The capsule measures 10 1/2 inches or 27 centimeters long and it is 7 inches or 18 centimeters high at its highest point. It is complete and all original and comes with the original box top. I do not have the bottom of the box.There are some signs that the toy has been played with; it is not in mint condition. There are some small scratches, paint chips, and small dings, nothing major. The colors are great, very vivid and bright and the litho is in excellent condition. The original plastic shield over the cockpit of the capsule has some scratches and small scrapes but again, any damage is minor. The plastic shield is intact with no cracks or breaks. The toy takes 3 D batteries; the battery case is very clean.
The battery operations work fine. When the switch is turned to ON, the capsule moves in a bump and go pattern while the lights in the interior flash off and on. It is a very colorful display. The capsule is not perfect but it is a very nice tin battery operated space toy.
The top of the box is in O. There have been some repairs done to the inside of the box; as you can see, there is a tear in one of the end flaps that extends to the face of the box. The tear has been repaired but you can still see it.
The top of the box has some wear and tear but overall it has some great graphics and it is a very colorful, dynamic box. This is a great tin space toy that works. Questions are welcome and I will be happy to provide additional photos.
