France’s Pin Pin Toys carried a ton of products from Mego and AHI but also made their own products like this pretty non-descript water gun. The Fantastic Four are huge in France and well, that seems totally deserved.
I always really appreciate Super Heroe merchandise that uses it’s own artwork. It happens so rarely now but look at this fun cover, it’s gorgeous and hey, it’s all the movie Spideys.
Oh look, childhood happiness. I still have the Robin I’ve had my entire life, there are marvel versions too and BarbaPappas!
My pal Ed posted this on the Mego Museum forums and I mean, it’s incredible. It’s the officially licensed Game of Operation but instead of a nude guy we get Henshin Cyborg. This is fortified awesome.
Derry Daring was Evel Knievel but for girls, it makes sense I’m sure lots of girls wanted to play with that stunt set. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a carded figure before and I am in love with the artwork. This is really awesome.
I love comic book Sleeping bags especially ones where Superman is burping and beating up Marlon Brando from “The Wild One.”
Weird Tarzan figures like this are the Faberge egg of my house. I’ve got them everywhere, I can’t resist them!
Clipper was the Netherlands distributor for Kenner products (we have a Clipper catalog here) and I just really love the packaging on this wonderful toy.
I loved Super Hero stamps as a kid and completely forget they were a thing. It did not give me a life long love of stamps but I think they’re incredible and wish i had to money.
These were 3D hobby sets introduced in 1976 by Colorforms and the brain child of toy inventory Mel Birnkrant. If you want to read more about them, read Mel’s story on them and then enjoy his incredible website.
