I have got to start collecting these things (and figure out how to do scans of 'em to share)... My curiosity about some of these Marvel sets is driving me mad, I tell you, MAAAAD!
OK, I'm better now.
My understanding is that the "Magic Eyes" system by Tru-Vue was originally a competitor to View-Master, but then the companies either merged or one bought out the other (I see the GAF logo on this one, and remember hearing "GAF View-Master", so I'm suspecting it was a merger). It seems that nearly all the Magic Eyes sets were reissued as View-Master discs.
You know, I remember some cereal box toys of the Wacky Racers cars, but I sure as heck don't remember model kits! This was very well-done...
...compared to this friction car, which doesn't resemble the Compact Pussycat at all!
I haven't shown one of these French Foto-Novel covers for a while... this one is When Worlds Collide!
Here's some Zeroids, which are so cool I don't have to say anything about them!
Hey, that's the end of Volume 6 of my Cool Stuff files, but this isn't a long enough post yet! So let's finish this up with the first bunch of photos from Volume 7, featuring 2001: A Space Odyssey!
Here's some Italian lobby cards:

Next time: 7th Voyage of Sinbad! The Adventures of Captain Marvel! And maybe some other stuff!
