Mego Marvel Team-Up at the Mall. Spider-Man & Giant Acroyear

I was so excited to stumble upon this ad for Korvettes from 1978 featuring a Mego Superhero and Micronaut Mall Appearance. Mego famously did promotional tours with the Marvel Superheroes, Planet of the Apes characters, Action Jackson and even the cast of Star Trek. However, they also created this amazing costume of the Giant Acroyear […]

Marvel Heroes : Live and In Person

I went to one of these as a kid (at my local Woolco) and my mum exposed all the film. This lead me with an obsession to finding another kid who has photos of this event and to the creation of my next book “Mall of Justice”. If you have photos of an event like […]

Dargon of the Sectaurs visits a Toy Store!

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 […]

Super Team!

No, this isn’t a still from the upcoming Justice League movie (it’s too bright for one thing) this my friends is from a clever late 70s promotion for a company that seems to brilliantly pioneer what we call “Cosplay” today. Take a better look after the jump. You’ll be glad you did. Major props to […]

Fake Vader

I have no idea who Crowd Pleasers is but I can only imagine they were not officially licensed by Lucasfilm and probably made a fortune doing this. Love Darth’s Kenner blaster, just like he never used. This is the perfect type of photo I’m seeking for my next book project Mall of Justice, a love letter to […]

Cornelius and Zira visit Syracuse

Were you there? have any photos? I’d love to include them in our latest book project Mall of Justice. Mall of Justice is a love letter to the sensational personal appearances of our comic book, TV, movie and toy icons during the 1970s and 80s. Whether it’s Adam West at a car show, He-Man at a Toys R […]

General Spidrax at Toys R Us

It doesn’t get more 80s than this does it? The badguy from the Sectaurs meeting a kid with a Ghostbusters Tee shirt! Reminder: 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 […]

The first Spider-Man

Found this great photo in an old issue of FOOM (which I didn’t know I owned) from left to right that’s Stan Lee, Marie Severin, “Jazzy” John Romita and Roy Thomas wearing what has to be the first Spider-Man appearance suit ever. It’s Ditko influence is joyous. And Remember I’m still looking for your photos […]
