[YouTube] Superman & Wonder Woman Stuff ('70s/'80s/'90s)

When I was younger I was a big Superman fan though as I mentioned on Tuesday, I eventually moved more toward Batman. Both heroes often had similar toys as Mego, Corgi, and other companies would usually include DC Comics' most popular characters in each toy line. I decided to include Wonder Woman here as I had originally planned on including items with a few DC super heroes that are not Batman but then opted not to as I really don't have many things that don't involve the key three, though Captain Marvel does make an appearance here. I also didn't think I had enough Wonder Woman products for a separate video but maybe the few I show were enough. In any case, many super hero toys were released in the '70s and both Superman and Wonder Woman had a lot of success during the decade as the Superman movie starring Christopher Reeve released in 1978 while the Wonder Woman TV show starring Lynda Carter ran from 1975-1979.

In the video I show a four book set, a Superman Mix or Match book, movie action figures, a Mego doll and die-cast figure, a Remco toy, Corgi vehicles, two Playskool puzzles, a record, hand mirror, and two Hallmark ornaments. There are a few more items in the photos below but not too many beyond what was shown in the video.

Although I love action figures, I think the ornaments and Playskool puzzles are my favorites here. The Mix or Match Storybook is great too and the Wonder Woman hand mirror might be the most unique super hero item I've got.
