From the Kentuckiana GI Joe Toy Expo being held on July 20, 2019 at the Hilton Garden Inn Louisville Airport in Kentucky:
This year they will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing with a KYJOE Mission Control Flight Director set and Mission Control Flight Director computer set from Artlab.

(The 2019 Kentuckiana GI Joe Toy Expo T-Shirt is also moon landing themed.)

Apollo 11 flight plan ... and a NASA worm on one of the consoles.

The worm caught my attention too. It was only used from 1975-1992. I always liked the meatball better. Despite this, I have memorabilia featuring both logos.

Still an awesome looking toy. I like the Gene Kranz vest.

No mention of this Flight Director set on their website.

As of June 11, the show's Facebook page noted the flight director set was available for pre-order:
The folks at AT-KY are now taking pre-orders for their great "Mission to the Moon" set for pick-up at this year's Kentuckiana GI Joe Toy Expo.

The cost of the limited set will be $135.00 and includes the Flight Director Uniform Set, Apollo Mission Control Kit and 1/6 Scale Office Chair.

The show has also announced a uniform set "that will honor the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 Moon landing."
The set will include a cap, jumpsuit, boots, NASA patches and an exclusive 50th anniversary commemorative figure box. The first 50 will be numbered and include a bonus US flag and stand (no figure is included).

The patches will include the NASA "meatball," an US Flag and a name tag with one of three historic moon landing names. You can collect all three. (They will be distributed randomly, unless a full set of three is ordered.)

We would like to thank Sgt.Van and the Backyard Battlefront Fantasy Boxes for the boxes and Patches of Pride for the patches.

Each set will be $50.00 and will be available for pick-up at the show.

All times are CT (US)
