Cool Stuff!

sh_bat_captam_puppets.jpg
This time around, Cool Stuff begins with these Batman and Captain America hand puppets! I believe Batman is from around 1966, while Cap is from the mid 1970s. Batman was definitely the most successful one here, eh?

Well, I thought I had more assorted superheroes stuff, but obviously I don't! So here's a movie viewer toy from Japan, and I believe that's one of the giant robots there known to US toy collectors as a Shogun Warrior, although I forget his name!

sixmillion_movieviewer.jpg
Here's a Kenner movie viewer featuring the Six Million Dollar Man!

space_nasaspacecontrol60s.jpg
How about some vintage space toys? Above is one called the NASA Space Control, and it's from the 1960s.

space_spacewarshootgallery.jpg
You'd think by the name "Space War" that this dart gun shooting gallery game was from the 1970s, and intended to get some of the Star Wars money, but the box and toy design definitely look 1960s to me!

space_starforcehelmet.jpg
The Star Force space helmet walkie talkie definitely was cashing in on Star Wars!

Hey! This Space Viewer Picture Gun toy looks like a repackaged Superman Krypto-Ray Gun with different labels and film!

speedracer_japantoy5.jpg
Here's kind of an odd-looking Speed Racer toy from Japan, almost like a Micro-Machines toy! I'm not sure why the "M" on the hood is replaced with a giant version of the robot bird!

speedracer_mac5diecastjapan.JPG
Here's a diecast Mach 5 from Japan, and I wish I had one -- in better shape, of course, but I'd be happy with this one!

speedracer_mach5model.jpg
Japanese Mach 5 Model Kit!

Time for Spider-Man stuff! First up is this 1960s pin!

spidey_fisherpricemoviecart.JPG
Fisher Price Movie Viewer cartridge with Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends!

spidey_frametray.JPG
Frame-Tray puzzle!

spidey_hangglider.JPG
Spidey Hang Glider! I'm actually kind of okay with this one, as Spidey's been known to web up a hang glider of sorts now and then.

spidey_idealpuppet.jpg
Spider-Man 1960s puppet by Ideal!

spidey_medallion1
spidey_medallion2
Spider-Man Medallion from the 1970s! Just in case some of you have never seen one at all, other than in the comic ad.

spidey_movieposter
Next up, it's a poster for the Spider-Man movie! No, not the Toby Maguire (or however the heck you spell his name) one, the CBS-TV one starring Nicholas Hammond! I guess it received some limited theatrical release in the USA (I know episodes were shown in theaters in Mexico).

spidey_poweralbum.jpg
Next, it's the record "Spider-Man and Friends," which is really all the original three Marvel book and record sets Power Records produced (it was missing the Hulk one). I wonder how many kids were disappointed to only find one Spider-Man adventure on this record? Also, note the Power Records logo on the record, as well as the picture of the Hulk, but the album cover has the Peter Pan Records logo!

Spidey ring from Argentina!

spidey_wipeoffboard.JPG
I'm guessing this was basically a dry-erase board?

st_ahikirkparachutist.JPG
AHI Captain Kirk Parachutist, so you can re-enact that famous episode of Star Trek where Captain Kirk parachuted from the Enterprise to the surface of a planet!

st_bookandrecord.jpg
Star Trek Book and Record Set!

st_bridgemodelamt.JPG
One of my favorite AMT models, the Star Trek Enterprise Bridge kit! I built at least two of these, although mine never looked this good!

Star Trek Colorforms!

st_enterprisemodelrocket.JPG
Enterprise Flying Model Rocket! I wanted this thing so badly... never got it, naturally!

Ideal's Star Trek board game!

st_kirkbank.JPG
Captain Kirk bank! No idea who manufactured this, although it could've been Mego.

st_megophaserbattle.JPG
Mego Star Trek Phaser Battle game!

We'll start with more Star Trek stuff next time around!
