Cool Stuff: Zorro, 3rd Eye, Buscemi, and Other Marvel Stuff!
Okay, you've (hopefully) read three days of musings on Dragon Ball Z, as well as a day on Agents of SHIELD, how about a good-sized edition of "Cool Stuff" to finish up the week?
And we're starting out with this Mark of Zorro Mexican lobby card, but wait, there's more after the jump!
Next, we have this wonderful promotional poster for The Third Eye's Marvel Superheroes black light posters!
Here's a pair of Marvel posters by John Buscemi!
Next, here's the cover of the November, 1965 issue of The California Pelican, cover-featuring Spider-Man and the Hulk, via some badly-traced drawings!
Next, here's a Captain America bop bag... and I always feel like the bop bags shouldn't ever have a good guy on them... why would you want to hit Captain America?
Captain America Super Hero Club button!
Captain America button art!
Here's a foreign sticker or standee of Captain America!
Serial lobby cards!
If you don't recognize the Captain America movie from these Mexican lobby cards, then that just means you didn't see the CBS TV-movie, which was shown in theaters in Mexico!
Captain America poster!
I've got two issues with this Captain America slide puzzle: First of all, the seller couldn't be bothered to solve it before taking a picture. Secondly, they colored Cap's arms flesh tone instead of keeping them white!
Awesome Cap poster by Steranko, which I believe was used as the cover for a Marvel Index!
Here's another Cap poster by Steranko!
Classic Cap T-shirt!
Captain America logo patches!
Captain America Gulliver figure from South America!
And now, some Marvel cards from 1966!
Marvel party centerpiece!
1970 Comic Art Convention poster!
Conan book and record set!
Conan TGACHAE Button!
I really dig this FF drinking glass, and if I could find one that the colors weren't faded on, I'd buy it!
I remember seeing this Fantastic Four gum advertised in the comics... I never understood why they chose the colors they did! I'm thinking it should've been Blueberry for Mr. Fantastic, Lemon for the Invisible Girl (since they probably can't do clear bubble gum), Cherry or Strawberry for the Torch, and Orange for the Thing!
Here's the back of the package... if they'd had different pictures on different packs, they might've had something here!
Promo picture for the 1960s Hanna-Barbera FF cartoon!
Awesome FF mirror!
FF origin poster!
Promo poster for the 1970s FF cartoon!
This FF wrist signal sender just shows how bad it was for FF rack toys... I mean, why not have a pull-and-go Fantasti-Car?
By the time this set of Thing Underoos came out, they'd gone far away from the original concept, and were getting cheap on us! Dammit, the Thing Underoos should've had his skin pattern on the shirt, and the underwear should've been blue with a black waistband!
Next, here's three out of the four Fly Avengers Fly toys!
This is probably the most complete set of photos I've been a
ble to assemble of the 1960s Marvel Flyers... a lot of characters that don't fly there, aren't there?
Here's the original art for one of the Marvel Funnies that came with a stick of gum!
This poster repurposed the art for the Marvel's Greatest Battles trade paperback!
A couple of Gulliver figures from South America!
Hulk animation pencil, signed by Herb Trimpe!
Hulk stunt plane!
Hulk animation cel, probably from the Marvel Super-Heroes cartoon!
Hulk Hallowen costumes!
In the 1970s, these cheap plastic gloves were the closest we got to Hulk hands!
Hulk license plate!
Hulk origin poster!
Hulk Paint N Puff set!
Hulk Palitoy action figure! Palitoy had the license for the Mego stuff overseas.
Hulk portfolio plates!
Hulk Pocket Hero!
Hulk Hand Puppet!
Hulk super-hero stamps!
Iron Man Super-Hero stamps!
Iron Man Pennant!
These are either iron-ons or temporary tattoos!
Avengers poster by Jack Kirby!
Lazer Blazers stickers!
Marvel Marches On poster!
If you were a member of the Merry Marvel Marching Society, you might've gotten this Marvel Messenger newsletter!
This was either a promo poster or the cover of a licensing catalog.
Super Hero Notes!
And finally, here's a page from an old Ohio Arts (creators of Etch-A-Sketch) advertising a Marvel toy I've never seen pictures of! Anyone recognize these things?
