Mattel #6306 Satellite Launch Pak

#6306 Satellite Launch Pak Front

Perhaps my favorite accessory pack, the Satellite Launch Pak features another missile-firing "platform" which could hold a figure upright. The white base of the platform holds a spinning launcher, that would propel round satellites in a variety of colors some distance into the air. A two-handled control column could be held by Matt in the semblance of launching the satellite.

The firing mechanism could be tied to a string, so the action could be initiated remotely. A Greenie Stik-m-Cap could be placed under the launch device to deliver a resounding "bang" as the toy's action was delivered. The Pak included four satellites in yellow, green, blue and white. Each held a metallic silver-foil sticker, along with other "space labels" to be applied to the launcher itself.

The card reads: "Launches Big Payloads! Develops Tremendous Thrust! Boosts Satellites in Space! Remote Control Firing! Blasts Off or Fires Silently! 


The Card is full-color, process-printed and is 8 1/2" x 12" x 1 1/2" Copyright is 1966.
