Old Toy Remembered

It's Major Matt Mason, who basically existed from 1967-1970, the best years of the Apollo space program. Matt was an astronaut, with a rubbery body and wire skeleton, รก la Gumby and Pokey, so these days would be too dangerous for kids to play with.

A couple of good websites for all things Matt Mason can be found here and here. (German language)

I had Matt, his Space Crawler and his Space Station. I also had Sgt. Storm, Matt's friend in the red spacesuit; I thought he was a Russian Cosmonaut, so I treated him as the bad guy during play.
