Cool Stuff: Superman Stuff!

SUPERMAN PISTOLA
First up in this parade of Superman cool stuff is this Superman "Pistola," which I believe was made in Italy. What's really unusual about this item is that it appears to be the same water gun that AHI produced as a Batman squirt gun, but with a Superman S-shield on it -- even though I don't ever recall seeing an AHI Superman squirt gun!

Next, here's Parker Brothers' Superman III board game, which has to be more entertaining than the movie was!

1940s Superman coloring book! I really wish I had this book to show off in a Children's Book Theatre entry!

1976 Ben Cooper Superman costume! Note the various inaccuracies... at least it doesn't have a picture of Superman on the chest and the word "Superman"!

superman_77wiltoncakecdecor
1977 Wilton Superman cake decoration! This was one of a pair of faces (the other being Batman) that was sold with a figural cake pan, so you could use it as either character. I believe they also did the chest emblems in plastic, too.

superman_actiontumbler
I'm guessing this Superman in Action tumbler was made in the 1950s or early 1960s, but I could well be wrong!

superman_ahiparachutist
AHI Superman parachutist! Not only was this a bizarre choice for a parachutist figure (unless you were playing "Superman visits Kandor"), some of AHI's parachutist figures were even stranger -- like Mr. Spock, the Hulk, Galen and Dr. Zaius from Planet of the Apes!

Brazil Superman coloring book! I don't know if this was reprinted from a US coloring book or not, but doesn't it have nicer than average artwork?

More Superman stuff next time!
