This time around, the focus starts on Space: 1999!
Did anything like the Alien vehicle presented here in this model kit ever appear on the show itself?
I always liked the design of the Eagle spaceships... I even scratch-built one out of balsa wood, with only a line drawing from a model rocket ad in the comics to use as a guide! As I recall, it didn't come out half-bad... wish I still had some photos of it!
I wonder why the model kit identifies this as "Alpha Moonbase," and not "Moonbase Alpha"?
Here's the biggest Space: 1999 toy ever made -- Mattel's gigantic Eagle transporter!
Perhaps even more fun to play with would be this playset by Amsco, the same company that made the "Marvel World" playset!
Yes, that was it for Space: 1999... next up is this kind of neat "Space Case" that was supposed to hold your Star Wars figures... and knockoffs, too!
And now, we start on Spider-Man items, just in case you're not getting enough on the Spider-Man Stuff blog!
This inflatable "flote" came out in 1977!
This watch came out in 1977, too!
OK, so I was mistaken, there was a Spidey jiggler, too... but I think this was an AHI product, while the Red Skull and Doc Strange ones were made by Ben Cooper (yes, I'm referring back to posts from a few weeks back)!
Speaking of AHI, here's one of their versions of the Spider-Man parachutist... there was at least one other card design they used.
Corgi Spider-Bike! Yes, there was no Spider-Bike in the comics, but at least Peter Parker rode a motorcycle for a while!
And while Spidey did use the occasional hang glider, it was made entirely on-the-spot with webbing, and nothing like this!
And here's a Spider-Man inflatable kite to round out this post... hope it doesn't warp your brain or anything like that!
