Pod Stallions 34: Disappointing Merchandise

This month's topic is some of the  disappointing toy lines that have stemmed from our more beloved properties over the years.

It's totally done out of love (as we both freely admit we bought and still own a lot of this stuff) but we talk about toys for Men in Black, the Phantom, Star Trek 4 and 5, Space:1999, Superman the movie, Doctor Who and much, much more.

Dixie & Lipton Star Wars Collector's Kit

I will admit that I spent my pocket money on Star Wars Dixie cups more than once (I lived behind a grocery store as a kid) but I never saw this cool promo, I'd have been all over it.

Star Wars Toothbrushes by Oral B

This is a great catalog from 1983 which smartly has the good people of Oral B cross promoting with the Empire.

I vividly remember my dentist having a huge display of these toothbrushes and him not giving me one because I was 12 (which I begrudgingly understood).

More spacey Dental Hygiene after the jump!

Sales Leaders

They sold Pet Food  by day but at night, this sales team dealt in erotic adventure and it was always in stock!

Mego Batgirl

With the passing of Yvonne Craig, I thought I'd pay tribute with Mego. As a kid I truly wanted a Batgirl figure, my crush on Craig was the motivating factor but i had no idea of this at my young age. In the end, my fear of what my friends would think won out and I've always regretted that weakness. When I first began collecting, she was my #1 target and i don't care what my friends think about that.

JJ Armes meet Kojak

Both these guys were based on real people, Kojak was an amalgam of several people who worked on a real life case but Armes was a real life detective with prosthetic hands. I'm not sure about the van being real however, just in my dreams sadly...
