Art. 4927 Capitan Meteoro

Capitan Meteoro Box Front and Back
The Mexican release of Matt (actually, Sgt Storm) places a large photo of him standing next to a typical Mattel white cat trac that looks like it's been painted gray. Capitan Meteoro is written in bold letters to one side in yellow with a red drop-shadow. The entire figure is white and appears to have been spray-painted white with brushed-on detailing. On Meteoro's chest, old glory is replaced by a red rectangle with hand-painted white stars. All currently known production figures have simplified detailing, one colour only (red), and lack painted details on their backs. The helmet appears to be an original Mattel product.

An interesting item represented on the sides of all the Meteoro boxes is this figure of Capitan Meteoro riding a space sled. The image is identified as "Atomo" or Atomic, and could either refer to the space sled as an Atomic vehicle, or may be referring to the figure itself. There exists a variation of of Capitan Meteoro molded in yellow rubber with Blue helmet and boots. The "Atomo" could be referring to a new character, who comes equiped with the space sled. Until a boxed example surfaces, I guess we'll never know. More pics of the yellow figure, taken from an eBay auction:
