One of the reasons I began collecting toys was my love for Space:1999 merchandise, so these Mattel Space:1999 toy offerings from 1976 (http://www.plaidstallions.com/mattel/space1999.html) are something I'm really hyped about bringing to the site.

Nice addition. :) Other than the Sunshine Family bodies, I like Mattel's 9" figures, maybe because my sister and I had a couple of them as kids, so there's some sentimental attachment for me (although I never watched the show). The Moon Base Alpha playset is cool too, I just wish I had somewhere to set up and display mine, as it's pretty damn big when all folded out. I didn't know that the computer was recycled from Matt Mason, thanks for the info!

the giant Eagle ship is my "Rosebud."
it was my fave toy throughout my "toy" years, it subbed for the Millenium Falcon when my folks wouldn't spring for one.

I lost it bit by bit over the years..

I'd like to score another one.

Space 1999 stuff was a big deal for me too! I watched the show and always wanted the massive Eagle 1... I never got one as a child. I have one now, but it is far from mint I would like to find a mint one... someday :)

I wouldn't admit to be being a sci-fi fan as a kid, but no kid could resist the absolute cool-ness of this toy. It was so freakin' big, I couldn't help and use it with my 8" Megos.

An absolute fav of mine, no doubt!
