Captain America Shooting Gallery!

msh_captam_shootinggallery

OK, this has got to be one of the weirdest rack toys of Cap ever made... Yes, a shooting gallery Cap toy is plenty weird enough, especially with those duck targets (what, no Modok or Red Skull targets?)... but the icing on the cake is the image of Nightshade on the cover -- she was a psychotic madwoman, and nobody I've talked to has any idea how this got produced with her in it (and that includes former Cap writer Tony Isabella, who wrote at least most of the issues she appeared in!).

AHI Captain America Parachutist!

msh_captamparachutistahi

OK, this is one of the few parachutist toys that makes a certain amount of sense. I mean, there's no way you can convince me a Planet of the Apes, Hulk, or Mr. Spock parachutist works, but Captain America? I recall at least a few Cap stories in which he parachuted into some location!

Captain America 7-Eleven Glass!

I wish the seller of this item had thought to roll up a piece of paper inside the glass... that would've made this composited photo perfect!

1960s Marx Puppet!

Well, this photo certainly looks better than the last photo I had of this puppet... at least it doesn't look like Cap's doing an Al Jolson impression!

Italian Captain America Glider!

For some reason, Marvel toys produced in Italy have a worse track record for matching the license than any other country, so far as I can tell... witness this Captain America Glider!
