I've written on my other blogs about how I don't understand the bop bag concept... you're basically hitting the lead/hero character licensed for the bop bag, and not a villain! I mean, I could see a bop bag with Luthor or Brainiac on it... but why would you want to hit Superman?
I suppose even if there were villains on 'em, the fact that they come right back up again would imply something anyway...
This original piece of artwork by Wayne Boring seems to be a recreation of a piece he did for DC's Secret Origins (2nd series) #1!
I have memories of wanting this item, but I don't believe I ever had it as a kid (or as an adult, for that matter)!
I think Avon did this brush, too.
As an adult, I don't find these bagatelle games that interesting, because there's no way to keep score, and you'd pretty much have to shake it up when all the balls are stuck in position in order to keep playing... but the kids must've liked 'em, because there were so many different ones made!

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.
