Miner Industries: Star Base Command Tower (1979)

Via John Kenneth Muir’s Reflections on Cult Movies and Classic Television. Muir says the Tower was released in ’79 by Minor Industries, but I can’t find anything about the company on the Intertubes. The box says ‘Major’ with a little ‘i’ above the ‘M’, so possibly it’s Major Industries—no luck searching for that either.

I’m very curious, because this has to be the same company that released the awesome Galactic Attack Dome in 1980—

The men, the vehicles, and those space pods are exactly the same. Are there more of these kick-ass space sets out there? Where might I ogle them?

Anyone in the know should contact me immediately, lest I die of extreme nerd curiosity.

    I know I’ve seen those tanks before on a vintage ad featured on Plaid Stallions. They have these cool missile launchers on the top. I had the same tanks but molded in army green for an army playset which I could’ve sworn was made by Marx.

    Man, that’s a huge freakin’ radar dish on that Galactic Attack Dome set! That dome is too funny—those doods would be history if someone shot a missile at it, lol.
