I'd have to say the dumbest thing is the Flash Motorcycle action figure.  HIS POWER IS TRANSPORTATION!!!

But that's the thing about the Spider Mobile. It is unashamedly a gimmick. That was the whole point!

I'm sure the Flash toy was made so that the character could physically cover distance for little kid owners.

I wonder if any manufacturer ever made an action figure that was somehow able to actually run?

Damn it/ I could not help but do this


Speed Buggy: "Hey Spidy...Rrrrm Rrrrm Beep Beep. Ready to fight crime?"



Those dune buggies were a very 70's thing.
Remember Wonderbug?

Actually, I do. It was a consequence of growing up in the 70's. Dig the chick's Farrah-hair.

Would that be THE WONDERFUL Wonder Bug?

Here's something I never understood. I thought a "bug" was a VW Beetle. Growing up, no one near me had a dune buggy (not a lot of beaches you could drive one on along Lake Ontario). Were they ALSO called bugs? I mean, generally?

I dunno. We just called the dune buggies, even though everything here is forest.

Hell's no.

A 'bug' is a VW Beetle. Not the new crappy ones. Only the awesome ones with the 1600 or higher CC air cooled engines.

I have heard people refer to ANYTHING (incorrectly) with one of those motors referred as a bug. Even the old vans with all the awesome windows and Kharmann Ghias.

I've called a dune buggy a 'bug' but it would make a little bit of sense if it had that style of motor in it. They'd still be incorrect, just not as badly Smiley

A buggy is different from a bug.  Bug is nearly trademarked while a buggy is a slang term like a low rider.

I've never heard a low rider referred to as a buggy.

Regional maybe?

Wonder Bug is also one of the only cars to have a secret identity...

I was the only kid in my school to know what "schlep" meant.  Smiley

And I just noticed that they made that custom license plate with crooked letters.
