Well, friends, this was supposed to post two days ago... It's Cool Stuff time again! Let's see what I have for you this go-round!
First up, this Flash Gordon book, published by Dell, was intended to compete with Whitman's Big Little Books. Eventually, there were Flash Gordon BLBs, as Dell's line didn't last (and they kind of became part of Whitman more or less anyway, but that was some time later).
Yes, it's another Argentina pinball game, this time featuring Forbidden Planet! But that's not all they did in Argentina...
...there were tops, too, and probably more!
This Frankenstein "Creepy Creatures" Puzzle was not made by someone with the Universal license! It also didn't make it into my "Monster Stuff" file, either!
Here's a wind-up Frankenstein toy that also didn't make it into the correct folder!
I hope you're not tired of the Argentina pinball games and tops yet, because above we've got those for The Greatest American Hero...
...and here's some for Battlestar Galactica!
I used to think that the ID set that came out with Galactica card art and logo was the toy that was furthest away from the TV show, but I think this medic kit wins the prize!
Apparently, although the TV show only lasted one season (to be revived as Galactica 1980), the books must've sold well enough so that by the time G'80 came along, the book series had to convert over to that continuity!
Galactica watch set! I wonder if it measures time in sectons?
Here's another of those Argentina things... a plastic ring with The Girl from UNCLE!
Given my obsession for toys like the Give-A-Show Projector, you'd think I'd have bid on this "Around the World Slide Projector"... but I didn't, and I've never seen one offered since!
Oh, here's some more photos in the wrong folder... this "Csybot Godzilla" page was a promo for Godzilla 1985, believe it or not!
Godzilla 2000 still!
This Godzilla lamp is way too cool!
Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla Thai poster!
Ah, we're back to non-monster stuff again! Here's a Green Hornet agent pin!
Corgi toy of the Black Beauty!
Hornet Society Pins!
Well, this Hawkman sticker from Argentina should've run with the DC stuff in the last Cool Stuff post...
Atom Ant puzzle!
Squeeze toy of Jonny Quest's faithful dog, Bandit, made in Argentina!
One banana, two banana, three banana, four... Banana Splits posters, that is!
Yes, here's more of those Argentina-exclusive items, this time featuring the Impossibles!
And here's a Jonny Quest item from Argentina!
We're back to domestic stuff with this Penelope Pitstop watch!
I believe this is original art to one of Whitman's Space Ghost frame-tray puzzles!
Space Ghost costume!
Banana Splits puzzle!
And we'll wrap this up with these Wacky Races Argentina wristbands!
