As lover of both Planet of the Apes and Rack Toys, this is very alluring. However it’s rarity and price tag make me realize all it is are some planes on a pretty card. It’s a conundrum that sounds weird to anybody who doesn’t collect.
Oh wow this is just such a perfect moment in time for me. I swear I taste cherry slush puppies when I see them. I’m close to completing my set from various dollar bins over the decades.
I collect school supplies, it sounds kind of boring, and I won’t pretend it isn’t there. I remember being completely mystified by the display of these as a kid. I took home the Batman in the series, it felt like I was getting a toy and that feeling never left I guess.
If you’re unfamiliar with this production, it was a stage show featuring Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman and the Looney Tunes characters. There were actually a couple of different versions of the show as well. Anyway, I plan on doing some extensive coverage in my next book Mall of Justice. This colouring book doubled as a souvenir program and has some fun colour photos inside.
As a kid obsessed with Presto Magix (as opposed to now being an adult obsessed with them) I would have lost my mind seeing this. Five Superhero sets in one and a mingling of the houses of DC and Marvel. That’s going to make for a very quiet and productive afternoon.
Hey next week I’m going to be at Power-Con in the Mego Meet area. I’ll also be giving a panel with some other toy magazine and book publishers. It would be really great if you’re in the area to stop in and say hi. I’ll be in the Mego Meet area.
Mego Meet 2023 will become part of Power-Con August 11-13 in Columbus, Ohio. Greater Columbus Convention Center
400 North High Street
Columbus, Ohio 43215
