T Shirt Bliss

One of our better windows into our pop culture past is the T Shirt selection, this assortment just punches you in the face with it’s “1979ness”.

Rain of the Supermen

I love stuff like licensed rain coats mostly because few people thought to save them, especially fond of the Star Trek one. I have nothing against Holly Hobby but sometimes it’s hard to scan a catalog without destroying it in the process…

Super Goodies from Down Under

This fun spread of toys comes from a company called Croner who distributed toys in Australia, they carried Azrak Hamway toys in Australia and APC puzzles. It’s hard not to smile when you see stuff like this, especially considering they have Batman and Spider-Man’s launchers reversed. Rack Toys: Cheap, Crazed Playthings is a limited edition 144 page […]

Super Skates

As weird as these are, I’ve got to admit I kind of love their design. If I had got these as a kid, the only in my size would be Wonder Woman and I would have bought them…. Rack Toys: Cheap, Crazed Playthings is a limited edition 144 page book from the creator of Plaid […]

Super Scissors

Another one of those products where, once you detach them from the card, they have no real connection to the characters after. I do love the Batman card though, it looks like Robin is fed up with Batman’s need to run with them. Rack Toys: Cheap, Crazed Playthings is a limited edition 144 page book […]

Podstallions 14: Filmation Part One

Episode one explore our earliest memories of Filmation and tries to relay the Saturday morning experience, look for a longer […]

Pod Stallions 5: Where are you coming from Spider-Man?

In this installment, Jason and Brain wax nostalgic over the days when we didn’t get spoiled by three Superhero movies a Summer. The time when Captain America had a van, Spider-Man was a Von Trap child and Sinestro used to open for Sinatra. “Where are you coming from Spider-Man” explores what a Superhero loving child […]

AHI Mysteries #3: Super Klobbers

Here’s another one I hope is real, Super Klobbers. Basically, they’re just Centsable Socker Boppers with Super Hero dressing. The kick of these is they seemed to have used classic stock art (including swipes from the Mego Superman box) and added boxing gloves to them. Look at that lovely Neal Adams Batman ready to go […]

Man of Spare Tire

This 1976 Toyfair appearance by “Superman” to promote his upcoming Duncan yo-yo features possibly the most disappointing man of steel I’ve ever seen. That guy looks like Ruben Kincaid, was Norman Fell dressed as Batman somewhere?
