Cool Stuff!

And this time around, Cool Stuff begins with a poster for a movie I don't think I'd ever heard of before... any of you ever saw this one?

Next, a few puppets based on H.R. Pufnstuff...
First, it's Blinky...
...and here's Orson!

Next, this insert poster for Queen of Outer Space... did Zsa Zsa do any other genre stuff outside of this one?

Red Planet Mars poster!

Remco Rocket Cannon toy! My, how things change...

Up next: Return of the Jedi stuff!
Lobby cards!


Robinson Crusoe on Mars lobby cards!

Rocketship X-M Poster!

Next, an unusual Mexican version of a DC Comic... obviously it's (well, the cover feature, at any rate) is Jerry Lewis... and the title... "Romances Juveniles"? Well, it's literally translates to "Youthful Romances," which is an odd title for a Jerry Lewis comic, innit?

Had to show you guys this packaging from a 1960s Kenner See-A-Show set... as I may have mentioned before, the See-A-Show was intended to compete with View-Master, although instead of using a disc format, Kenner used a card format with straightforward printing, no film used at all! You may have seen some videos based on these on the Give-A-Show Blog, and they'll show up here someday, too!

Here's another one that features the Marvel characters only... both of these sets go for pretty high prices!

Now, this is an unusual find... a sheet of Our Way stickers featuring both DC and Marvel characters! I'd seen them separated by company, but never on the same sheet!

I had to share this photo of the in-store display of superhero pens because of the range of time the art came from!

The Shadow Strikes poster!

Hey, it's been a while since I posted anything Shogun Warriors, eh? Here's a Japanese 8mm home movie kit that included a Mazinger/Mazinga cartridge!

Here's a mask of Mazinga!

And another Mazinga mask, although with differnt paint!

Been a while since I posted anything Bionic here, too... here's a Bionic Woman model kit!

Bionic Woman bank!

Six Milllion Dollar Man Portacommunicator!

Hey, how about a Super Powers comic to wrap this up?

And the next installment will have at least one more of those!


  1. AH, Prehistoric Women aka Slave Girls, starring the criminally-underused Bond Girl Martine Beswick (one of the few to appear twice in the series).
    Had the VHS of this, and when I got a multi-region dvd player, Slave Girls was the first UK dvd I popped in!

  2. Whoaa...stumpled across your blog via Don Yowp's blog... this is so freakin' cool. Thanks for putting this up...I love this stuff !!! My 6 years old again !!!

  3. Britt - well, at least one reader's seen the movie!

    Marty - Welcome to the blog! I hope you've got the time to read through the archives... nearly 5,000 posts at this point!

  4. Jon,
    Re: "a poster for a movie I don't think I'd ever heard of before... any of you ever saw this one?"

    Add me to the list. This one's Hammer's followup to 1966's One Million Years B. C. There are no dinosaurs in this one though (IIRC), so I guess when its box office didn't perform as hoped they brought them back for 1970's When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth.

    Re: "This film is scientifically authentic"
    Well, I knew Robinson Crusoe on Mars wasn't accurate when the Martian ships from George Pal's 1953 War of the Worlds showed up! Others might have complained about the amount of oxygen on Mars, or the presence of liquid water?
