Star Wars Spock Playing Cards

I received my daily newsletter from SuperHeroStuff in my inbox today and was shocked to find this:

The Star Wars Spock Playing Cards is actually listed that way on their website:
The photo and the description clearly states Star Trek so someone goofed big time on the heading. The sad thing is that link actually has Star Wars too.

Women Wednesday: Wonder Woman Jumbo Coloring Book and Activity Book

I picked up a copy of the Wonder Woman Jumbo Coloring and Activity Book at the local Dollar Tree yesterday. The back cover has a copyright of 2018 but the first page has a copyright of 2017. The pages are supposed to be easy to tear out but I won't be testing that. Activities include draw your own Wonder Woman story, create a newspaper headline, decorate your own cape, how many words can you make, Tic-Tac-Toe, design your own logo, design a new costume, which image is different and others. Of course, there is are drawings of Wonder Woman that you can color opposite of each activity.

Miniature Batman Figurine

This Justice League miniature Batman figurine is the last one in the set that I picked up at the local Dollar Tree. What strikes me odd is that the black bat symbol on his chest is outlined in yellow. This marks him as the Rebirth Batman so I can only assume that the rest of the Justice League members are also from the Rebirth era of DC Comics.

Women Wednesday: Miniature Wonder Woman Figurine

Not only is today Earth Day but it's also Women Wednesday. This week's edition is a Justice League miniature Wonder Woman figurine. I actually picked one up about a month ago at the local Dollar Tree and forgot all about posting a picture. I then picked up another one a few weeks ago so I now have two of her.

Miniature Superman Figurine

This Justice League miniature Superman figurine was picked up at the local Dollar Tree a few weeks ago. The blue of his costume has a metallic look to it and reflects light. His pose is interesting because his left leg is lifted up and slightly bent. Maybe he was trying to imitate Captain Morgan.

Invasion of the Foamies Day 6: Batman

The last member of the superhero foamies is non other than Batman. I guess Captain America, Hulk, Spider-Man, Black Panther and Rocket Raccoon couldn't find another Marvel Comics superhero to join them so they recruited the Dark Knight from DC Comics. He looks a little weird without the ears on his cowl and he kind of looks like a penguin from behind.


Note: This post makes #2,222 at Moongem Comics. Thanks for visiting and I hope to continue posting here.

T-shirt Tuesday: The Flash Logo Distressed T-shirt

My sister bought me two t-shirts for Easter this weekend while she was shopping at the local Walmart's. One of them was the Flash logo distressed t-shirt. I'm wearing it as I write this but the picture below was taken with it draped over the side of my bed. The red is much darker than my other Flash logo distressed t-shirt that I have had for years.

Superman Batman Candy Sticks

Happy Easter. I picked up a bag of Superman Batman Candy Sticks that I found in the Easter section at the local Dollar Tree. I was supposed to get 25 boxes but got 26 boxes. Each box had two candy sticks and some of the images were used with the DC Trinity Candysticks that I picked up last year for Halloween at the local Dollar General. They were made in Colombia and distributed by World Confections.

Here is the front of the Superman Batman Candy Sticks bag:

Here is the back of the Superman Batman Candy Sticks bag:

My bag had 14 Superman boxes (4 green, 8 red and yellow, 2 red). All of them feature his upper torso with two sides featuring extreme close up shots of his face:

There were only 12 Batman boxes in my bag (3 blue, 2 red and orange, 7 yellow). None of the images featured extreme close up shots of his face.

I am a little disappointed that none of the boxes had both DC superheroes on them. I guess they didn't want me to call them World's Finest Candy Sticks.

Toon Trio Candy Sticks

The local Dollar Tree had bags of these Toon Trio Candy Sticks stocked in their Easter section and I picked one up. The bag really doesn't have a name so I just called it Toon Trio because it features characters from three different cartoon shows: Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo and The Flintstones. Each bag is supposed to have 25 pieces or boxes with two candy sticks in each box but mine had 26 boxes. They were made in Colombia and distributed by World Confections.

Here is the front of the Toon Trio Candy Sticks bag:

Here is the back of the Toon Trio Candy Sticks bag:

I ended up getting eight boxes with Tom and Jerry (six were yellow and two were red). All the boxes had both of them on one side while Tom was on the other side of the yellow boxes and Jerry was on the other side of the red boxes.

I ended up getting 8 Scooby-Doo boxes (5 were purple and 3 were green). The whole gang is shown on the purple boxes with the Mystery Machine on one side with a close up of Scooby on the other side. The green boxes have only Velma, Daphne and Scooby on one side and a different close up of Scooby on the other side.

The Flintstones should have been called Fred and Barney since they are mostly featured on the 10 boxes that I got (6 were red and 4 were blue). Fred and Barney are one side of the red boxes with an extreme close up of Fred Flintstone is the one the other side. Dino is on one side of the blue boxes with Barney Rubble on the other side.

The pencil sharpener features Diana with her sword while the memo pad features her crossing her bracelets. The blue eraser is winged shaped and features her logo in gold.

All the images are comic art and the package has a copyright of 2018 by Peachtree Playthings
