Welcome to the Fortress of Markitude! #6

NOTE:  all of these pictures were taken a few years ago when the place was less cluttered.  All text is in the present tense anyway.

            For this instalment we’re focusing on more items on the westside shelf of glasses and stuff.

            From the left we have a Thermos from a Superman: The Movie Aladdin lunchbox set, the Superman Slurpee cup, and the “Superman  holding the world” mug.  To the right are two Pepsi / Pizza Hut glasses, and another Aladdin Thermos, this time from a Super Powers lunchbox set.

            Here’s a close-up of the next item, a “Super Smurf” mug.

            Next is a Supergirl Pizza Hit glass and another of Supes.  Between them you can see a DC Direct Bizarro.

            Stacked atop each other are two thermal photo mugs for Superman: The Movie.  To their right is an odd paint-it-yourself Superman statuette.

This has a copyright date of 19*78, so we must assume it was released as a tie-in for the movie.  It’s not hollow, it’s got a hole in the bottom like those bathtub squeaky toys, although Superman doesn’t squeak.  (How dare you insinuate such a thing.)

Next we have a Superman Soakee-type of bath soap (from the 1980s), flanked by a Superman-vs-Darkseid version of Rock-’Em-Sock-’Em-Robots.  Perhaps in times to come we will zoom in on this little jewel.

Well, that’s the extent of your guided tour THIS week, little friends!  We’ll see you Thursday for another new music compilation in this month of sharing!
