And now we start seeing the action figures from the Secret Wars line! Here's the second Baron Zemo, first introduced as The Phoenix in a story written by Tony Isabella (that was later turned into a Power Records Book and Record Set). All the Secret Wars figures came with the "secret shield" that used the same flicker/vari-vue "technology" seen on those gumball dispenser rings I've already posted.
It's amazing to me that any of these ended up still packaged, because most true comics geeks would've opened the package up to see which heroes were represented on the balloons, as well as whether or not the balloons were the same or different!
OK, so maybe I was wrong yesterday... the ping-pong ball gun (here called a "Ball Blaster") has been a rack toy standard for decades! I myself used to have a Hulk one, a long time ago. I'm certain there's also been Spider-Man and Batman versions, too!
I have been a Navy journalist, word processor, graphic designer, medical assisting student, cook, and truck driver, and am currently an eBay seller as well as an employee at a big retail store. I have been and always will be into comics, sf, tv, cartoons, monsters, oldies rock, and lots of other stuff.
