Here is a Super Museum and Giftshop Round Tuit plastic token that was purchased from the Super Museum in Metropolis Illinois. This token is one of several items I purchased upon my 2018 return to the Superman Celebration after not being back for an unbelievable fifteen years.
Produced by Koko’s Confectionery & Novelty in 2018, this is a Justice League Superman Light-Up Squeeze Candy with Toy. the wand area contains artificially flavored strawberry liquid candy. At the base is a yellow button that, when pushed, turns on an LED light that illuminates the red candy creating an appearance of a glow stick.
Produced in 2018 by the Unemployed Philosophers Guild, this Superman Soap smells absolutely wonderful! The soap measures at 2.25-inches long, 1.5-inches wide, and 1-inch high and comes wrapped in a very colorful package that features a classic image of Superman breaking chains.
NJ Croce Co. Inc. has been churning out bendable figures for several years now. This is their Action Bend-Deez! wave of figures that have a completely original look as compared to their previous releases. Designed by artist Jason Meents, this bendable Superman figure stands at 4-inches tall and has a fabric cape.
The popular animated series Justice League Action was featured in McDonald’s Happy Meal toys in 2018. This is an unused Happy Meal box that was given out at the time. The box features the character artwork of Superman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Batman, Batgirl, and The Flash. There is also an ad on it encouraging kids to ask their parent’s permission to download the McPlay app which allowed you to “create your own comic.”
This is a program from the 2018 celebration which features amazing artwork by artist Jon Pinto which was created exclusively for the event which celebrated its 40th anniversary. The program features an event map, a tribute to Margot Kidder, a detailed schedule, bios of all the guests including Brandon Routh, Ilya Salkind, Jack O’Halloran, Jeff East, Aaron Smolinski, John Haymes Newton, Alex Saviuk and many others.
This is an adhesive smartphone ring and kickstand. You can find these at the back of many smartphones these days. This one, produced by iRing, is designed with an embossed plastic Superman ‘S’ symbol against a circular field.
iRing theoretically had the license to produce this, but there is no indication of a DC Comics copyright on its packaging. Additionally, there is no indication of the year it was produced.
Here we go with another bootleg Superman item. This is a bag of a pair of Superman cartoon socks made by an unknown company. The only label on this package is a UPC sticker that says “cartoon socks $3.49.” With a design looking similar to that of South Park, “Superman” appears on these socks with googly eyes and brown hair.
After the success of Mattel’s 11-inch line of figures, the company released 6-inch variants. The figures are a completely new sculpt from their larger line. This Superman figure comes with a cloth cape and has just 5-points of articulation.
This is a Six Flags Superman dome magnet that is sold at all the Six Flags theme parks. It features a close-up image of the New 52 Superman with the name in Letterman style font running up the left side. This magnet is 2 1/4-inches in diameter and from its base to the highest point of its solid acrylic dome it is is 5/8-inches high. It’s a fairly strong and vibrantly colored magnet.
