Cool Stuff: DC Stuff!

OK, let's start looking at some DC comics-related cool stuff!

dc_sgtrock_playset

Remco produced a pretty large line of Sgt. Rock toys all at once, but I don't believe the line really sold that well.

I have looked and looked at this photo of the DC Super Heroes Prestofix, and I still can't quite figure out what it is.

There's a lot of DC Super Heroes product that uses "Super Heroes" in a logo similar to Super Friends!

  1. sometimes, i see some toys (mostly older but some newer) and have to stop and think, "Now, that looks like knock-offs BUT then again, there are some bad offical stuff". Mostly these are ones that give Both Marvel and DC characters together or ones that are clearly the same model recoloured to make a series. But Gulliver has always been an old one when i have seen there stuff.. Seeing the 'Super Heroes' (or more, Super Herois) name instead of Super Friends, seeing villians mixed where they really shouldn't be, very basic images and art with the wrong colours (all hawkman's head yellow?) and then seeing things like Batman's model NOT having a cape really makes me think 'Knock-off' but then.. are they? or are they just half arsed jobs?

  2. Prestofix were a line produced by a crafts company Tarrson in the 1970s and 1980s. The kits were colored tiles that could be arranged on a special backing to create mosaic pictures. Two large Muppet Prestofix Kits were produced in 1977 and a Tom & Jerry version was released in 1981. Smaller Prestofix kits were released featuring specific Muppet characters. I wonder if they did the same with the DC Super Heroes.

  3. Manic Man - The Gulliver stuff seems to have been exclusive to South America, specifically Argentina - you'll see quite a few Argentinian superhero toes in the coming months!

    Jamdin - Thanks for the info on Prestofix! I think they're still making them, because I recall seeing some sets recently at Wal-Mart.
