|Mattel's Major Matt Mason Master Assortment for 1968 included every figure available that year. It also included a free standing cardboard figure of Capt Lazer and a Matt Mason header for the display.
The assortment probably came in a plain cardboard box with Mattel logo's and an assortment number printed on either end. Because the assortment came with examples of every MMM character for 1968, the carton would be fairly large (though no where nearly as large as the Master Assortment of 1967!).

This figure assortment was initially offered in 1968 and some variation of it continued throughout the toy line's run. This weighed much less than assortment A6314 of 1967, and I would imagine that the freight costs were much more palatable.
