Cool Stuff: Spider-Man Stuff!
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!
Vintage 1960s Spider-Man Club Pin!
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!
The Corgi Spider-Man Buggy bore a remarkable resemblance to the Spider-Mobile, didn't it?
Corgi Spider-Man Motorcycle!
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?
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!
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?
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!
Spider-Man Drawing Machine! Just what the professional swipe artist needs, eh?
1970s Argentina Spider-Man action figure! Would've looked pretty cool if it'd been properly painted, methinks!
The Spider-Man Flying Web is pretty much nothing more than a flexible fabric Frisbee!
1976 Frametray Puzzle!
Frametray Puzzle Original Art!
1978 Freeze Pops!
Spidey Frisbee... well, Frisbee knockoff, anyway!
Gulliver Toys Green Goblin from South America!
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!
1975 Double-Sided Spidey T-Shirt!
Spidey Hero Head! Yeah, it's basically a Spidey version of Barrel of Monkeys...
Is it just me, or does anyone else think the Spider-Man Hop toy is a tad weird?
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!
This Spider-Man Intercom Set is pretty cool... a definite future-as-envisioned-by-the-late-1960s-and-1970s vibe to it, eh?
1960s Spidey Iron-On!
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!
