Mercury Astronaut

When the Soviet Union launched SPUTNICK in 1957, the United States responded with the Mercury Program. Beginning in July of 1961 and ending in 1963, the success of the program allowed President Kennedy to proclaim that the United States would land a man on the moon by the end of the 1960s. The Mercury Astronaut commemorates this milestone and is dressed in an authentic space suit with patches and air hose connector, a helmet with communications link and visor, gloves, air hose, ventilator, boots and dog tags. Scheduled release of this figure is July, 1997 with an approximate retail price of $29.99 per figure.
