Time for some cool stuff, and I think this may be all Spidey stuff, beginning with this original art from a Spider-Man coloring book! Oh, one non-Spidey thing, this poster for The Spider Returns! But here we go, with this 1973 Spider-Man coin/medallion! 1970s Spidey Eraser! 1978 Spidey Bank! 1978 Knickerbocker plush Spidey! Spidey Home Movie! This Spidey Action Pack is something I'd never seen before! The idea that you'd be role-playing Peter Parker is unusual, isn't it? The AHI Spider-Man Buggy is probably the closest toy to the Spider-Mobile we eversaw! Spidey Parachutist! RC boat, just like the one Spidey never used in the comics! Spin-Out Car, just like the one Spidey never used in the comics! Water Gun, just like the one Spidey... oh, never mind! Argentina Glider! Buddy L Spider-Copter! Car and Boat Trailer! You know, I've made light of how Italian posters for monster movies are way, way off... but damn, they made great costumes for kids! I've posted their FF uniform before, and here's their Spidey costume, and isn't that just way better than what Ben Cooper did? Drawing Machine! Figural Record! This mini cup came out of a vending machine! Spidey Hand! Italian Flying Spider-Man Figure! Hmm, that kind of puts them back in the "mock this stuff" category again, doesn't it? Italian Target Game -- and Spidey's the target?!?!? Key Ring and License Plate! Light Pistol! Mego poster! Paint and Puff Set! Ben Cooper Play Suit! Pop-Up Book! This must've been some kind of foreign post card, eh? Richochet Racers set! Spider-Copter! Should I just go ahead and start up with the "Just like Spidey used in the comics" joke again, or just let it go? Remco Sting-Ray Gun! Buddy L Secret Wars Remote Control Racer! Switchplate! Spider-Man Train -- sorry, I can't resist -- just like the one he had in the comics! And we'll finish off this all-Spidey installment with this poster, which you could get with your Marvel Value Stamps!
