Fisher Price Alpha Interceptor

Fisher Price Alpha Interceptor

I’ve been collection Fisher Price Adventure People for a few years now and this is the first boxed vehicle from that line that I have run across in the wild. I was initially excited when I saw the $14.99 price tag, but the contents were incomplete and the box was in pretty poor shape. This picture doesn’t relay the amount of duct tape that was used to hold it together, and although the ship and instructions were inside the box, the man was missing and the instructions (and possible the box) had sustained some water damage.

Since I already own a loose version of this ship I had to leave this one behind on the shelf, but finding something like this in the wild always gives me hope that I’ll find something else the next time!

(Ages 5-9, hah!)

    I had one of those. It was awesome. It was a model, but was really durable like most FP toys. It came with a triangular piece of metal that worked like a screwdriver to assemble (probably cheaper and safer than a regular screwdriver.
    The toy itself was pretty good. The center part (the turntable you see on the box art) separated from the rest, like an escape pod. Best of all, the pilot was GI Joe scale (Joes in space!)
    I also had a jet plane that looked sort of like a F18 from the same line.
    I have to go check my parents’ house to see if they’re still there.
