Major Matt Mason Cake Topper


This knock-off appeared sometime in the 70's. A very obvious ripoff, but cool nontheless, the cake topper was previously thought to be a licensed item. Due to the lack of any Mattel copyrights or markings, however, I believe this to be a truck knock-off of the Mattel photo of MMM from the top of the Flight Card or Insert Catalog.

The back of the hard plastic/styrene item, has "EGC,CINCINATTI OHIO" AND "MADE IN HONG KONG" in raised lettering. The front, raised details are printed with blue or red paint (the paint is applied randomly, so some of these appear almost all blue, while others are almost all red). At some point, as small plastic sign with "Galactic Warrior" was applied to the sled base with glue. Many that you see have had this removed (the removal glue marks are obvious).

You can purchase a reproduction of this Cake Topper from Don Thompson of the Big Red Toybox. More pics below, plus a pic from Alec Peters' birthday party, where a special cake was made with a repro topper!
