(Mattel, 1966) An excessively rare Lost in Space Roto Jet Gun weapon set manufactured by Mattel. The set includes a pistol with "infra-red" scope, a roto launcher with launch-cartridge, and 2 "safe plastic roto missiles." The components can be reconfigured and combined to form a sub-carbine and a rifle. The pistol is embellished with a Lost in Space Roto-Jet Gun metallic foil decal. All items are assembled in the original cardboard box packaging, which features eye-catching, profusely illustrated metallic foil labels on two sides. The back of the box has diecut windows displaying the components of the set. Miraculously, the set has never been opened and is still factory sealed in shrink wrap. There is an unobtrusive approximately 2.5" tear to the shrink-wrap on the reverse above the opening for the pistol. The box has been encapsulated in an acrylic display case by the Action Figure Authority, which measures 16.25"x25.5" and 5.25" deep. The case retains an AFA grade label, rating the set an 80 or Near Mint. The quintessential 1960s sci-fi gun, finding a complete Roto Jet Gun set is difficult, while unopened factory sealed examples, like the one offered here, are virtually unknown. This is a chance to own one of the Holy Grails of vintage toy collecting.
