6378 Talking Flying Matt Mason


Click to Enlarge


Once again utilizing the mod, 60's packaging found in other boxed sets from this period, the Talking Flying Matt Mason featured a window to view the Talking Command Voice Pac-wearing figure. Basically a "combo-pack" of two separate playsets, this boxed set came with a figure/helmet, the Talking Command Voice Pak (from the Talking MMM set) and an XRG-1 Reentry Glider.

Detailed descriptions of both accessories may be found in: 6360 XRG-1 Reentry Glider and 6362 Talking Major Matt Mason listings.

Packaging:
The box is made of corrugated cardboard printed on all sides (in black, white and blue ink), except the front and bottom, which have applied a full-color, process-printed label. The package measures 18" by 18" by 4 3/4". Copyright is 1970. The box reads: "Includes Major Matt Mason - Voice Command Pak and XRG-1 Reentry Glider" - "Calls Out Life-Saving Orders to His Crew!"

John's Notes:
Until a few years ago, this was thought of as one of the rarer MMM playsets. Recently several have turned up (not to say that it isn't difficult to find - it still is, however it's no on par with the 6361 XRG-1 Reentry Glider with Major Matt Mason). Make sure you checkout the listing for both 6360 and 6362 for a more comprehensive look at both accessories. You should also check out Pat LeBlanc's X-RV Lifting Body custom.
