Super Friends Magnet

This neat little item was sent to me by F.O.A.M.er Jon Knutson, and its one that I've never seen before--thanks Jon!

I like how the manufacturer tried to gin up some excitement for this piece by slapping "Hey Kids!" on the top of the package. Its just a magnet, fellas...not really all that exciting.

Unless you're an obsessive Aquaman fan, of course; then seeing an item like this makes your day!

On a side note, I'm curious about the additional "Super-Villains" logo added--I wonder how deep into the DC bench these magnets went? Joker, The Penguin, Lex Luthor most likely, maybe even Brainiac, The Riddler, Catwoman.

Black Manta? Dare to dream...

F.O.A.M.er Brian Heiler just happened to send me this photo of the above magnet in use, less than a day before this post was scheduled to go up. Serendipity!

As you can see from this pic, there were in fact Catwoman and Riddler magnets. Black Manta seems like a reach, though you never know...

I have one of these, too. A friend from an old "list" group sent it to me when I did him a favor I've now forgotten.

There's Catwoman, the Joker, and the Riddler right there on the fridge, Rob, so that answers atleast part of your question....! :-)

A blast from the past! I used to have that Robin magnet way back in the day.
