11 Awesome, Creepy, and WTF Vintage Comic Book Toys

While I was searching for 75 products in honor of Wonder Woman’s 75th anniversary I came across a few products that were amazing but sadly super rare vintage collectables. Naturally I quickly found myself down the rabbit hole of vintage comic book toys and since sharing is caring here are 11 awesome, creepy, and wtf vintage comic book toys I came across.

 

vintage-wonder-woman-scissors

These 1978 Wonder Woman safety scissors would have totally been awesome UNTIL you used them and Wonder Woman’s body ripped in half! And that screw in her neck is unfortunate placement.

wonder-woman-hand-mirror-vintage

Where as this Wonder Woman mirror, released the same year, managed to leave the creepy element out and just be awesome.

vintage-batman-communicators

Holy Walkie Talkies, Batman! These Batman Communicators would fit perfect in a pillow fort Batcave.

vintage-batman-water-gun

Ahahahahaha*breathe*Ahahahah. This Batman water gun from the ’60s  either had a clueless designer or someone playing the will-they-notice-before-production game.

vintage-thor-on-scooter

Thor on a pink scooter! I would so fight Sara Anderson (Adventures in Babysitting) for this toy–you know she had to have one!

superman-roll-over-plane-marx-windup-blue-variety

Speaking of awesome toys this Superman Roll Over Plane Marx Windup (blue variety) apparently sold for $2,000 at auction! The heart wants what the heart wants.

vintage-batcave-playset

Did I say pillow fort Batcave? What I meant to say was 1974 Batman Batcave Playset!

vintage-batman-and-robin-hand-puppets

1966 Ideal hand puppets look like rubber heads on vinyl bodies and I would have put on so many shows! I’ve seen Captain America, Wonder Woman, Batman and Robin, Joker, and Superman. I want them all!

hazelle-robin-and-batman-marionettes

I’m gonna say this is gonna polarize people into either camp awesome or camp get-that-away-from-me: Hazelle Batman and Robin Marionettes.

vintage-hulk-head

It’s a Mr. Potato Head but of HULK’S HEAD!

incredible-hulk-vintage-helicopter-toy

Oh and Hulk also had an amazing helicopter toy–or shall I say incredible helicopter toy.

 

Well looks like everyone knows where my lotto winnings will go to.
