Produced in 1978, this is the goofiest-looking piece of "camping equipment" I've ever seen... nonetheless, I'm sure my son would go nuts over something like this! AHI did a Batman version, too... and a Hulk one I think!
The 1974 Aurora Comic Scenes model kits were reissues of some of their 1960s super-hero kits, with the added bonus of a comic book story included with the instructions, one page of which was a full-page splash that could be used as a backdrop for the model kit when assembled!
I'm hoping to come across a built and painted version of this kit sometime so I can post that photo here, too!
OK, I could mock this because Spidey never rode a motorcycle in the comics... Peter Parker did for a while, but not Spidey (unless it was on a one-time basis, like in the issue of Marvel Team-Up with Ghost Rider)... but it is just too fun a toy to mock too badly!
I really dig things like these... similar to the Marvel World toy by Amosco, it's an inexpensive playset with cardboard standees of the characters to get the full Spider-Man universe play experience! Ideal Toys came out with this gem.
This 1973 AHI item is interesting in a couple of ways... usually, I like to mock rack toys like this that don't fit the license, but I can make an exception for Frisbee-type toys (although would it have killed someone to do a Captain America shield Frisbee?). The most interesting thing about this, however, is that it uses the artwork from the Rockcomic record album!
