I’m an ardent fan of the Remco Utility belt and breaker of at least two. While the quality varied from character to character, this Wonder Woman set was particularly great; every girl on my street had one.
Speaking of Remco, although the pre-bankrupt version was the king of slapping labels on their existing toys. The Astro-Train is the stuff of legend and was only spoken of in whispers in the pre-Internet days. Now it’s $350 on eBay, out of instinct I almost went for it, but it’s not really a Star Trek toy.
As much as I don’t really dig Lidsville, this is the only Charles Nelson Reily Halloween costume we’re going to get fellow latch-key kids.
For a show that lasted a lunchtime there sure was a lot of merchandising interest. I really dig the merchandise but honestly, some of those episodes are a complete slog.
The Our Ways Studios Jointed Giants were popular in the US but in Peru, they added characters including Thor. I have no room for such things but the art on these makes a hard argument on the “pro owning them” side of things.
