Cool Stuff Week: Superman Stuff!

coolstuff
So, we're back... and I'm not really happy about the nearly two-week lack of posts here, but it couldn't really be helped... life happens, things get in the way, etc.

Anyway, I'm going to try to get at least a full week of posts in this time, and so I declare another "Cool Stuff Week"! Looks like a lot of Superman stuff this time around!

I loved the idea of the Giant Comics to Color books produced in the 1970s, even if some of them had kind of iffy plots or art. It doesn't look like the art was an issue with these two Superman volumes!

superman_gymbag
Next, this very neat Superman gym bag! I would've loved to have had this one!

superman_ironon
I suspect that this Superman iron-on S-shield was a cereal box prize, but I could well be wrong...

superman_italycarset
As I've noted many times before, sometimes foreign licensors of comics characters would produce some oddball stuff. Here's a Superman slot car set, and that's pretty oddball, if you ask me! It made sense for Batman, but not Superman!

superman_jointed2
Here's an item that was advertised a lot back in the 70s... here's the Superman jointed giant, there were others in the series as well, such as Batman, I believe a Wonder Woman one, Spider-Man, and even Galen from Planet of the Apes, among others!

superman_kiddiepaddlers
OK, so US licensors would do some weird stuff, too... Superman swimming goggles? I mean, I get that Aquaman wasn't that big a star back then, but come on!

superman_kryptongum
I don't ever remember seeing this anywhere...

superman_kryptoraygun
This Krypto Ray Gun was kind of similar to Kenner's much later Give-A-Show Projector, save that it was in a gun form. I'm guessing that the pictures you could project didn't tell a story.

superman_litewriter
Last month, I showed a comic book ad with a Cylon Lite-Writer, here's the Superman one!

superman_metropolisexpo
Here's a very cool poster for the Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL. While the Superman Museum may not have ended up as deluxe as originally planned, it's certainly got a lot of impressive items! It's connected to the city's comic book shop, just a stone's throw from the giant Superman statue!
