Damn. I was hoping against hope that the upper and lower hull halves would be single pieces, as in the original Leif Ericson and the first, large-box Interplanetary UFO issue. I suppose restoring the mold would have involved back-engineering and been prohibitively expensive. Well, I guess the extra goodies make up for the inconvenience of the "split" tooling.. . . The neck separates about 1 3/8 in from the main body. No chrome or clear parts, but the bug shuttle does have the landing pads and it looks like the engine inserts are included, but in the glow plastic. It has a large very complete set of really cool decals! that includes battle damage, an interior to the shuttle bay, exterior detail, and pirate markings.
No problem!Everything is identical to the small box IPUFOMS as expected. No record . . .
With a little reworking, the basic shape would make a cool-looking submarine.This and the TOS Cylon Base Star were some of my favorite pool toys of all time.:thumbsup:
