Ahhhhh the 1980s were a goldmine for costumed character appearances from toy lines weren’t they?
Do you have photos like this in a drawer? Any fun memories of the experience?
This is the kind of thing I’m looking for in my next book “Mall of Justice”.
How you can get involved: I’m looking for your photos and your recollections! Even if you’ve submitted them to the site before, I would likely need higher resolution and I’d want to talk to you.
What am i looking for: Appearances of costumed characters during the 1970s and 80s, be they from comic books (Batman, the Hulk) , cartoons (, toy lines (Masters of the Universe, GI Joe) or movies (Planet of the Apes, Star Wars) , a date and place and a description of how you felt meeting these iconic characters. Did you think they were real?
Does it have to specifically be in a mall:
HECK NO! Car shows, county fairs, grocery stores, heck I’d even accept birthday party shots. It’s all fair game.
