This was the first Spider-Man portfolio released... kind of disappointing, isn't it... almost looks more like merchandsing artwork!

Japanese Popy Vehicle!

spidey_popyvehiclejap

Yeah, this is a toy based on the Japanese Spider-Man series, which is quite different from what we're used to in the USA!

Pogo Stick!

Does anyone else think this is just bizarre?

Pocket FLix!

Pocket Flix was Ideal's entry into the hand-held "movie view" market, which got pretty much killed off by the home video market.

Playing Cards!

Kind of a plain design to these, but still nice!

Clicker Gun -- What Th-?

spidey_pistol.jpg

Yeah, someone thought a Spider-Man clicker gun made sense...

Figural Pencil Sharpener!

spidey_pencilsharpener.JPG

The Spidey figure attached to this pencil sharpener looks like he's put on a few extra pounds, doesn't he?

Pencil Case!

spidey_pencilcase

Wow, it has been a while since I posted a photo of some kind of Spidey school supply, hasn't it?

Patches!

Interesting to see the two different patches using the same pose, isn't it -- one was printed, the other embroidered!

AHI Spidey Parachutist!

spidey_parachute

This one's missing the parachute, as well as his chest insignia, but it does give you a good look at what the figure looked like!

Paperback Books!

spidey_paperbacks78.JPG

Here's volumes 2 and 3 of the Paperback book reprints of Spidey's earliest adventures! These were published in 1978.

Paint 'n Puff Set!

spidey_paintnpuffset

What's a Paint 'n Puff set? I'm guessing that the kind of paint that you use kind of puffs up...

Paddle Racket!

spidey_paddle

Yeah, they'd slap a Spidey logo on anything and sell it, wouldn't they?

Night Light!

The same item, released twice...

spidey_nightlight.jpg

spidey_nightlight.JPG

I wonder which spelling of "night" was the first version release?

Muscle Meter from 1979!

spidey_musclemeter79.jpg

Here's an example of an item that was repurposed for other characters... don't believe me? Here's the Popeye and Bluto versions:

Color & Re-Color Gift Set!

spidey_mugbowlset1

I still think this is a great concept, and it should absolutely be done again these days!

Snap-Together Model Kit!

spidey_mpcmodelkit.jpg

You know, if I'd seen this kit on the shelves when I was a kid, I would've bought it in a heartbeat... I loved building models, but hated the gluing and painting, neither of which is necessary here!

Movie Poster!

spidey_movieposter

Yep, it's the Nicholas Hammond CBS-TV movie featured here... although I'm pretty sure that Spidey costume is not the one used in the TV movies and show... it actually looks more like the one used on the Electric Company to my eye!

Spidey & Hulk Motorcycle!

spidey_motorcycle2.jpg

Now, I've seen a LOT of toys featuring Spidey and the Hulk, but this one has to be one of the silliest... I mean, the Hulk riding in a sidecar???

Mission Control Center!

spidey_missioncontrol

Um, yeah, right... obviously this rack toy manufacturer already was making these things without the Spidey stickers, and took advantage of their Spider-Man license to make these long after the CB craze was over!

1978 Mirror!

spidey_mirror78.JPG

I recall a couple of different Marvel mirrors advertised in the comics... this one, a Hulk one, and a Captain America one! So far, I believe I just have this photo of the three..

Mexican Lobby Card!

spidey_mexlc

Not for the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man movie, but for one of the CBS-TV Spider-Man movies of the 1970s, which were shown in the theatres in South America!

Mexican Figures!

spidey_mexicanknockoff1.JPG

spidey_mexicanknockoff2.JPG

spidey_mexicanknockoff3.JPG

All three of these figures were produced in Mexico, and most likely were unlicensed!

Mego Spider Machine!

spidey_megomachine.jpg

Apparently, the Spider Machine was part of the line of vehicles for Mego's Pocket Heroes! A very similar-looking Bat Machine was also produced.

Thursday, February 4, 2010

Mego Bendy!

spidey_megobendy.jpg

The Spider-Man bendy was probably the best-looking bendy figure Mego produced!

Medallion!

I knew I had a bigger photo of this...

Spidey Tape Dispenser!

spidey_tapeholder

Mechanical Hand!

spidey_mechanicalarm

I remember when these were in the stores! Never quite understood why it was a Spider-Man item, though... now, a Plastic Man or Mr. Fantastic one would make sense, as it would simulate stretching...
