I don’t actively collect Captain Action, although I have in the past. I’ve got no real connection to it other than seeing a comic ad for it as a child in a back issue and wanting it. This set is the stuff of legend in the line. It’s tough as nails and well, beautiful. I’d own one if they weren’t so rare.
This one made me laugh, a bizarre bit of Dick Tracy Rack Toy merch. It seemed that everyone thought Dick Tracy would be as big as Batman, which didn’t get the merch it should have at the time. Not enough kids cared (I loved the little watch!) and the stuff just sat and sat. I remember visiting a “Zellers” in the mid-1990s, and they still had stacks of unsold cars. I bet if I travelled around my town and check out some variety stores, I may be able to find some Dick Tracy merch.
I wish I had these as a kid, sure they only last an afternoon, but what an afternoon!
Not gonna lie, I’d wear these now. I do actively buy this stuff
My friend Jason pointed this out to me, I’d heard rumour of this car but never sought it out. Yup, it’s a Hot Wheel with a Big Jim P.A.C.K logo on and of course, it’s a redline and therefor coveted by HW collectors. I bought one, so I guess that makes me a Hotwheel collector. *DEEP SIGH*
