As blogged at the time, a few years ago I bought and restored this LBZ spinning top from West Germany. It contained a silver Thunderbird 2 and illustrations of the Moon Prospector and the Scramble Bug. For years I have have been trying to find an image of the box.
Until now that is. Courtesy of a Spanish auction site here is the said box, a standard LBZ carton with open sides and a lid. Nothing specific about the top's design so far.
Neither is there anything unique about the standard box side art.
Its the box top that's the business end. You can clearly see the Thunderbird 2 and the Moon Prospector just below it. The silver space rocket has nothing to do with the toy itself but us called Starfire, the only other word that appears on the box lid other than LBZ itself.
Here's a close-up.
Another mystery solved!
