I recently discovered this ad for Ben Cooper Halloween Costumes for 1978. I vividly remember getting that Darth Vader suit that year but being super jealous when my friend Jerry showed up at my door as Mazinga. What I find most interesting is the mention of Ben Cooper”Man From Atlantis” Halloween costume.
I’m a bit of a Man from Atlantis fanboy, even though I admit the series isn’t very good. I wonder what the costume would have looked like. I mean, Mark just mainly wore yellow “short shorts.” Hopefully, someday the Ben Cooper art surfaces. Surfaces? Get it! I’m here all week.
Here is a link to the 1980 Ben Cooper Catalog on the site, I need to redo this gallery someday.
We also have the 1976 Ben Cooper Catalog in case you’re curious about the “Pre-Star Wars” post “Planet of the Apes” world.
