Shopping with Hordak

My friend Corey sent this picture of his pal Darryl and Hordak at the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre PA circa 1986. He goes on to mention “I can safely say it wasn’t the reason we went to the mall, it was just kinda there. I did take some more shots of Skeletor’s castle which I’ll dig out […]

Sx Flags Star Wars

Danny (check out his awesome art here) sent in this fun shot of him posing with a pretty ersatz Vader and C3P0 from Six Flags great adventure in 1981. Danny mentioned he likes to point out to family that Vader is wearing Adama’s cape but they don’t understand, however we totally do… Send me your vintage mall appearance photos! […]

The Incredible Hunh?

Clark sent in these shots of him and his sister Stef from the Harrisburg Auto Show meeting “The Hulk” and well, this is the worst and most awesome thing I have ever seen. I’m positive this Hulk was not endorsed in any way by Marvel comics as it would give Stan Lee nightmares. I can […]

Mall Droid

Sean  (follow him on twitter) sent in this awesome shot of him and …..R7-D3? I’m not sure who that’s supposed to be, oh wait it’s R2-D2, says so right on the front. Wow, he looks different in person. I think I finally found a companion for this Chewbacca… Send me your vintage mall appearance photos! […]

Movember Batman

Tim tells me that “he wasn’t fool by the moustache for a second”.  Good eye Tim, that Batman has “Wendy’s night manager” written all over him.  Send me your vintage […]

Meet the Hot Wheels Guy

Kudos to Jeremy for sending in these cool shots of him meeting the Hot Wheels guy not once, but twice in one summer. The first encounter taking place at a Hill’s department store (that’s where the toys are) and the second at a mini mall. I had no idea Hot Wheels had a guy, Jeremy […]

Ultraman hits the mall

Yet another Japanese Mall Appearance photo, this time it’s Ultraman Joe (the animated version) visiting a toy store. This was done in conjunction with Popy toys, to no doubt promote their awesome line of toys including these Mego-esque figures. Send me your mall appearance photos!

Chez Frankenstein

Aw yeah more 70s Frankenstein submissions! This one is from Seth who met the monster outside the House of Frankenstein wax museum in Lake George, NY the summer of 1977. I’ve always wanted to visit the House of Frankenstein, which is still in operation and opens next week. Thanks to Seth for the awesome photo. […]
