OK, I said we were starting off with a few coloring books...
You know, there's just something bizarre about a coloring book based on a car toy line where the art seems to show the toys as toys, like this Johnny Lightning coloring book above!
But then, the Hot Wheels ones seemed to be the same way!
Well, okay, this one wasn't... it was based on the animated series!
But this sticker book definitely looks like it's supposed to be toys.
Did you have any idea that there were so many coloring and activity books based on Hot Wheels? I certainly didn't!
But enough of coloring books for now...
This Classic Countdown game isn't tied in with any particular character or tv series or movie... but I thought it was too cool not to save the photo and share it here!
Here's some more photos I saved just for the heck of it...
If there's a very successful toy line, sooner or later, someone will try to copy it... and that's the case above, with the Star Fleet figures (knockoffs of Shogun Warriors and other robot lines) and the Starroid figures (knockoffs of Star Wars). And that still happens today, but most of the knockoffs tend to go right to the dollar stores and Big Lots!
It's very rare that I post GI Joe stuff here... but when I saw this Skyhawk photo, I had to save it! It was an actual hang glider that flew with your 12" Joe in it!
Here's an extremely cool vintage construction toy... Ideal's Klikit!
And Ideal's Super City was pretty cool, too!
Remco produced this walking Rudy Robot!
Remco also produced this space gun, which I think is extremely cool!
Hey, it's been a while since I've posted photos of Ideal's Zeroids... let's take a look at a few, shall we?
Next time around... we'll start looking at some DC stuff!
