CONTENTS: 1 boxed set

Missing 2 aliens, 8 furniture pieces, one yellow piece missing radar dish, missing paper US flag on pole, the flying saucer launcher, 1 Nike rocket launcher has been glued & some various springs. Moon ship missing trigger and springs but includes copy of instructions for that piece. Box is about a C-5 with 4 tape tears and "basement" written on top. Inside top was used as a paint box. Tape tear on sides, shows some age and shelf wear but still sturdy, complete and holds the whole set. Lots of pictures so view all closely. Ask question as I am very good at responding. I have spent a day and a half looking at this set correcting and adding to it making the set very good to excellent condition. An empty box recently sold for $185.00!!
