Is Mr. Spock Listening To The Radio In This Star Trek: The Motion Picture Puzzle?

I like the look of this Star Trek puzzle that was uploaded on the Vintage Toy Archive Tumblr, for one thing it does kind of look like maybe Mr. Spock is either listening to an important announcement from Captian Kirk…or it could be that he is tuning in to listen to his favorite ka’athyra channel.

The real reason I get a kick out of it is because it brings back so many memories of visiting a particular grocery store in my neck of the woods, that while it had an honest to goodness toy department with everything from the Millennium Falcon to Shogun Warriors it also had an absolute boatload of cheaper toys like this very puzzle. I’m pretty sure I actually owned this puzzle in my youth!

Though I don’t believe I picked it up at around any point that Star Trek: The Motion Picture was in the theaters.
