A few months back I did a spotlight on Battle of the Planets Toys , being a fan, I thought I knew all of the US merchandising. That’s why these PJs and robe came as a big surprise. US Merchandise for BOTP is pretty sparse (North American kids never even got action figures) that’s what makes this stuff so cool.I wonder if any of it survived.

    I'm in the USA and my folks bought me a pair of Battle of the Planets bedroom slippers from our local KMart in the late 70's. Oh, how I miss my vintage anime footwear every day of my adult life 😉

    I have a photo of me wearing them – along with a swanky 70's bathrobe – and you can barely make out the Phoenix nosecone/front profile.
