    A new one for me

    As a former Captain America collector I've seen a lot of merchandise but this is a new one on me. Love the box artwork!

    I agree, the package artwork is great!

    Iíve always loved everything Captain America and Spider-Man from that era.

    The Larami Toy Company? Iím trying to recall but I wonder if the walkie talkies worked as advertised.

    I knew I had seen that toy company name before, but couldn’t place it. That may be where I’ve seen it. I’m not sure. It’s definitely familiar.

    I was on a major Captain America kick in the late seventies, doubtless due to Reb Brown, and I would have enjoyed these.

    ^ Ondint know if that got me on the Captain America kick, it it sure didn’t hurt. I can still remember seeing commercials for it. In my 4 or 5 year-old mind I thought it was going to become a TV series and found that very exciting! Then again, at that time, and still, I have great affinity for The Amazing Spider-Man series.

    To this day, I have a special place in my heart for Captain America from that era. That’s why it’s so neat to see this Larami Walkie Talkie set.

    That's a great idea! While they made a Cap Frisbee they didn't make one that looked like his shield until the 90's

    When I saw this was new to you, I had to click this open to see what it was.

    I love the pic of Cap throwing the shield.

    I had those exact same ones but they were "Interplanetary Ape Phones", they don't work worth a darn.

    Larami was obsessed with giving Spider-Man and Cap giant "Dirty Harry" guns.
