    Plaid Stallions Five Awesome Things on Ebay this Week

    Mighty Mightor Costume from France- The French really dug Mightor, I'm more of a Birdman guy myself but I think this costume, which makes the wearer go shirtless is the total bomb!



    Shadow Crime Fighter Super Copter- I can never get enough of these odd toys from the late 1970s, this one is rather affordable as well.




    Count Dracula Board Game by Tomland Toys- This is a little later a toy than I normally feature but anything with the words "Tomland" and "Dracula" gets my attention as I'm obsessed with a series of Monster action figures they made in the early 1980s.






    Janex American Man- This is just one weird toy concept, part GI Joe, Part Paper Doll. I can't imagine many kids were happy to have this guy over an action figure but 40 years later it's an amazing curio.
    Captain America Super Baby by Amsco- As a kid, these toys bothered me because they weren't accurate depictions of the characters, Shazam was blonde! I think that says a lot about how uptight I was as a five year old! As an adult, I find this low buy it now tempting, it's hard to keep the collector beast in check.

    Yeah,I remember the ads in comic books for Superbaby. I always wondered what the deal was with them. Were they babies pretending to be superheroes or were they the heroes as babies?

    Crickey, I love it when you post that Shadow stuff.

    I recall wanting some Super-Babies and feeling embarrassed by it...

    I had the Batman Baby as a wee lad. Still have it, and bought a boxed one a few years ago. Love those toys.

    It's amazing that the Shadow copter was released a mere year before Star Wars toys hit the shelves. It seems almost prehistoric in comparison, but was only a year older.

    That's true, I recall seeing The Shadow toys in a catalogue before I even understood who the character was.

    Super-babies, perhaps I will look a Shazam! version up...

    I had blond hair when I was little and it has gotten darker and darker over the years, to the point some think it's black today (it's just a thick, dark brown), so Baby Cap could have blond hair.

    Also interested in figures based on literary characters.

    I don't remember seeing the Shadow stuff around as a kid. I likely would have gotten some, as my mother was a big fan of the old radio show. She listened to it as a kid, so I was well versed in Mr. Cranston as a child. The pic is a slightly re-colored/redone part of the cover of Shadow #1 from DC; I might have grabbed it in the day just because of that.
