Cool Stuff Week, Day 2: More DC Stuff, Including Rare Style Guide Images!

coolstuff

Cool Stuff Week continues with more DC items!
dc_sign
From the early 1970s comes this two-color sign promoting DC's "Bigger and Better" comics!

dc_sp_all
And now we're moving on to Super Powers items, starting with this gallery of images, probably done for the Marketing department!
dc_sp_aquaman
dc_sp_batgirl
Kind of surprising to see Batgirl here, as they never did a Batgirl Super Powers figure!
dc_sp_batman
dc_sp_catwoman
Catwoman was also missing from the lineup, too!
dc_sp_flash
dc_sp_gl
dc_sp_greenarrow
dc_sp_group
Lots of characters on this poster that never made it into the toy lineup, such as Hawkgirl, Supergirl, Wonder Girl, Mary Marvel (note that neither Cap nor Junior made it onto this poster), Raven and Changeling!
dc_sp_group2
This one has Captain Marvel Junior, as well as other missing from the toy line characters as Black Canary, the Atom, Starfire, and Zatanna!
dc_sp_hawkman
dc_sp_joker
dc_sp_manhunter
dc_sp_robin
dc_sp_rollcall
dc_sp_shazam2
dc_sp_superman
dc_sp_superman2
dc_sp_supermanshazam
dc_sp_superwomen
dc_sp_ww
Imagine how epic the Super Powers line would've been if all these characters has been included, and the sculpts looked like these illustrations!

dc_sp_calendar
dc_sp_calendar2
Super Powers Calendar!

dc_sp_sign
Not sure what this sign was for... maybe it was for some Super Powers item available I've not seen before!

dc_sp_stockingstuffersign
I had no idea that Shell gas stations were selling the figures... and I'll bet this was what the sign above was promoting! $1.99 for Super Powers figures? Even back then it was a major deal!

dc_sp_ww_watch
Super Powers Wonder Woman watch!

dc_sprayandplay1
dc_sprayandplay2
dc_sprayandplay3
I kind of dig the minimalist art style on this Spray and Play set!

dc_standups1
dc_standups2
I've said it before, and I'll say it again... DC really should consider reissuing these Super Hero Standups!

dc_stickers
Stickers!

dc_styleguide_aquaman
Now begins a bunch of DC Style Guide images! The book these came from is a highly sought-after collectible, but some unscrupulous people sell each of the pages by themselves, instead of selling the book as a complete item! Still, it did supply these images for me to share with you! The Super Powers ones above probably came from this book.
