This is a pretty nice-looking package for this "intercom set", but I'd almost bet that the wires were short enough that you could pretty much make yourself heard by talking loudly as easily as using the intercom! I wonder why it included wires and an antenna, though...
This JLA bubble gum header from a vending machine is very cool, if for no other reason than the variety of heroes on it! I don't know if the gum came with a sticker or mini-comic or what!
This Superman figure was produced by Ideal in the 1960s, and was apparently available in painted and non-painted versions, and was one of the Justice League figures! As you can see, this one's logo is not only flaking off, but it wasn't painted in the right spot anyway!
I'm guessing by "Instant Stained Glass," these are actually printed on clear plastic that adheres to glass, so you could just stick it on any window or glass to get the effect going!
Lite Brite sets were always a disappointment to me. While you'd see the photo showing what the sets could actually let you make, the headers always showed much more detailed pictures!
This musical TV toy must be a bootlegged item, if for no other reason than because Superman and Batman are joined by Spider-Man on the package (and in the toy itself)! The packaging also makes me suspect it's a bootleg, as there's no "Superheroes" logo of any kind recognizable from licensed products.
Two sets of magnets on display today! This group above was probably marketed under the "Super Friends" brand... They're all cool!
This other set of magnets was a custom-made set someone was selling on eBay, and I'm guessing that they got shot down, because I haven't seen them offered since! The magnets feature the box art from the original Aurora model kits.
The first of two items I'm presenting today is the Sunbeam Breads fun book shown above... I wish the seller of this had some of the stickers, too! I would've loved to be able to check them out!
This poster book appears to be a very different one than what I showed you in a comics advertisement a while back... this may be one of the few licensed items from the 1970s or earlier that showed Wonder Woman carrying a sword!
Today's first ad comes from the June, 1977 cover-dated DC books, and is a full page ad touting Marx Toys' "Sky Heroes" line, which you'll note features a lot of characters who don't fly, plus Superman! You'll be seeing the actual toy here one of these days.
From the same books, I'm not sure if I have the Superman toothbrush in my files or not!
Let's see what I have for Superman-related comics ads!
Ah, here's a classic from the June, 1969 cover-dated DC books, promoting Palisades Park! Now, I grew up in Washington State, but I'd imagine pretty much all kids who read comics who grew up far away from New Jersey and the surrounding area felt quite a bit cheated every time they saw this ad! I note this one doesn't indicate that there are any attractions relating to DC superheroes! Well, aside from the "Batman Slide," anyway.
The second ad for the day is another "Justice For All Includes Children" PSA, this one is from the June, 1976 cover-dated DC books. This one certainly looks like it's Curt Swan on the art!
First up today is this sealed box of superhero erasers... wish I had photos of the erasers themselves!
This absolutely awesome DC superheroes fabric is the next and final item for today... look at all that great Bronze Age artwork! I have a sleeping bag in my collection made of this material (some day I need to take some really good pictures of that to share in the blogs, as well as figure out how to display it!).
I just have to say that I LOVE these dominoes featuring the DC characters! It adapts dominoes to superheroes in a way that the Bingo game I posted a few days back didn't... good stuff!
The light-up drawing desk above is a nice item for kids trying to learn to draw their favorite characters, too... certainly better than what I used to do as a kid, which was placing carbon paper and a sheet of bond paper behind a comic book page and drawing over the original comic with a pen!
Today's post is all about Corgis, starting off with the Corgi Juniors case above, one of those rare items featuring Superman and Batman along with Spider-Man! Outside of the Megos, you didn't see too many items with DC and Marvel characters appearing together!
And here's some of the Corgi Super Juniors vehicles that you could store in the case! The Superman items are the Supermobile as well as the van nearby it. Corgi also did a Daily Planet van and Metropolis Police Cars and Helicopters, as I recall.
I have been a Navy journalist, word processor, graphic designer, medical assisting student, cook, and truck driver, and am currently an eBay seller as well as an employee at a big retail store. I have been and always will be into comics, sf, tv, cartoons, monsters, oldies rock, and lots of other stuff.

Please join me every day at the Fortress of Solitude Trophy room as I present photos of all sorts of Superman collectibles, from toys to games to puzzles to original comic book art and more! I am not offering any of these items for sale - all photos have come from eBay auctions of the past.
