Now, the actual Hulk and Thing dolls I have on my shelf right behind me. I always like Thing better, mostly for that there were less toys of him in stores then.
    I still have the big Hulk figure, but it is covered in magic marker from when I was playing with him and dotting marks on him as if he had been shot by bullets.
    I don't have the cage anymore though.



    The Hulk toy I really wanted when I was a kid and only saw once at a Lionel's Playworld was the large diecast figure.

    Look at that fellah! It's massive and probably weighed a ton! I remember my mom telling me it was too expensive. Years later a friend of mine confirmed that it did retail for something like $20 in 1979, so yeah.

    Hey look! Buy it now for $109!

    I never saw that die cast Hulk figure before, the guy's description on that 1st link is pretty funny.

    and what the hell is that other hulk? Disco Hulk?

    When y oldest son was 4 or so ('86 maybe), I bought him a few of the Super Powers figures, picking out the ones I wanted, like Doc Fate, Martian Manhunter, and Hawkman. We went to a toy store one Saturday because "Batman" and "Robin" were there signing autographs.

    It's a bootleg Hulk from God knows where. Google "bootleg superheroe toys" and it will bring up some crazy results.

    I had a ton of toys, including a JLA mirror from the 70s which my Mom broke.

    Anyone every seen that one for sale.

    I also really dug my hang-ups, and used them to decorate a birthday party (i'm on the far left).

    hi shaxper i know what u mean, i think many of us identified with robin or one of the other teen titans growing up. i love the super powers range like many people. i purchased this unpunched robin sp figure about a year and a half-ish ago. about $10 as it was from a seller who found some old stock in a warehouse that never went to stores. i was really grateful and happy to get this figure, especially as it was still in its original packaging because i remember around six years ago i went to a store which specialized in rare toys and i saw the robin figure there (punched) hanging in a display cabinet and it was $120 and i remember thinking oh crap, will i ever get the chance to buy one still in its packaging without having to pay alot of $$$. (the shop later went out of business -- not surprising really when you saw the prices they were charging at the time).

    i love this figure. sadly batman passed away many years ago. i think either darth vader killed him or barbie ran over him in her car. but seriously, im not sure what happened to batman. im not sure what happened to alot of my toys. i had large darth vader, leia, chewbecca, han solo and others and i have no idea where they went? but robin is still around though in storage. sadly the box is no more. i guess that either got thrown out or crushed or something, i dont remember.

    though metal things you can see on the back of his hands (in case people are wondering) are magnetic -- basically you could hang him upside down on the fridge or (if bats was still around) they could hold hands.

    How come so many of the Mego heroes had such tanned skin? As a kid, I used to wonder if Superman was actually latino.
