Nope. JUGHEAD #9 will be out next week (hoping that the combination of Derek Charm and Sabrina's charm adds up to something magical), and hopefully I'll get my copy of the B&V GIRLS RULE trade collection. I'll have to review which recent digests I'm still missing copies of. At least ARCHIE BACK TO SCHOOL ANNUAL #271, possibly others.

ROM #1 & 2

Is this a reboot I wasn't paying attention to?  The original series was pretty cool. Bedrock City Comics from Houston actually ran a ROM only booth at the STL convention a few years ago as a gimmick of sorts, and managed to cover costs of the booth.  There are some underground ROM fans out there evidently.  I was a little late to the party, but it would be nice to see all those early issues repackaged for sale.

Yes. IDW has been expanding the number of their properties licensed from Hasbro (and other toy companies), first with MICRONAUTS, then ACTION MAN (which was the British version of the original G.I. Joe), now with ROM. This is all leading into a big crossover event series called REVOLUTION, which will feature all of the aforementioned properties plus the long-running G.I. JOE and TRANSFORMERS titles, and spinning off yet another new/old one, M.A.S.K.

This latest crossover would appear to be building on the success of a prior IDW crossover, TRANSFORMERS VS. G.I. JOE, which recently completed its 13-issue run. I hadn't been following either Transformers or G.I. Joe, but I bought that one simply because the art was drawn by Tom Scioli (co-creator, along with Joe Casey, of Image's GØDLAND series, which I loved) in his usual pseudo-Kirbyesque style.

Thanks for the info, I'll look these up. 

Just wondering when someone might bring
Action Jackson into comic book reality, or even Best Of The West.  Jay, Jamie, Janice, or Josie West might appeal to a younger market demo(horsies!)  Those Viking and Knight characters were pretty awesome as well, but I forget their names.  They would have kicked GI Joe butt going one on one, but the Joe's had better accessories plus the kung-fu grip thing going for them.  I still think Johnny West should get a comic.

You would appear to have a penchant for those briefly-marketed toy lines owned by now long-defunct manufacturers. Marx Toys and Mego Corp. have been out of business for many decades now. Too bad you didn't ask about Stretch Armstrong... I happen to know that one is now owned by Hasbro. No idea who (if anyone) now owns on the ones you mentioned. The only really viable nostalgia toy properties would probably be long-running franchises that had prior equally long-running comic book incarnations.

Today the mailman brought both ARCHIE BACK TO SCHOOL ANNUAL #271 (a month late, after sending an email to orderhelp@archiecomics.com earlier this week), and WORLD OF ARCHIE ANNUAL #62 (which might be a few days early, or a few days late, I'll have to check). So I'll be reading those within the next 24 hours.

I don't know if it's a "penchant" per se, but I've always really liked those action figures, Mego as you mentioned in particular.  The Big Jim, Big Jack, Big Josh, etc. also seem pretty cool.  It's Kirby art in those 70's comic ads, is it not? 

I've always found it interesting that my playing with fighting or war themed "dolls" throughout my youth resulted in me being such a peaceful, kindly, and sensitive person in the long run.  8)

I even like those C.W. McCall themed figures now that I think about it.   :smitten:

I've seen those comic book ads. It is Kirby. Not sure if the King did any actual packaging art for Mattel. I'm blanking on Big Josh and Big Jack, but wasn't there a Bulletman doll? Not the Fawcett/DC character, some Mattel original superhero, like the Captain Laser figure that was a late add-on to the Major Matt Mason toy line of the 1960s -- my dream comic franchise, along with the identically-scaled Ideal's Zeroids and Colorforms' Outer Space Men, but it'll never happen. There were abortive attempts at all of those, that managed to squeak out a single comic or two.

Anyway, back to Kirby. I'm not sure how he got set up on a number of these deals, but I know that he got some decent bucks for the re-designs of the second wave of Kenner's Super Powers figures. That's why the action figures weren't based on Kirby's original Fourth World character designs from 1970 -- it was a way to get Kirby money (that he wouldn't have gotten since he had no rights to the DC characters he'd created). The Mattel stuff obviously came earlier. I think Paul Levitz and Jenette Kahn worked some deal out with Kenner to help him out, and that's when DC wanted him to do the wrap up to the New Gods saga that eventually became the graphic novel The Hunger Dogs. I also remember seeing in the 70s these small carded games (like those slide puzzles and similar low-priced items) that had beautiful package graphics that were pure Kirby, and they were all classic hero characters like Tarzan, The Lone Ranger, etc. Not sure if those were Mattel too, or some other toy company.

C.W. McCall sounds like it should be some kind of toy figure trying to tap into the brief C.B. radio fad of the 1970s (there was even an Archie story about that). Can't say that I'm familiar, though.
