    I had no idea there was a commercial for it. I was obsessed with the show, when I was little and I knew I wanted that ship, when I saw one in the store...bugged my mom endlessly...it showed up Christmas morning (I probably shared this photo before...I can't recall...).

    I was NOT a fan of the show as a kid, but I could not resist the awesome of this toy when my brother got it for Christmas. I played with it whenever he wasn't looking.

    Anyone else catch the kids calling out to “Alpha Control?” It instantly made me think of “Lost in Space” - I get the Alpha reference, but I wonder why they didn’t use “Moonbase Alpha” instead? Regardless, it’s a cool commercial that I’ve never seen before.

    What an awesome toy. Can't believe I trashed mine when I was a kid.
    I remember this commercial. Especially the part about winching up the figure.

    I do remember not being happy that the one figure could only be used in the seated position.

    I got the Six Million Dollar Man that same year for Christmas, actually. You can see my sister holding her Bionic Woman figure (that she got) in the photo above too (and her Jaime Sommers/Lindsay Wagner poster on the wall behind us...LOL!).

    That was the big turn-off for me. I admire the ship now, though--lovely toy.

    BTW, interested to hear you used the Space: 1999 playset with Megos. I love playsets and was wondering about the scale of the accessories.
