Cool Stuff!

For those of you who were waiting for this post just for the GI Joe items, I'm afraid these two coloring/activity books are it! For those of you curious as to what else I have in store for you today... follow the jump!

giveashow69_hb_sears
Obviously, a few Give-A-Show sets to show here... I have a copy of this 1969 set with all Hanna-Barbera slides... but this Sears exclusive with 8 additional slides? That intrigues me... I would guess that it's eight slides from a different set, but it's possible Kenner created eight original slide strips just for Sears!

This may be a set that I either don't own, or own but am missing a strip or two from!

giveashow_80sknockoffthomas
It may be ridiculous of me to think so, but since I have not seen this 1980s Give-A-Show Projector knock-off featuring Thomas the Tank Engine since I grabbed this photo, I've been almost obsessing over buying this toy, for my collection of toys similar to the G-A-S Projector... sad, isn't it?

giveashow_stingrayslides
Here's a couple of loose Stingray slides from the Chad Valley Stingray Give-A-Show Projector set, along with a record!

giveashow_sw_newzealand
Just for grins, here's the New Zealand (and presumably Australian?) edition of the Kenner Star Wars Give-A-Show Projector set!

giveashow_talkingshow1_1971
A while back, I posted a photo of the Talking Show Projector...
giveashow_talkingshow2
...but this time, I have a photo of the projector itself, opened up so you can see what it looked like!

So, that's probably enough Give-A-Show stuff for a while... how about some Green Hornet stuff?

greenhornet_magicslates

greenhornet_radiosremco
Green Hornet Wrist Radios! Hey, wait a minute, those look like the Dick Tracy Wrist Radios Remco did, just with a different color plastic and different labels!

Invaders From Mars advertisement that appeared in Life Magazine!

lancelotlink_thermos

laughin_pencilcaselaughin_pencilcase2
Is that a Laugh-In Pencil Case? You bet your sweet bippy it is!

loneranger_argentinasquirtg.JPG
Lone Ranger squirt gun from Argentina!

loneranger_auroralkitbox

megosign1
megosign2
The seller of these claimed they were Mego "signs," but looking at these photos again, it looks like they're part of the in-store display boxes for the classic Mego figures!

mightycrusaders_highcamptpb.jpg
I used to have a copy of this book, with reprints from the 1960s revival of the MLJ superheroes!

movieviewer_sneakpreviews.jpg
Check out these Sneak Previews movie viewer cartridges! I didn't realize this had come out that far into the home video revolution!

Some of you are probably aware that I'm kind of obsessed with all the pre-home video toys that were so popular, especially in the 1970s...

Well, I think that'll do it for this edition of Cool Stuff! Wow, this was really all over the place, wasn't it? Next time around, we'll look at Marvel goodies!
