More from Charlies Basement

boxed mattel rodan

This is a follow up to the first Charlies Basement segment in which I took random photos from a friends toy collection. Above is a boxed Mattel Rodan, that one made me a little jealous as did the perfect mailer boxed Shogun Warriors.

Carded Super Joe figures are extremely hard to find, I've never seen a loose example of the commander in this outfit, let alone carded. Note that the hands are disintegrating which is really common with these guys.

Spider-Woman halloween costume?

Spider-Woman certainly did appear on a lot of merch right after she was created--i remember those big two-page spreads in Marvel and DC books that were contests involving some candy bar.

DC had basically The Super Friends, and Marvel had Spidey, Cap, Hulk, and Spider-Woman! even as a kid i thought "she's not on the same level as these other guys."

Marvel gave it the ol' college try!

everybody has a crush on spider-woman

I barely ever had a comic with Spider-Woman, and still had a crush on her. I think the reasons were:

1. Flowing black hair

2. Primary color scheme is eye-catching

3. Costume looked like body paint. With no belts, loose gloves, etc. Completely skin-tight, minus her underarm webs.

She was indeed touted like Marvel's Wonder Woman, wasn't she? Even had her own cartoon!

I want to visit Charlie's house. Oh Charlie!!!
