So I'm doing something different for this year's Christmas Countdown... rather than posting Christmas comics, I'm going back through the archives of my Cool Stuff photos and reposting those items that -- if I had the money to afford them and space to properly display them -- I'd love to have in my collection! Let's begin!
Even though today we have so much available online or on DVD to watch, I still have fond memories of watching 8mm movies at my local library every Saturday during the summer months back when I was a child. If I had the money to do it, I'd get a projector and amass a collection of these movies, and I think I'd even start sponsoring some film festivals at my community's clubhouse to show them every few months! Heck, I'd probably invite some of my geek friends from outside the community to come, too!
Goofy as they were, I'd love to have a complete set of AHI's Action Apemen!
You can well believe there would be a LOT of classic Aurora model kits in my collection, although I think I'd have to find someone very good at building and painting them to do the assembly for me!
I would definitely want a complete set of all of AHI's various Batmobile toys, of which these are only a few!
Here's some other Batmobiles I want!
This is one of the variations on the Batmobile Duncan made. I have one that's got more color to it than this one, but this would be a nice addition!
For many Batmobile collectors, this one is the "Holy Grail" -- the Aurora slot car Batmobile! I used to have this when I was a kid, and have no idea what happened to it over the years.
There's not too many non-Batmobile Batman items on my want list, but the Remco Energized Batman (as well as the other characters in that line) are items I'd love to have! Below is the Captain America one:
I don't know what I'd use this for, but it would be cool to have...
Something about this Color And Play set just appeals to me!
I'd love to have all of the various Superhero Stamps they came out with!
This set of Flash Gordon figures from Mattel would certainly be welcomed, given their being based on the Filmation series.
I'd love to have one of these, just because I don't think anyone I know would see it and know it for what it was!
I really need a set of the Marx Marvel Superheroes!
A complete set of the Major Matt Mason toys would be lovely to have!
I don't know how good a game this Monkees board game is, but I'd love to have it!
Not great likenesses on this handpuppet, but I'd still like to own one!
More of the Best of Cool Stuff Christmas Countdown tomorrow!
