Cool Stuff!

Fleeing the Cylon tyranny...

Yep, what you're looking at there is a Battlestar Galactica movie poster from Yugoslavia! More after the jump!

Have I showed a photo of Mego's Superman bendy on the card before?

Beyond the Time Barrier poster! I'll bet the actual movie doesn't look nearly as cool as the poster does...

No matter how you feel about the Buck Rogers TV series' writing, one has to admit that, like Glen Larson's other space opera Battlestar Galactica, the spaceships were pretty cool!

Comic Action Heroes Time! Here's what the back of the DC figure cards looked like!

Sadly, the Comic Action Heroes playsets never quite lived up to the promise on the art side of the box, did they? I mean, just look at the Batmobile, for starters! Mego always had issues making their Batmobiles at the right scale...

Comic Action Heroes Fortress of Solitude! Well, two problems with this... first of all, it's really the Hall of Justice, isn't it? Because (problem #2), if it's the Fortress of SOLITUDE, why is there a meeting table and chairs?

Here's the back side of the Marvel Comic Action Heroes! And below, a mini-gallery of some of the figures on the card:

And next, some Conquest of the Planet of the Apes stuff!

Yugoslavian poster!

And we'll wrap things up with a trio of posters for "Crack in the World"!

Next time around: DC stuff, with a few Marvel things added in here and there on the photos!

    It doesn't look anything like the poster, and it doesn't include any of the plot elements either, but it's pretty cool in its own way.
