RIP the great comic book artist Carlos Ezquerra, co-creator of Judge Dredd - surely one of the most perfect costume designs ever, drokk it (Prog 10, 1977)

Science Fiction Saturday: Was there ever a more annoying character than Scooter? Seriously. Orko, Snarf, Wheelie, even the obligatory ‘cute’ Filmation character in every Filmation cartoon never held a candle to the sheer annoyance of everyone’s least favourite Gobot, Scooter. That voice, that personality... and he transformed into a scooter too? Feed him to the mechanibals! Swipe for the cardback (1984, Tonka)

Science Fiction Saturday: In one off-screen adventure the Six Million Dollar Man went on a Mission to Mars. Sadly he never seemed to go that far on the television series. Swipe for the card back and to see the other Bionic Adventure sets (1975, Kenner)

Six Million Dollar Sunday: One of the 70s greatest superheroes, Steve Austin, channels Steve Irwin in this model kit... This would have been awesome to see on the show! Swipe for more box art including the comic strip - and yes I know it’s an alligator not a crocodile (1975, Toltoys)

Steppenwolf Sunday: Darkseid’s uncle and Commander of the Dog Cavalry was the Nein Nunb or Belloq of the Super Powers line - a mail-in figure that only got a carded iteration (with minicomic) later on. Of course he would go on to greater fame - or is that infamy? - as a CGI Ciaran Hinds, the main adversary of the Justice League movie. He didn’t really get his Dogs in that movie (just parademons) but it was a dog of a movie so I guess that still counts... Swipe for card back and minicomic cover (1985, Kenner)

Centurions Saturday: who needs Crystal Kane and Sky Vault? Just open the box. It’s a lot easier than spreading your arms and shouting ‘power xtreme’. (Ben Cooper)

Cyclotron Saturday: why? Just why? With all the great superheroes and supervillains in the DC Universe how did Cyclotron ‘the computerised crimefighter’ jump the queue to find a spot in Kenner’s incredible Super Powers collection? He’s a robot programmed by Superman who disguises himself as a human and (wait for it) ‘packs a Cycloclobber 360-degree twist and punch’. That was also the name of a dance move in the 1980s. Swipe for the card back but spoiler his super powers in no way relate to particle acceleration... (1985, Kenner)

Centurions Saturday: What kid wouldn’t want to dress up as arrogant, womanising and ‘daring Air Operations Expert’ Ace McCloud of the Centurions? Come on. He was clearly the coolest (in your face Jake Rockwell! in your moustache Max Ray!) (Ben Cooper)

Happy Batman Day! 
Batman as far as the eye can see... Curiously while Batman has rarely dramatically redesigned his costume, Batman action figures are more like Iron Man with a different suit to match any occasion and/or any crisis!

The Riddler was one of a number of second string Batman characters who gained a new lease on life thanks to exposure on the 1960s Batman television series - so much so that he's become a featured part of Batman's Rogue's Gallery and one of Batman's 'Arch Enemies' in Mego's World's Greatest Super-Heroes range, (debuting in 1974 and lasting until 1979). #toyboxing #mego #worldsgreatestsuperheroes #megoworldsgreatestsuperheroes #70sactionfigures #batman #70stoys #actionfigures #superheroes #supervillains #riddler #batmantoys #batmanday #batmanactionfigures #batmanvillains #batmanroguesgallery #60sbatman #batmantv #riddlertoys #riddleractionfigures #batmantelevision #frankgorshin #vintage #holygrail #toyhunter #toycollector #toysofinstagram #batmanday2018
