I got my first CA for Christmas 1966 (CA, Batman, Superman, Phantom) and more for Christmas 1967. Over the years, I’ve added to the collection, and here’s where it stands:

Nice collection!

Mine is kind of split up, and not everything is out.

Here's a couple of shots:

There's another Silver Streak in the box, got it and the box from the original owner, hardly played with and it's beautiful.

Batman's cool ride!

This was an Irwin motorcycle, you find them normally in GiJoe colors, but they made a Batman version assuming to go with the Captain Action Batman. Oh and a little funny about this Batcycle, the Batman logo was only put on one side, so I guess Batman could go incognito if he only made left turns, LOL.

This is a picture of it in the packaging, this one is not mine.

For me, my biggest quest has been for the “perfect” loose Batman. I have two now, and one that is 90%

Wow, wonderful stuff gentlemen! I had no idea about the Irwin Batcycles! I'm surprised none of these were every listed in any of the CA history books I have.

My wife has several Irwin vehicles made to compliment Barbie, and I knew they did G.I. Joe-intended toys as well, so it makes perfect sense for them to rope in CA.

Thanks! I was thinking about how the Round 2 iteration of the Captain gave us such a big boost in characters, while the Playing Mantis era was great for rounding out and completing vintage sets. I was an idiot back in the day, and sold all of my original Green Hornet accessories. Without Playing Mantis, my collection would have some serious holes in it.

Those collections are amazing! (also gotta mention...Danny, I love that sweet GI JOE 1969 collection, too.)

I have all of the Round 2 Marvel characters and Playing Mantis Green Hornet, Kato, Lone Ranger (Red shirt and blue outfit), and The Phantom. Captain Action was the last collection I started working on. No originals, though and I don't know if I quite have the passion for the line at this point to take that on. I do think they are among the coolest toys ever made and I'd love to get a Batman and Aquaman someday, but I'd have to luck into the deal of the century.

I know it’s a fan-produced piece, but the Irwin-style Batmobile is a favorite of mine:

We can certainly work something out. Maybe a timeshare??

Cool story on the early bird set! I owned a couple of those over the years, but didn't keep any :(

I just nabbed my first vintage CA item--an Aquaman bodysuit in great shape for 53 years old. It's so well-made!

I plan to use it for either a custom CA or Mego 12" Aquaman. :grin:

Yes, years lol, thank you. Trying now to decide if I want a CA mask or substitute head. I wonder how the Parkdale/Grand 12" Superman head would look painted blond and sans spitcurl... I'm adding Mego magnetic Robin glove-gauntlets, they look great.
