Mattel #634 Greenie Stik-M-Caps 480 ct

#634 Greenie Stik-M-Caps 480 ct Box Front

Mattel's Greenie Stik-M-Caps were distributed by Mattel for use in western, and detective cap guns from the late 50's through the mid 60's. They are included here because of their possible use in the #6305 Rocket Launch Pak and #6306 Satellite Launch Pak (they are actually referenced on the back of the carded packages).

There were two box quantity variations, one containing 480 and another containing 120 (see Mattel Stock #633)

There were two box variations, one containing 480 cap-firing, self-adhesive loads for a total of two "green" sheets, each containing 240 caps (Mattel Stock #634) for a total of 480 caps! A load could be stuck to the back of a plastic bullet and loaded into a Mattel Real Shootin Shell Pistol. For the Satellite Launcher a cap could be placed under a spring mechanism designed to fire when the string was pulled (to release the flying disc). The Rocket Launcher's cap was on the missile itself, to explode on impact.


The green, black and white box is 9/16" x 3 1/4" x 4 1/8"

There are the two packaging variations of the Stik-M-Caps #634, the ends could either fold in or be found glued.. There are also variations of Mattel's green rolled, perforated roll caps called, you guessed it, Greenie Roll Caps. These could be found in an assortment with the Stik-M-Caps in one Master Carton (Mattel #406 Greenie Cap Assortment).

John's Notes:

There was a recent find of several full cases of the 120-count Greenie Stik-M-Caps. The most remarkable thing about the find is that the caps still fire! You can still find these on eBay for less than $15 today, considerably less than the $35 - $60 they used to demand at shows 5 years ago. Well worth the price of admission to once again hear that satisfying "Bang!" as a Satellite launches!
