Cool Stuff!

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!
flashgordon_dellbook
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).

forbiddenplanet_argentinapinball
Yes, it's another Argentina pinball game, this time featuring Forbidden Planet! But that's not all they did in Argentina...
forbiddenplanet_tops
...there were tops, too, and probably more!

frankenstein_creepycreaturespuzzle
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!

frankenstein_windup
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...

galactica_argentinapinball
galactica_argentinapinball2
galactica_argentinatops
...and here's some for Battlestar Galactica!

galactica_medickit
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!

galactica_novel
galactica_novel5
galactica_novel8
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_partyware
Galactica partyware!

galactica_watchset
Galactica watch set! I wonder if it measures time in sectons?

girlfromuncle_argentinaring
Here's another of those Argentina things... a plastic ring with The Girl from UNCLE!

giveashow_aroundtheworldslideprojector
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!

godzilla1985_csybotgodzilla
Oh, here's some more photos in the wrong folder... this "Csybot Godzilla" page was a promo for Godzilla 1985, believe it or not!

godzilla2000_still
Godzilla 2000 still!

godzilla_lamp1
godzilla_lamp2
This Godzilla lamp is way too cool!

godzillavsmechag_thai
Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla Thai poster!

greenhornet_agentpin
Ah, we're back to non-monster stuff again! Here's a Green Hornet agent pin!

greenhornet_corgi
Corgi toy of the Black Beauty!

greenhornet_societypin
Hornet Society Pins!

hawkman_argentinasticker
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!

Yes, here's more of those Argentina-exclusive items, this time featuring the Impossibles!

hb_jqargentinawristband
And here's a Jonny Quest item from Argentina!

hb_PenelopeWatch
We're back to domestic stuff with this Penelope Pitstop watch!

hb_SpaceGhostArt-Monster
I believe this is original art to one of Whitman's Space Ghost frame-tray puzzles!

hb_SpaceGhostCost1
hb_SpaceGhostCost2
hb_SpaceGhostCost5
Space Ghost costume!

hb_splitspuzzle
Banana Splits puzzle!
