I totally loved these as a kid. The cloth costumes were the beginning and the end for me. I don't like my action figures to have painted on clothing if I can avoid it. Hakes is auctioning off a whole bunch of these in their next auction. Order you catalogue today. Best auction house in the US.

Great post sir.., my first ones were the removable mask Batman and Robin.., and I remember being floored by the quality that went into Robin.

Just wish he didn't have the damn cowlicks and silly smirk on his face.

Then got Spidey when I found both him and Cap together on the shelf and could only get one. Later on I couldn't believe just how bad Cap was done. No gloves (because of the shield..), intense Kirby-eyes, lack of white on his arms and no buccaneer-cuffed boots.

My favorite hero of all time and he was the worst of the bunch. Ah, well, those days still had grand memories.

Getting Batgirl later certainly made up for it.

I got a bunch of them one Christmas, Superman, Spidey, Batman and Robin, Aquaman. I had my own superhero team. They even teamed up with Big Jim and GI JOE all the time.
