1980 Knickerbocker Superheroes Catalog
Knickerbocker was always known for plush novelties but in the late 70s, they decided to enlist some super powered talent, in the form of the hottest TV and movie superstars.
Knickerbocker chose some of the more popular TV and movie characters to captilize on for some interesting plush and construction sets.
While Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk reigned on TV, Superman was a bonafide movie star by this point, I love the hair on this guy.
For the Star Trek movie, Knickerbocker released Kirk and Spock as plush dolls with wonderfully sculpted plastic heads. The results are...surreal.
I get asked about these sets about twice a year, they were called fiddlesticks and they featured the dynamic duos from both pubishing companies.
