Cool Stuff: Spider-Man Stuff!

spidey_cartoonviewer1
This installment of Cool Stuff (and my last regular post for June of 2011) begins with a surprise to me... I honestly had no idea until I came across this photo on eBay that there had been a Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends cartridge for the Fisher-Price Movie Viewer!

spidey_clubpin
Vintage 1960s Spider-Man Club Pin!

spidey_coloringmanwolf
This coloring book, as you'll no doubt notice, incorrectly identifies the Man-Wolf as the Wolfman! Especially odd since Marvel was the publisher of this book, if I'm not mistaken!

spidey_corgibuggy
The Corgi Spider-Man Buggy bore a remarkable resemblance to the Spider-Mobile, didn't it?

spidey_corgimotorcycle.JPG
Corgi Spider-Man Motorcycle!

spidey_corgispiderbike
Corgi also did a different Spider-Bike with a figure to ride it! And you thought AHI was the only company who made excessive Spider-Man vehicles?

spidey_corgispidervan
Here's the last of the Corgi items for this time... way too tempting to not say it, so I will... it's the Amazing Spider-Van!

spidey_corkgun
Given the graphics used for this cork gun, it would appear to be of 1960s vintage! Let's see... MCMLXXIV would be what, 1974, if I'm translating the Roman numerals correctly! Well, we can't forget to mention the goofy handcuffs that came with this, can we?

spidey_dartset
Didn't I post a photo of this dart set earlier this month? Well, if so, at least this is a better photo of it!

spidey_drawingmachine
Spider-Man Drawing Machine! Just what the professional swipe artist needs, eh?

spidey_figure_argentina70s
1970s Argentina Spider-Man action figure! Would've looked pretty cool if it'd been properly painted, methinks!

spidey_flashlight
Spidey Flashlight!

spidey_flyingweb
The Spider-Man Flying Web is pretty much nothing more than a flexible fabric Frisbee!

spidey_frametray
Frametray Puzzle!

spidey_frametray76.JPG
1976 Frametray Puzzle!

spidey_frametrayart
Frametray Puzzle Original Art!

spidey_freezepop78
1978 Freeze Pops!

spidey_frisbee
Spidey Frisbee... well, Frisbee knockoff, anyway!

spidey_goblin_gulliver
Gulliver Toys Green Goblin from South America!

spidey_gulliver1spidey_gulliver2
The two different Spidey figures above from Gulliver Toys seem to be influenced by the Nicholas Hammond/CBS TV series, given the shiny silver belt and wristband for the web-shooter!

spidey_herecomesshirt1
spidey_herecomesshirt2
1975 Double-Sided Spidey T-Shirt!

spidey_heroheads
Spidey Hero Head! Yeah, it's basically a Spidey version of Barrel of Monkeys...

spidey_hop1
Is it just me, or does anyone else think the Spider-Man Hop toy is a tad weird?

spidey_idset
I suppose that's no weirder than this I.D. Set, which was no doubt produced featuring any character the manufacturer could get licensing rights to!

spidey_intercom
This Spider-Man Intercom Set is pretty cool... a definite future-as-envisioned-by-the-late-1960s-and-1970s vibe to it, eh?

spidey_ironon60s
1960s Spidey Iron-On!

spidey_jumpups
And we'll end up this installment with the Spidey Jump-Up! I've had toys like this one... you press it down so the suction cup sticks to the base. When the cup gives way, the spring causes it to pop up into the air! When I was a wee lad, my family had this kind of thing, but it was frogs, not Spider-Man (more's the pity).

More Spidey next time!
