Vintage 1970's BATMAN TOYS Comic Book Ad

Does anybody else remember these full-page advertisements that ran in DC Comic Books in the 70's? They were from a company that sold superhero merchandise. As a little kid I used to order their catalogs & drool for days, ha ha! They were jam-packed with toys & books that were all comic book character related: Batman, Robin, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern / Arrow, etc... There were Mego dolls, action figures, vehicles, play sets, etc... This ad features a few very very RARE toys. For example, you NEVER see those "Stunt Cycles" with Batman, Penguin, & The Joker! That "Styrofoam Bat-Plane" is RARE because you know they were all destroyed by playing with them, ha ha! The only semi-common item on that page is the "Batman Squirt Gun" that's shaped like his head. I have one of those in a display case & it's one of my favorite pieces just because it's so weird. One last thing, this ad is from 1976.
