Vintage 1980 Fisher Price Alpha Probe spaceship. It looks like a space shuttle, has a cargo bay with 2 doors that open, rolls on 3 wheels, and has 3 buttons on the wing that controls electronic sounds. The first button makes an accelerating rocket sound. The second button makes computer-like communication sounds. The third button makes a warning sound and makes red lights on the wings flash. Each sound turns off automatically and overridden by another sound at anytime. Requires a 9-volt battery. There is also the Recon Probe spaceship wich is a small, blue-gray single occupant space ship with a white top that lifts up to allow pilot access. The Recon Probe fits inside the cargo bay of the Alpha Probe, or can be docked on a railway on top of the cargo doors. When the Recon Probe is in the cargo bay, it can rotate to an upright (nose up) position in order to allow the crew seats in the main ship to pull out for the astronaut, wich is included. The gray rocket boosters fit both on the back of Alpha Probe, or on the back of the Recon Probe.
Spaceship is in excellent shape with all decals intact. All sounds work well. A real collectors item or great toy for some lucky child.
