Fun MMM Photos

I get a lot of photos from fans that are MMM related, but may not be categorized in any specific category.  Most of these have some type of entertainment value associated with them. Enjoy! And as usual, if you have anything you'd like to contribute, please contact me (link at page bottom)

Soaring with the Eagles!

Martin Gainsford is a huge UK collector of Major Matt Mason and Gerry Anderson collectibles (such as Space: 1999). These images are of figures posed next to large-scale models that were actually used in production. 

Second Eagle Image

Martin writes: " thought these pics may be of interest and maybe of use for the fun page. A pal of mine owns an original 44 Inch Eagle from SPACE:1999. The guys are a little too big but are almost small enough to look just right. After Commander Koenig and his pals took over MMM's base in the 1970s when Mattel re-used elements of the base for their SPACE:1999 playset Doug and Matt thought they may just commandeer this baby for a quick flight. The Eagle is one of the three largest built for the actual series. This 'miniature' was the second one built for the series and is 44 inches long. It is a little beat up but remains in pretty much the condition it was when the series finished filming. It is owned by my friend Andrew Frampton who has a magnificent collection of props and costumes from SPACE:1999 and the other Gerry Anderson programmes"

You can praise Martin here.

Dude, where's my car?

As I recall, someone had a MMM figure with them for some reason at a car show. I don't quite remember who sent me this image or whether it was just posted - if someone would like to claim it, please do.

Should anybody reading this have any similar information, additions or corrections, then we would very much appreciate hearing about them.
