Amsco Marvel World

Amsco Marvel World

The Amsco Marvel World Playset is one of the most wonderful pieces of Superhero merch from the 1970s.

An expensive collectible now, I think the major reason for it’s appeal is it was comic accurate in an era when it has no business being so.

Seriously, Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum?

    Thats really cool but how much cooler would it be if they made Galactus closer to his actual size? I only had the playset with Hulk and Spidey.

    Man, I loved this set. The attention to detail was fantastic. My brother had a similar set from the same company for Space 1999. We, of course, played with them together, mixing and matching, giving Spiderman some aliens to fight and having Commander Koenig meet with Reed Richards and stuff like that.
