When I watched Stargate SG-1: Children of the Gods, I didn't know there really was an action figure called "Major Matt Mason" - Samantha Carter talked about him in that episode.  I think I thought it was invented for the show.

Then when I visited my parents this Christmas, I was looking through some old magazines, in this case Donald Duck, from 1968. (At some point when I was a kid, my parents bought several years worth of those old comics for me, from an antiquarian bookstore, I think). Anyway, I found this awesome advertisement, for "Major Matt Mason"!

(For anyone who cares, translated from Danish this reads: "Major Matt Mason - a bold and well equipped astronaut, who with his assistant, Sergent Storm, has landed on the Moon, where they explore the fascinating landscape from their spacestation. Major Matt Mason and Sergent Storm comes with helmet, Moon-sleigh and one-man rocket, and costs 24.50 DKK". BRIO was/is a Swedish company that originally made just wooden toys, but later sold a lot of different types of toys)

Very cool! You can see him sitting on Sam's bed in the hallucination scene in The Devil You Know. :D
