"What if we merged the original Capitán Boy set with the new vehicles in the Space Base set?" Answer: the Super Capitán Boy De Luxe set with all of the Capitán Boy - not Robitin - vehicles and accessories in one set. Notice how the box includes images of the red pack Capitán Boy and aqua colored pack. I wonder which actually came in this set. And, one of only two international comics I've seen so far is included in this set.

There is an interesting variation in the Space Car. If you look at where the drive peg is you can see the plastic around it is cut out different from any other version. Makes me wonder if there was a need to send molds to Mexico for production there and Tomy shipped a prior revision rather than make a new one.

As happens, the box art is pretty far off the contents when it comes to Billy. He is not either of the gen 2 versions shown on the box - white boots with aqua or red pack - he is a walking gen 2 Billy that looks to be the same as the US version. Still don't know what the pack says but expect it to say "Hecho en Mexico" which will differentiate it from the US Billy. Also, the antenna on the Space Saucer is white.
