OK, now for some other items that aren't Super Powers comics!

Here's a Remco Supercar toy, based on the Gerry Anderson TV series!

Next, a few Mexican Superman comics... or rather, Superboy comics! These were both apparently produced in the 1970s, although you might recognize that second one as one of the first (if not the first) Krypto stories!

Ah, once again, I have to wonder why so many cool comics-related items are made south of the US border... I mean, look at the range of characters on the above Mexican super-hero watches! Oh, sure, they are probably just novelty watches, like you'd give away as party favors at a kids' birthday party, but they're still cool!

We'll wrap up this installment with a collection of Hasbro's Super Joe line, which was their attempt to keep the GI Joe line going at a different scale (the cost of plastics at the time was driving action figure scales down, with Kenner's Star Wars line being the first prominent example of the impact).
