AHI Space Rocket!

spidey_spacerocket

I don't know that AHI produced these toys for any character they were appropriate for!

Soft Darts!

Wow, they would stick Spidey on the card art for anything, wouldn't they?

Sleeping Bag!

You know, any sleeping bag with Stegron, the Dinosaur Man on it is well worth owning!

Sky Heroes by Marx Toys!

spidey_skyheroes

Why Marx insisted on making Sky Heroes of characters who don't have the power of flight is beyond me!

Figural Roller Skates!

To this day, I'll never understand the appeal of figural roller skates...

Bicycle Siren!

It does often seem that whatever items had Batman on them in the 1970s, Spider-Man got his name or image plastered on, too... and this bike siren's a prime example of that!

Signal Gun!

spidey_signalgun.JPG

I'm guessing this is another of those items where the licensor was already making these things, and just added a new card and stickers to the existing product.

Now, a Spider-Signal with a clip you could put on your belt? That would've been a cool idea.

Shrinky DInks!

spidey_shrinkydinks.jpg

A classic craft toy! I had a blast making Shrinky Dinks when I was younger, although I didn't have the Marvel Superheroes one!

Spidey Shoelaces!

spidey_shoelaces

Man, if they still made these, I could probably have gotten my son to try to learn how to tie his shoes much sooner...

AHI Saucer Gun!

spidey_saucergunahi.jpg

OK, putting aside the whole "making money" thing... I really don't get why it was so hard for AHI and other Spidey licensors to figure out appropriate toys to manufacture from the license!

Rockcomic!

spidey_rockcomic2.jpg

Now, here's a record that I not only remember, but I've also owned it at least two or three times! Certainly available for download on the 'net somewhere!

One of the faithful Spidey fans pointed out to me that it's available on Amazon!

Remco CSF Helicopter!

spidey_remcovertibird.jpg

Yep, it's another Spider-Man Helicopter Toy... that's at least two from Remco alone (one was sold for the Energized Spider-Man).

Rock Reflections of a Superhero Record!

You know, I could've sworn this was an LP, and not a 45...

Ricochet Racer Set!

spidey_riccochetracer3.JPG

I'm sure you remember this one advertised in the comics... The Ricochet Racer toy was basically a spring-loaded gun that shot plastic cars... and I'm guessing after one too many kids went to the emergency room after having one of these embedded in their eye (or one too many windows were broken), that was the end of this toy line!

AHI RC Car!

spidey_rccar

I'm not sure why AHI decided to make Spider-Man cars... well, aside from the whole "to make lots of money" thing, anyway...

Radios!

spidey_radiopens

I think of the two radios, I like the figural one the best, but they're both cool. I believe I've featured the bank here before, but maybe not the pen!

Race N Chase!

spidey_racenchance.jpg

You know, there's really not a single Marvel super-hero who lends themself to a slot car set, is there?

Puzzle!

spidey_puzzle.JPG

Wow, I don't know who drew the art for this puzzle... but whoever it was, they were having a bad arm-drawing day, weren't they?

Puffy Stickers!

spidey_puffystickers.jpg

Gotta love the old-school art on these!

Presto Magix!

Despite what it says, it's not a toy... it's like Colorforms, only with temporary tattoos, if you will!

Power Shield!

spidey_powershield.jpg

You know, in almost two years of collecting photos from eBay auctions (I'm writing this entry in April, 2009, by the way, so it'll be nearly three years when this is published), I've only come across two Power Shields on eBay -- this one, and a Batman one!

Power Putty!

spidey_powerputty

One of the problems with running so many blogs, with so much shared between them, is that it's hard to remember what photos I've shared on which blogs! This item, the Power Putty, is a prime example... I know I've shown a photo of it somewhere before, but not this size!

Power Records!

Even though most -- if not all -- of these records have been ripped and available to download as MP3s on the net, I'd absolutely buy a set of reissue CDs of all the Power Records library!

spidey_powerrecordscassette.JPG

I was kind of surprised to come across this, because I didn't realize that the Power Records stuff had ever come out on cassette!

Decoder!

spidey_pouch.jpg

I believe this was part of a larger set of toys sold on cards!

Sal Q Productions Portfolio!

I wish I had pictures of all the plates to show you of this set!
