i used to have the wonder woman super powers figure but gave it to a guy i used to be friends with ages ago --- turns out he was pretty much using me and i didnt figure it out until too late --- so super powers ww was gone but i bought this one which was very much like the super powers one, a little bit different and different packaging too but enough that it retained the look of the super powers model which i thought was pretty snazzy
I'm not sure where it is, but somewhere I have the "special" Super powers Clark Kent figure that you had to send in a coupon for.

Sadly I didn't have a whole bunch of superhero toys; just a few Mego figures
I still have this:
This is a bottle of shampoo from Avon. I don't have the box or the cape, but the bottle I do have...it sits in my shower.

When I was a young kid I was big into Batman (late '70's), from the cartoons and few comics I read of his.
I remember I had the 'Batman utility belt', that had a clicky gun(!), grappling hook and a walkie talkie among other things on it. It was bright yellow and had the word 'Batman' in a bat-shaped belt buckle. IIRC this was the regular Batman comic logo at the time.
I also had the matchbox sized Batmobile (based on the Adam West tv show) and the bigger version of it, as well as a mini helicopter.
As most young kids do, I eventually broke/lost EVERYTHING!
for the matchbox sized batmobile were they the pocket ones? cause i think i still have the batman one as well as joker mobile that i bought several years back. i also have the bat copter but its not a mini one, but larger one, i think it came with a launcher from memory but the launcher wasnt with it when i bought it.
anybody have any more pics of superhero toys to share????
I assume folks in these neck of the woods are familiar with that guide to 60's Marvel merchandise that came out a few years ago. There was a helluva lot more that came out then than I thought.
This was one that stuck out;
Here's a whole damn blog on this stuff!
Being a big Batman fan now and knowing how much Batman hates guns (b/c his parents were taken from him by one) and looking back on how the belt came with a gun, my only reaction is
Yeah, the batmobile/copter were both matchbox sized (die-cast metal), they were black & red mostly. IIRC Corgi made them? I've seen more then one size of the batmobile, but not the copter. There was no launcher for the copter as far as I can remember.
I'm a sucker for old school 3 3/4" figures, so I've hung onto my Mego Pocket Heroes Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman. Also Gabriel Lone Ranger & Tonto, Mattel Flash Gordon and Ming, and Remco Sgt. Rock.
