New To The Collection Of Cool

I joined a group of fellow toy and action figure 'enthusiasts' on Facebook mostly to discover what gems may be on sale. Of course you know that since American has ten times our Canadian population they have greater access to these older collectibles in the kind of condition that my collection demands. Just the place to find a bargain. So when I saw this pop up at only 65 dollars SHIPPED, I had to jump at it. Usually it's the freaking postal rates from the US that makes me turn down many a good deal. But this one made sense since I have been looking for cool 80s pieces such as this Super Powers lunchbox to add to my collection.

The characters are still colorful and cover the entire lunchbox. Both the front lid and back have embossed titles and characters.

There is very little rust outside or inside the metal container. The thermos is a bit faded but I am impressed I got one WITH the thermos included.

This is a solid piece in great shape after nearly 30 years. I feel like I paid a fair price for a collectible and liked how easy a transaction that it was. I keep scanning that group in case somewhere, sometime, someone may put an Oscar Goldman with Exploding Briefcase up for a quick sale.

From that period in the mid-Seventies when Neal Adams (and his Continuity Studios) were the informal style-setters for DC Comics' art.

For a little while there, every DC superhero poster, towel, lunchbox, book cover, sticker etc. (and a tremendous preponderance of comic book covers) had Adams art. It was great.
