LP #901E Men From The Planet Earth First Set Foot On The Moon

Thanx to the packaging on this set, we know there are six sets total in this series. I was lucky enough to get this one many years ago but haven't seen any of the other sets since then. The packaging on this one is a wreck. The previous owner had taken the clear plastic cellophane and taped it onto the front of the box! Okay, I know I should have repositioned it but just haven't had the 'oomph' to mess with it yet - sorry! This set is great in that it has the Disney / Von Braun RM-1 Space Ship - one of my favorites in LP's small space toy line. It also has the small sized 'pointy tube with fins' type space ship, one of the Major Matt Mason sled variants, a terrain piece with satellite dish, and the remants of another piece which I cover at the end of the post. Enjoy! Opa Fritz

There's something broken off of this piece. By looking at the photos on the box back (which aren't that clear BTW) it appears as if there was some kind of ball or globe attached and that these appeared in the other sets as well - but to what purpose!
