Cool Stuff!

You know, I do have to remember that not everyone who reads this blog has been readers for a long time... so I'm going to try to introduce some of the regular features for those who've recently joined us here at the Random Acts of Geekery! "Cool Stuff" is a feature that appears here every two to four days or so, and features photos of stuff that I've found offered for sale on eBay that I thought you guys would be interested in seeing... usually licensed product, like superhero toys, or Planet of the Apes stuff, for example, but anything that catches my interest could appear here -- plus cool sci-fi and other movie posters (I have a regular Monday feature, "Monster Mondays," that focuses just on the monster-related collectibles). I don't have any of these items for sale (at least, I didn't at the time I'm writing this post), and I can't guarantee that any of these are available on eBay right now or will be in the near future... but if you decide there's something I've shown here that you absolutely have to have, and you track it down somehow, I'd love to hear about it!

And of course, if any of these things bring back fond memories for you, feel free to share those in the comments, too! Heck, if you have a better photo of something I'm showing here, feel free to send that to me, too!

OK, let's begin with the continuance of Superman items:

These are kind of neat flicker "coins" that were sold in 1983 or so, apparently -- but I know I certainly never saw one!

superman_flyingbingo

Have I shown a photo of this "Flying Bingo" game before, or am I getting mixed up with the posts I've written for the Fortress of Solitude Trophy Room?

superman_magnetictarget.jpg

Here's a magnetic target game... I'm guessing that's supposed to be Luthor at the top, but who the heck are the rest of the guys supposed to be???

superman_miscstuff.JPG

Nice mix of stuff here, eh?

superman_molemenposter.JPG

I suspect that the poster for Superman and the Mole Men was touched up a bit before publication...

superman_pendant.JPG

The item of most interest here (to me, at least) is the Superman pendant... I may have better photos of this in my files somewhere!

superman_ponchomego.jpg

Just how fun could this "Fun Poncho" be, anyway? I don't know why Ben Cooper used to insist on including masks with their Superman items...

No, I wasn't going to say anything about the Mego Superman who's missing his insignia.

superman_printputty.jpg

Looks like lots of great Curt Swan art on this Superman Print Putty, obviously a Silly Putty knockoff!

superman_stardustpaint.jpg

I don't think I can say anything more than you can already figure out about this looking at the photo, eh?

superman_superbaby.JPG

"Hi! I'm Baby Superman!" Really? I think not, as the Man of Steel had black hair even as a Baby of Steel. They similarly made Baby Batman with blonde hair, I don't know why.

Here's one of those items that I really hope that, someday, I'll be able to afford...

superman_superboygame4.JPG

It's just a supplementary set of photos to ones I had before, with this two-games-in-one item, because this was an improvement to the photos I had the first time around!

More Superman stuff next time, and maybe some non-Superman stuff!

  1. I could be wrong but something about those faces in the magnetic target game reminds me of teh sixties SUPERMAN cartoons so I'm wondering if they appeared in them.
