combined shipping for multiple auction wins. Feel free to contact me with questions. Check out my feedback and bid with confidence. Good luck!

My Take:
I'm actually surprised that this didn't go for more - uncommon to find an OSS example and very desirable - a cornerstone collection piece.












That's it for March - I'll try to get April up later this week.
