Last month I had the pleasure of meeeting up with fellow SWORD and SpaceX fans Wotan and Mike B. One of the topics we discussed was the Miniature Apollo Exploration Set [pictured here courtesy of Mike B.] A beautiful set both full of SpaceX lookalikes and its own attractive vehicles and features like the orange rocket. I have been trying to complete a set for some time and one of serious matters we looked at was a full and comprehensive list of the set's contents. We agreed that the rather blurry box art doesn't really help particularly with the smaller items like the various astronauts and aliens. We had a look at the list in Playset magazine, which may indeed be the definitive one. In the meantime Mike has kindly supplied these snaps of his set, which is in super shape and complete with its moonscape play-mat. Does anyone have their own version of the box contents?
Mike has also included this gallery of his nifty Apollo Moon Exploring carded sets by Imperial 1970. Does anyone else collect Apollo Moon Exploring, Apollo Exploration Set or any of the many varitions? Pictures and observations welcomed. Do you think that they compare well with SpaceX?
