I'm not sure who thought of the idea of figural radios... I guess someone figured if figural bubble bath sells, it's a good idea to make figural everything! In 1973, both Superman and Batman got figural radios made of them.
This Jay Leno-chinned Superman head was made by Wilton in 1977 intended as a cake decoration, I guess for those cake decorators who couldn't do faces that well. No idea what the size of this is.
Before Peter Pan came out with its Power Records imprint, Golden Records was the king of licensed record products, especially in the 1960s, with their own superhero records! This one was pretty neat, with all the club stuff in it!
The cover of this 1960s Superman book, published by Whitman, appears to have a Kurt Schaffenberger cover!
Man, one of my big regrets when I was selling my collectibles off to earn a living while I was out of work was parting with my copy of this book... I wish it would be re-issued, along with the Batman, Shazam! and Wonder Woman volumes!
This 1939 watch may be one of the first merchandised Superman products!

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.
