That box looks really cool. It's reminded me I'm missing a MAM astronaut for my little collection.

Two things puzzle me though. Firstly, in the picture on the left the guy looks like he has no gloves on - might have cold hands after a while in space! Secondly, is this a VAM set? Seems like a lot of MAM day-glow orange in there! Laughing

This space explorer is most deffo a original palitoy item but it was only made for a very short period of time making it a very sort after item if you look at the rest of the range at the time it was all made to relate to something factual but the space explorer was very futuristic almost unbelievable like you said with no gloves in space !! making it not very popular making a boxed version almost impossible to find in fact the last boxed one which was sold going for £3000 that is why I have had a go at a repro box
