    Does anyone know if more Comic Action or Pocket Heroes were planned?

    …I would add:

    Daily Planet Playset for 8" WGSH

    It was solicited in the 1979 Mego catalog (accompanying price sheet only, and set to be Item #94018) — Never Produced.

    Since it made the price sheet, I'm assuming there is at least preliminary artwork somewhere out there….
    You'd have to imagine they were planning on a new Clark Kent figure to go with this. Wouldn't make much sense otherwise. Oh wait, they made The Wayne Foundation with no new, widely available Bruce Wayne, so I may be wrong.

    But I'd be all over that!

    Does anyone know if more Comic Action or Pocket Heroes were planned?
    Well, they showed Joker, Penguin and Shazam (Captain Marvel) on the card backs, but never made them in the "straight" Pocket format.

    Defining this gets a bit sketchy. For example, we're discovering figures that were thought to never have been produced, like the New Avengers, did make it to South Africa.

    Or... the Logan's Run TV series was produced, but the run was destroyed.


    8" Grease

    I think Grease would have done exceptionally well, and would have been a hot commodity in the late-90s/2000s. The other day I watched a Grease VH-1 "Behind the Music"...the 20th Anniv re-release of the movie in 1998 was huge. And with the success as the highest grossing musical at the box office all-time plus on-going Broadway success, Grease has a gigantic following.

    I think Exclusive Premiere thought so as well!

    I have a 1980 Toy Fair order form and I see that there was a plan for a 24 inch Growling Hulk figure as well as the Spiderman Alley plaset. There is also a programable Spider Trax vehicle. I know of the Batman one but I didn't know about the Spiderman one. Wasn't there also a Wonder Woman playset that was supposed to be produced?

    Yeah, I worked at a video rental store in the mid to late 90's and Grease was constantly being rented out by teen and tween girls, a movie that was made before they were even born. It was still very popular, probably one of our top ten rented catalog titles, because of those girls continuously renting it.

    I got the chills... They're multiplyin'!!!! Grease would have been cool, and I've never seen that Thundarr pic before. I'm sure I would have had those had they been made...
