Let's start out by looking at some activity and coloring books featuring Marvel Super-Heroes this time...
I have no idea for sure when this activity book came out... well, the "Marvel Books" imprint would indicate early 80s.
The presence of HERBIE on this coloring book should tell you when this came out, eh?
The Hulk at the Circus coloring book... man, I tell you, either this is the lamest Hulk coloring book ever conceived, or it's got to be the most brilliant. Without having the book to look at, I have no idea. Is there a reason the Hulk's at the circus that fits with the green-skinned purple-pants version of the Hulk who called all deer "Bambi"?
The Secret Wars Coloring and Activity books are probably the only place that the Mattel vehicles from the action figure line were ever used in stories!
Getting away from the coloring books, here's a late 1960s Fantastic Four puzzle that looks pretty cool... I'm guessing it was drawn by Joe Sinnott!
This Marvel Super-Heroes Puzzle came out in the very early 1980s, and I used to have it!
Here's Remco's Hulk Utility Belt... it's the second time I've shown this photo, and I still have no idea why someone thought this was a good idea from a marketing viewpoint.
Here's some Power Records to look at:
Some of these (well, the ones that are original stories) can be pretty lame, but they're all fairly fun to listen too. It's too bad there's no legally available CD of the Power Records stuff...
That is one cool Marvel Super-Heroes sleeping bag. Not quite as cool as the DC Superheroes one I have, but pretty cool!
I wonder how many other characters have had their likenesses in sticker form adhered to this exact same sparkle gun? The card art is the best part of this toy, if you ask me.
This Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four board game shows up fairly often online... I've been trying to decide if I ever owned a copy of this game, or if it was a Fantastic Four game that had HERBIE in it.
Next time around... the Secret Wars coloring book was just an appetizer... next time, we look at some of the Secret Wars toys!
