Six Foot Saturn V


A rare paper card stock book that you can cut up and make a model of the Saturn V moon rocket was on eBay today and sold for $102.00. You can get it used on a network of Bookstores for around $50.00.

Adventure Team Astronaut



Another Adventure Team Astronaut I'm bidding on. Photos pulled off eBay. I plan to sell the gun if I win the bid. This will be the final figure in my "Return to the Moon" moonscape for a parade float.

Well first I must win it of course:)

2001 action figure











Photos of a 2001 1/6 action figure I pulled off eBay. The almost $2000.00 starting big is out of my budget by light years.

A Moon Buggy













The Moon Buggy and John and Jane Apollo I won on eBay. The three bottom pictures I still have and open bid on. Glad to add the Moon Buggy to my collection.

Johnny Apollo with red helmet


Didn't have a space helmet with the used action figure so I added a Planet of the Apes Leo helmet that I had painted red. Will add the visor later. I have a helmet for Jane with visor as well.

No way I can scale these figures down to match my Matt Mason collection.

Johnny Apollo and Jane Apollo




The top two photos are ebay bids I won. After losing a lot of bids I finally (or almost ) have a Johnny and Jane Apollo for my Moon Base and mission to Mars. I will be down scaling both Johnny and Jane to work with my Matt Mason toys.

All the toys in this Wards 68 booklet will be recreated in a all toy bashing free for all. My wonderful Daughter-In-Law Amanda bought a Captain Laser and his cousin Commander (?) from BSG. I plan to turn them both into strange aliens.

Capsule in You Tube video


Here is the Orion like capsule in a You Tube response to Epic Future Space. 
I'm using Black Screen in this video and the black light lighting helped when I combined the shots.

Major Matt Mason, Toy Bashing #3

video

I haven't done one of these MMM toy bashing vids in a while. This isn't really about toy bashing as much is it is about creating a capsule to scale for the MMM toy line. In this case a Orion size capsule. Other toy collectors have created Mercury capsules but I wanted to make a webcam movie about what is going on in the here and now, with 60's space toys. 

The two clips at the end of the movie were done with Photo Booth effects. The mirror effect clip has lighting only from the screen of my computer in front of my studios black velvet back drop. The second clip has lighting from a black light and footage from NASA in the background.
