Lego 305 - Two Crater Plates (1979)

I understand this is 35+ years old, but I was wondering if anyone had ever seen this for sale in store back in the day or was it only available via direct order.  Also out of curiosity when this was last available at Lego [email protected]

    Man I just love looking back at the classic space, even way before Star Wars took over.  I have some sets from the 80's.  My first one was the 6824 Space Dart I and last was the 6985 Cosmic Fleet Voyager.  I had a handful of the smaller sets in between, but I was a Town guy. 

    I just remembered the annoying angle plates that didn't have cut-outs for studs (like they do today) so you had to work around that. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=3933a#T=C Weird memories from so long ago.

    Pretty sure they would have been available in stores, as I had a few and my parents never did mail order anything!

    Yes, they were definitely available in stores.

    I remember going to the 'Pram & Toy' shop in Exeter in 1982 with my older brother and he bought me a set of them, plus the matching Lunar Landing Plates.   It was a day I'll always remember, as it was the first time I'd gone to a cinema - to see ET! 

    Life didn't get much better as a seven year old!

    I agree with @mr_benn - fairly sure they were available in shops.

    I had four of the plates, 2 came with #6971 Intergalactic Command Base, but the other two must have been from #305 which someone must have got me from a store.

    I definitely bought these with some pocket money or birthday money. It would have been Gamleys in Staines circa 1981/2.
