I saw this at a recent BASFA auction and couldn't believe it was going for so low, so I went ahead and snapped it up for the Worldcon Charity Auction.
A bit of history on a couple of fronts. These six cardboard boxes held McDonald's first promotional Happy Meals, based on the release of Star Trek the Motion Picture. Every inch of the boxes are covered with related images, puzzles, trivia, movie lines, etc. They've been unfolded, stored flat and are in great shape. Reportedly there were five different designs, so one of these is a duplicate, I think it's McCoy, but I might be wrong.
Also included are three toys: two copies of the board game, and the grail of this collection: a communicator that "plays" a cartoon strip story from the film. That's still unassembled in the original bag!
McDonalds fans and Star Trek Fans have a golden opportunity to pick up a rare piece of collectable history.
Burger not included.
Again, I hope you'll come out and support the Worldcon76 in San Jose Charity Auction, the beneficiary of which is the Alzheimer's Association. If you're a fan of fantastic art, unique collectables and just really cool stuff, there's sure to be quite a few items that you'll need to add to your collection.
