Did you ever think that you'd see an A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics) scientist in a 1960s licensed product? Well, now you have!

"Pinball" Game!

Ah, these pinball-styled games were advertised in all the comics in the 1970s, weren't they?

Captain America Hot Wheels Winnebago!

OK, this toy car concept I can kind of buy... if you're not trying to sell it as Captain America's Winnebago, anyway. But a comics geek like myself? I could see myself buying a recrecational vechicle like this one and trying to talk my wife into customizing it similarly (wouldn't expect to be allowed to do so, but I'd try to talk her into it).

Superbaby by Amsco!

msh_captamerica_superbaby.jpg

One of the weirder ideas has been to produce baby versions of popular licensed characters... in some cases it worked (like "A Pup Named Scooby-Doo", in my opinion), and in some cases it just doesn't ("Baby Looney Tunes")... but I have to wonder if the whole thing started with Amsco's line of Superbabies... yes, baby versions of super-heroes. The Cap one, at least, is supposed to have blonde hair... but, then, so does the Batman Superbaby (trust me, it does).

At least the costume's pretty much correct, save for the mask... which is more than you can say for Mego's 8" Captain America action figure.

Gulliver Plastic Figure from Argentina!

OK, so this wasn't one of Gulliver's better sculpts... not bad, though! Gulliver seems to be an Argentina company, responsible for a whole line of plastic figures!

1960s Board Game!

Now, this 1960s Cap board game looks extremely cool, even if the Mandarin's on the game board! I wonder what comic book was included with it?
