Mars needs candy! The M&Ms UFO Scene

M&M candies are magical! Want proof? Fill a bowl with them and see how quickly they disappear! If Earthlings like them that much, why wouldn’t residents of other planets enjoy them as well? The whimsical Intergalactic Party Bus from Menards helps spread the joy through your O gauge universe.

The Basics: This fully decorated accessory adds light and excitement to your O gauge layout with a colorful array of changing lights from the UFO. The 8-inch wide saucer has an illuminated control room, and eerie green light projecting down from the cargo bay.

The 12-¾ by 10-inch accessory has a pigtail plug designed for use with Menards Plug & Play system. Check Menards SKUs 279-4061, 279-4062, or 279-4050. You may wish to consider the 8- or 9-piece Plug & Play accessory kits (SKU# 279-4035, 4681) and to serve multiple structures and vehicles. All are available separately.

Why you need this: If you love Candy and UFOs, this is made for your layout! A bright yellow UFO has landed on the field looking for cargo. It even has an M&M pilot. But fear not, the spaceship comes in peace. It is the Intergalactic Party Bus, a spaceship with the mission of spreading happiness and M&Ms around the universe!

The decorated base features space aliens, grass, trees, and the whole M&M gang - red, green, yellow, orange and blue. There is another red M&M holding the fort on a large case of M&Ms.

The spaceship has an eye catching color array, with alternating red and flashing along the sides of the ship. A green light emanates from the bottom of the saucer! But yellow M&M hasn’t been paying attention and he has been caught up in the tractor beam and is being lifted skyward. Even Jack the German Shepherd was smart enough not to fall into that trap!

The rise and fall of the clamp and the hapless yellow M&M cycles up and down, but fear not, it will probably be sorted out before liftoff!

Why will this colorful outfit work with your trains? Easy. Menards also offers a range of M&Ms boxcars in red, blue, silver and yellow. M&Ms hopper cars are also available in yellow and brown. And don’t forget the no. 279-5370 O scale warehouse background building. One of the signage sets includes M&Ms graphics!
