Thrift Store Finds: Batman Fun Case Plus Bonus Activity Books

The last item that I picked up last week at a local thrift store was A Batman Fun Case for three dollars. The box promised two jumbo coloring and activity books, one digest coloring and activity book with stickers, one activity book with stickers and a four-pack of crayons. Unfortunately, the jumbo coloring activity book with Batman and Robin on the cover was not included nor was the box of crayons. The copyright date is 2010 and was produced by Bendon International, Inc.

The digest coloring and activity book measures 5 1/4" by 8 1/4" and the front cover states that stickers are included. Unfortunately, all I had was a page of missing stickers. None of the pages were colored or marked.

The front cover of the Batman activity book with stickers features the Dark Knight and Robin:

The back cover of the Batman activity book with stickers features door hanger that you can gut out:

The stickers are pretty colorful and features Batman, Robin, Mr. Freeze, the Joker, the Penguin, Two-Face, Man-Bat, Killer Croc and even logos (I was disappointed that there were no Catwoman stickers but then she is also absent from the coloring and activity books):

The only Batman jumbo coloring and activity book that was found inside the Batman Fun Case was the one featuring Batman and the Joker on the front cover:

The back cover features a match two card game that can be cut out (nice to see the Riddler but still no Catwoman):

Also included inside the Batman Fun Case was three jumbo coloring and activity books. Some of the pages has pencil and crayon markings but they are mostly on the puzzle pages. These were not originally part of the set and sold separately for a dollar each with a copyright date of 2012. They were available at the local Dollar General but the only one that I actually seen and picked up was the The Caped Crusader featuring the Penguin on the cover because I actually picked it up a few months ago but never got around posting about it here.

The first Batman jumbo coloring and activity book is Bad Guys Beware featuring Two-Face on the front cover:

Whew, I think this has to be one of the longest posts that I have ever done here. That is why I didn't include any scans of the coloring, puzzle or maze pages.

Thrift Store Find: 2003 Movie Hulk

I found a 2003 movie Hulk action figure for a dollar at a local thrift store last week. He is tall at 6 3/4" and his muscles are freaking huge.

Thrift Store Find: Unknown 2002 Toy Biz Spiderman

I found this unknown 2002 Toy Biz Spider-Man at a local thrift store last week for a dollar. If I had to give him a name, then he would be Freaky Fingers Spider-Man. All the fingers on his right hand bends back while two of his fingers on his left hand can bend all the way to his palm to look like he is activating his web shooter. Standing at just a little over six inches, he does have wear on his eyes and legs. He knee joints are rather odd too.

His back looks like peeling plastic or he had something attached to it at one time.

Thrift Store Find: Power Punch Batman

I recently picked up a Power Punch Batman action figure for a dollar at a local thrift store. He is from the Batman Begins line from Mattel. Standing at 5 1/2 inches, he has a battle damage costume. You can twist his upper torso to the right until he locks in place. There is a small button in the back of his utility belt that is pressed to make him use his power punch ability.

Unfortunately, none of his accessories were found including his cape.

Thrift Store Find: Hydro Suit Batman

I hit a few of the local thrift stores yesterday afternoon and found a 2003 Hydro Suit Batman from Mattel for only a dollar. This is a pretty cool action figure because his costume is green, his gauntlets are webbed and he has flippers on his feet. He's pretty tall too for he stands almost seven inches.

Unfortunately, he did not come with any accessories such as his bat-shaped breathing tank.
