Yeah, but you'd need to scrape the top of his head bald! AND he probally felt that he was not going to make any money off the part, you know just like Jeff Hunter as Capt Pike! Man he made a mistake!

Unfortunately, Jeff Hunter was injured on a movie set and died in May 1969, just after what was Trek's last season. If Roddenberry had done all the recasting he did, but Hunter had decided to stay with the show, it would have had a much different tone. I thought he was too stiff as Pike, but then Shatner was the same way at the beginning.

If Hunter had stayed with the show, his death could have been the end of Trek, because it would have been hard to do the movies without a known captain.

But then again, if he'd been on Trek he might not have been on the set of "Viva America," where he was hurt, setting of the chain of events that led to his death at age 42.

Just goes to show ya never know what hand Fate will deal...

Are you kidding? I had just about every MMM accessory available. Spent many a Saturday playing spaceman with my friends. Every once in awhile I check that E-place to see what's available. Would love to get my hands on a GI Joe space capsule too. BTW - MRC/Atomic City are putting out a 1/12 scale Mercury capsule soon.

Anyway - getting back to that Bonanza kit. It never got a bid at usd $90.00. If you really want it, mightn't it be worth it to shoot the guy an e-mail and make an offer. I came away a few times with kits at much better prices using that unscrupulous yet efficient method.

Veedub, the capsule may not be that hard to find, it was reissued within the last 5 years, I believe. I kept my Mego Spock in mine... an original, of course. Love to know what I did with it. It was one of those things, you look around and you don't have any more, but you don't remember getting rid of? I think there are some forms of matter that simply fade, but science doesn't know about them because... well, because they fade...
