The 1977 REMCO Toys Catalog

remco batman toys

Remco's name was purchased in 1974 by Azrak Hamway, a successful manufacturer of rack toys. AHI used the Remco brand to sell a more upscale toy but one that still utilized the many licenses integral to their core business.

1977 saw the introduction of Mickey Mouse to the fold and more Superhero (especially Batman) related products which would eventually become the bread and butter of the company for the rest of the decade..

Thanks to Steve F. for these marvelous scans also a person with on the images for pages with descriptions:

Holy Deprived Childhood! There was a Batman Trik-Trak!? Was this ever released, does anyone know?

I had both of the electronic Trek and Space:1999 guns.. The S:1999 stunner had a motorized cam shaft which made the colored lights flash in sequence. It was brilliant!

I would love to have one of those Space:1999 guns.

My cousin had the Batman Trik-Trak. I didn't like him but I loved going to his house and playing with it.

Yet another great flashback. I had that Star Trek gun with the little end caps to project different spacecraft on the walls. There was another version with a wider barrel that my cousin had. Good times.
