The M.E.L. was among the largest of the Micronauts vehicles, consisting of a deep blue delta shaped aircraft-like chassis topped with an enormous white tower, itself capped with a yellow canopied flying saucer. Miniature yellow canopies adorned the tower, which could be removed to allow the base ship to operate independently with seating for two under the tower and one in the forward cockpit, itself detachable. The tower is in two parts, with either being expendable.
- The M.E.L. made a large scale appearance in the Terry Gilliam film Time Bandits. Towards the end when allies are recruited from across time for a final showdown with the evil genius, the spaceship from the future is a human-scale replica of part of the M.E.L..
