New Matchbox Display

Just got this in the mail today, all the way from England.

It's a reproduction but I think it is fantastic.

Mystery Space Ship by Marx

One of the toys I had and loved as a kid was the Mystery Space Ship which was made by Marx. I can remember having the spaceship, the crank and the stand. The rest was gone.

It was a yellow saucer shaped ship that had a gyroscope that you cranked up and it could do amazing tricks.

Well, I've been searching for one for awhile and finally got one in an auction at a decent price. I got the package and opened it up and the ship is fantastic. It is in great condition and works well.

Also got the box (pictured above) as well as the orange plastic astronauts and green plastic moonmen as well as the looped handle. Only thing that seems to be missing is the instruction booklet.
