Major props to Robb for pointing this wonderful item in my direction.
First off, that’s #@*&ing Snyderman from the Heroes World Catalogs and ads of our youth! Does anyone ever recall a Snyderman appearance at a Heroes World? Or is this perfect in every detail outfit just created for this promotion? Gahhhhh, I will not sleep until i know!
The mix of DC and Marvel reminds me of Mego here, That Spider-Man suit looks similar to the one Marvel used in the very early 1970s for promotions and methinks that Thor doth be a maiden in disguise? Which brings me to my next point.
Unlike most calendars my dad got back in the day, this one resisted the cheesecake entirely. Wonder Woman here was a good sport no doubt and I’m going to hazard a guess that this is in fact, the boss of EPS inc.
Another obscurity, Captain Marvel, I know he was around in the late 1970s and even got some merchandise but I honestly remember not knowing who he was when i was 9 and that’s saying a lot.
Considering there is no Aquaman or Shazam (both TV regulars), the appearance of Mar-Vell is somewhat surprising to be honest.
One final note, while the majority of these outfits are comic inspired, that is a Lou Ferrigno / possibly John Belushi inspired Incredible Hulk right there folks.
I can’t tell you how much i love this thing.
It seems fitting to remind everyone about my upcoming book project Mall of Justice. If you have images like the ones below and want to share them and your story, I want to hear from you!
