I have no idea how these were sold... with gum? In vending machines? Or were they cereal box items?

Well, I thought I had lots more of these to share, but this seems to be the last one!

Now, these I know I have more of... apparently several episodes of the George Reeves Superman series were edited into movies and shown in Mexican theatres! More of these tomorrow!

This is one of those neat retro-styled toys that came out in the late 1990s!

Superman was used to help promote Gilbert Toys in this catalog:

I thought I had a few more pages of it in my files!

dcsh_superdictionary

Here's the Super Dictionary, one of those 1970s items that I really, really want to add to my collection of stuff one of these days!
