Yes, the Sky Heroes toys are there on this October, 1978 cover-dated DC books ad... but I suspect the placemats advertised here shows a Superman one I've posted here before! I doubt I have a pic of the Superman drinking glass advertised there.
This ad for the Mego superhero figures is from 1975, and I'm not sure which store's catalog it's from!
Here's the photos of the DC Superheroes sleeping bag that I own... actually, it's the photos from the auction that I won, not photos I've taken of it myself!
I have no idea why they thought the Atom's costume should be green, instead of blue and red! But I have to say, I love the artwork they chose for it... you may have noticed the Golden Age Green Lantern there in the background!
The second item for today comes from Argentina! I have to say, I like these cups, wish I could find something like that at the dollar stores!
Yes, that's right... Super Heroes shoes. I had no idea. Awfully tiny image of Superman on the toe, isn't it?
Kind of amusing to me that this Batman Show N Tell set features Superman and Wonder Woman on the card art! I guess the manufacturer figured they'd save money by only changing the text on the top of the card!
The Show & Tell was kind of like Kenner's Give-A-Show Projector, except it was all self-contained in the "tv set," and used records with all of the slides. I think there was even a variation on this that had the slides on the record, but I'm not positive about that!
This ad appeared in the August, 1978 cover-dated DC books, and I believe it was done by the Kubert School students. It's a nice ad featuring the 12"and 8" Megos, which posted photos of in the first few days of this blog!
Here's a nice house ad from the September 1975 cover-dated DC books with some of their tabloid editions! You know, it occurs to me that it would be a fun idea for DC to do tabloid-size trade paperbacks of their tabloid reprint and original books...
Any of you have this game who can tell me how you play it? Because it looks like you'd take the magnetic wand and try to get the ball bearings to drop in the holes, and that doesn't seem like it would have much longterm playability.
I wonder what scent the Super Friends air fresheners had?
I've written here before how paint brushes and I don't get along... but if I were to come across one of these sets cheaply, I'd probably buy them now, even if the paint is all dried up, because I could simply scan them in and color them in PhotoShop!
This Super Friends lunchbox has seen better days, hasn't it? It's always been amusing to me how some Super Friends items featured characters that didn't appear on the show until later seasons, if at all! Supergirl, to my knowledge, never appeared on the program, but she was featured on some merchandise, along with the original Captain Marvel!
OK, so yesterday's invitations were kind of a tease for today's post... first up is this set of cutout decorations for your Super Friends party, and that's a nice Superman piece in the front if it, eh? Looks like Neal Adams' work, but I can't quite tell if it's the same art as seen on the "Kryptonite Nevermore" cover, or a new piece. Probably new.
These party horns definitely use the Alex Toth character designs on them... and you can see the Superman figure quite clearly here!
Here's a better photo of the wrapping paper you've seen before... you can really see why I figure the balloons design was already done, and the heroes were just pasted onto it.

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.
