Vintage 1979 Kenner 18 Alien Monster figure VF/VF+ clean with Box, Stock # 70060. The alien figure is complete with working Teeth and plastic is free of any cracks, stress marks or surface wear. There are no chipped or missing pieces on Figure as he stands freely and tail firmly attached with no cracking or missing scales. All (4) Spikes on back are clean with no wear and lever for spring action feature on arms attached but not working as Arms take prompting to hold position and hang loose.They are not loose from socket but the grabbing action/Spring function not working so arms missing tightness to hold continuous pose. There is a small scratch on glow in the dark head as chrome on Teeth/ Jaws are perfect with no toning. I tested Glow feature and activation still works although faint as Dome not warped or scratched however (4) of the (6) clips are snapped off.
It still sits flush on head and some very light surface wear present but no melt marks or cracks evident. He stands over 18 Tall as Hands, Feet, Tail, Teeth all perfect as he also comes in Original box. All Leg/Arm joints tight with no stress marks as figure has strong coloring and is able to stand freely or hang from tail. The box measures approximately 20" Long by 7" Wide and sits 8.50 Deep. It is missing the red cardboard insert which held figure and no Poster as box is in Good condition.
It exhibits moderate wear and the front display window is partially loose along bottom and sides. The Good housekeeping seal has also been removed from bottom of box and there is some obvious surface, corner wear. The box still retains shape however and coloring vibrant with no marks or staining as top flap attached but worn and spitting along back top edges. The toy was considered too grotesque and parental groups objected causing it to be pulled or ending up in discount bins as toy made for only one year as tough toy to find in any condition. This Alien is in VF/VF+ clean condition except for minor issues like Spring malfunction and clip/tabs on Dome.P lease take a look at my other auctions I have listed this evening as I have been tasked by a close friend to help close out their families estate as they had multiple Hobby rooms and both of them collected everything and anything... Some would say Hoarder but I say pure genius. S tay tuned as 100's of multi generational toys, collectibles and ephemera that we intend on listing in the upcoming month(s) with items ranging from turn of Turn of Century games to Slot Cars being found. The Alien come directly from a non smoking environment as the items were kept in cold storage for over 35-90+ years as house was like an old Child World store with a Jordan Marsh - Mars - 5 & 10 - Ethan Allen mixed together. A fact my wife likes to remind me of daily...
