CAN - Space Base (gen 1)

Stock #: 9437 Release year: 1969 Sold in: Canada Sold by: Eldon Manufactured in: Japan

Same as the US set with just a few changes on the box art and I would expect, instruction sheets in both English and French. The box cover has bilingual text in the upper-left area and one of the larger sides is in English while the other is in French.

TV Commercials

Excellent transfer of the 1969 commercial for Billy Blastoff Space Base set. Notice the prototype wheels on the grabber. Also interesting that they don't show the claw action which to me is one of the coolest movements of the vehicles.
