MLP









Here's a gallery of the Spacex Mobile Launch Pad (MLP), one of the best looking space toys I think. The top 3 pics are the US Golden Astronaut issue and the bottom 6 are the Spacex issue. They are smaller than their big brothers, the Century 21 Cape Kennedy Set and the Sears 3 stage rocket but fabulous toys nonetheless. Anyone got any other US or Triang boxes? I'm not sure the MLP came with a badge. Anyone know?

  1. PAUL - i can confirm that the MLP never had a badge included in the box, it predated the second series considerably, even though some of the first series toys were marketed alongside the new ones.
