Cool Stuff Week, Day 3: Moon Zero Two, Mork, Marvel Stuff, and Pepsi Caps from Argentina!
Opening up today's installment on Cool Stuff Week is this handful of stills from Moon Zero One!

Next up, here's the Mork action figure with talking space pack! I always wanted one of these (I was a big fan of Mork & Mindy), but never got one... of course, a few summers ago, my daughter finds a Barbie doll wearing Ork's spacesuit at a yard sale! Took some doing to get her to part with it...
Speaking of Mork, here's a Mork Halloween costume!
Talking plush Mork toy!
Now, for some Marvel items. First up is this Marvel Superheroes Bumper Sticker!
One of the sad things about this Captain America Cosmic Light Gun (aside from the fact that it has nothing to do with Cap, and that one of his sleeves got miscolored red on the card) is that there's nothing about the gun that even says Captain America once you've got it off the card... Well, wait a minute... it's obscured by the flash (eBay users don't always take into account glare when doing their photos), but I thin I can barely make out the words "Captain America" on the handle, so presumably there's a small Cap figure printed on the handle, too.
Captain America Giant Story Coloring Book!
Cap Marx Marvel Superhero Tricycle! One of the most oddball Marvel items of the 1960s, to be sure!
Dr. Doom and Thing Halloween masks! My understanding is these were made and sold outside of the USA.
Fly Avengers Fly Iron Man, Thor and Vision toys!
One can only guess as to the contents of these Superhero Gift Packs! I mean, 10 Marvel comics? Which ones could they have been?
Well, here's what one of them had. As you can see, the corners have a diamond logo with the price and issue number, although there is also a UPC code... My guess is that these tended to vary from one pack to the next, and were probably packaged like the three comics for 99 cent bags you used to see at some stores.
Hulk Lollipops? Yes, they were a thing, for however short a period that was. I'm not sure why they didn't just go with flavors that would've fit green... green apple, grape, and lime!
Marvel Flyers again! I think this may have been all the packages.
Marvel Stickers from the late 1960s!
Marvel Superhero Stickers, probably from the early 80s!
Ben Cooper Thor Halloween Costume!
How about a selection of collectible Pepsi Caps from Argentina to wrap up today's post?
