Wonder Woman wheels and statuette

TVTA’s vintage toy collection grows just a tad bigger this week as I’m very pleased to report the addition of a 1979 Corgi Juniors Wonder Woman car… And it’s not in bad condition considering it’s age – with the front decal, wind screen, and Wondy in the cockpit all present and correct, and with the wheels and suspension in working order 🙂

I also received a Wonder Woman Gal Gadot movie statuette completely free with a comic lot purchase I made. Bonus 😁 The statuette is officially licensed but otherwise uncredited for date and company.

 

And lastly, another Corgi Juniors… the Batmobile, 1976…


Thanks for looking!

My Second Barbie – she’s a Wonder Woman!


Presenting, my second Barbie… (first one here)

Dear readers, I am thrilled to add my second Barbie to TVTA’s toy collection – the 2003 Mattel Barbie DC Comics Playline Edition Wonder Woman doll.


My Barbie as Wonder Woman came mint in her original box, complete with accessories and a mini lunchbox keychain. A display stand is also included.

The reverse of the box shows an uncredited Wonder Woman comic artwork (possibly by Bruce Timm from Justice League Unlimited era, anyone?), and an image of the three DC Playline Edition Barbie dolls available at the time: Catgirl, Wonder Woman, and Supergirl.


She’s Wonder Woman, and she rules, but she’s also Barbie… therefore she must strike her glamour poses…


I was tempted to get one of the many exquisite Barbie Wonder Woman dolls based on the modern Gal Gadot version, but hesitated for the moment in favour of a more traditional comic book Wonder Woman + traditional Barbie look.

Honestly though, examples like the one below are going to be hard to resist!


In other Wonder Woman news…

Here is my freshly scanned copy of Odyssey of the Amazons – a ‘Before Wonder Woman’ tale. I’m hoping to jump into this epic story during my two days off before the weekend slog at work.

 

And finally, for those of you who just can’t get enough of Wonder Woman…

Look out for TVTA’s upcoming Wonder Woman tribute post, scheduled for this October in time for a very important film release 😉


Thank you for being Wonderful with us 🙂
