Man I couldn't stop smiling as I read that post, wonderful stuff!

In the pic of little Dougie shaking hands with Acroyear the box sitting above the Biotrons is a "Spiderman Mug & Bowl" set I reckon. Also are they boxed Spider-Cars in the top left of that same pic?

Thanks B!

I met Spiderman at Empire Comics here in the 70's. Also, Johnathan Frakes was one of the people that was in the Captain America suit during appearences. He even shows up on Candid Camera as Captain America.

That photo with Cap you have on the site, it's hard to see if it is Frakes or not but it might be.

The pics of Frakes I've seen, it's a little different suit more like the one I have shown here:
