Toy Web Round Up
December 30, 2007

I don’t feel like going overboard on a big blog post today, so instead I’ll just gather a few neat things I’ve seen around the web recently.

First, Christophe of the Hall of Justice webpage has made a couple of really nice visual checklists for Mattels’ JLU and DCSH/DCUC lines. Click on each one to enlarge.

Speaking of DCUC, the first wave is now hitting sporadically at local Targets and Toys R Us stores, I haven’t found them yet, but Chris Karath has and he gives a really nice review of them along with his usual great pictures on his blog. Go check it out! And really, if you aren’t already reading Chris’ blog, you should be. He puts me to shame with his consistently great toy posts, among other varied topics. Another great toy related blog is Kastor’s Korner. Good pictures, good stories, good folks. 

Finally,  here is a bunch of Kenner Super Powers commercials from the 80s, thanks to the best time water ever, YouTube:

Since I was in high school at the time these came out, I don’t remember them at all. But they’re pretty cool. And they make me feel like an old, old man! Dynomite!
