    Plaid Stallions A Salute to Canadian Toy Packaging



    It's not a closely guarded secret that I'm Canadian. So on the day of my country's 150th birthday, it seems duly patriotic that i share my favourite toys in Canadian packaging.

    Due to having two official languages, we had different toy packages than the US and brother, it's tough to find. Hunting these is my obsession because there is no better whallop of nostalgia for me, enjoy!

    Happy Birthday, Canada!!!

    I didn't know that one, I did know that we got Stepponwolfe on the card. I spent a Christmas sending CASES of those to US dealers once.

    Very cool feature for our 150th!

    It's interesting that for example, back in the 90's Star Wars collectors looked down on Canadian packaging as inferior, but now it's desirable. They finally realized how scarce the Canadian stuff was in comparison to the US packaging (especially the oddball stuff like the Sears shrink wrapped cards and the Canadian "transition cards" that are worth a bundle now).

    Cool... Remember some of those bilingual packaging variations from when I was a kid.
    Still have my Kenner Canada Death Star box which says Station Spatiale de L'etoile de la Mort on the other side.

    Looking for the following Mego "Comic Action Heroes" accessories: Penguin's umbrella and Green Goblin's satchel/shoulder bag.
    And one Mego Comic Activator (working or non working).
