    Plaid Stallions Shark! by Ben Cooper


    When Jaws hit pop culture like a runaway train, licensors lined up to cash in. The only problem? Any toy company can make a shark toy and boy howdy did they.

    This particular one by Ben Cooper just goes above and beyond by including a victim, a scared victim!





    Man, I know that face, I make at least once a week. I wish I owned this toy but it was kindly submitted by a collector to include in Rack Toys.




    We have a PodCast! It's fun, please listen.

    Is the victim wearing a black shirt? His hair resembles Roy Scheider. It's like an alternate ending of Jaws.

    Great toy!!!! The header card is fantastic! I don't know why I never owned a shark toy in the 70s. The weird part is I have many memories of playing with a rubber KO shark with Big Jim and Gijoes. Seems like every kid had a rubber shark when we played back then. Sharing was fun! I loved that you could fit parts of victim/action figure inside the shark so the shark attacks were more authentic.
