Ideal came out with a Justice League set featuring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman, didn't they?  

That must've been the Justice League's cave entrance.

Give that man a cigar!

Here it is, the legendary JLA playset from Ideal.  Asking price at the site where I found this image? $10,000.  And they may get it...last year the empty box alone (albeit in great shape) went for $3,000!

Well, blow me down!  Wink    

Er, I mean,  Puff, puff, puff!  Wink  

I seem to recall a DIFFERENT window box with Batman, Robin, Joker, and Penguin on a mountain (for some reason, I also remember an Indian, too).  

I seem to recall Robin's foot was about to be caught in a bear trap.  

Does ANYONE remember this box?  Am I mis-remembering?  Did I have some sort of weird dream?  

I DO remember having Superman, Batman, Robin, and Joker from that series, as well as the Superman and Batman Creepy Crawler molds from that time period.  Heh.   I remember "turning" the heroes into their civilian IDs by removing the capes!  Wink

My money's on the "weird dream" option, Gernot!  Smiley

I'm too young to remember this toy when it came out (gosh, it feels good to finally say that about something!), but I think the various figures may have been shuffled around to various sets and even sold separately.  

For sure there was this one variant:



No bear trap, but Robin's foot is sort of "caught" in the packaging!  And that's not a bear trap in front of Diana, but a "ring of fire" (no doubt left over from the JLA's deadly battle with Johnny Cash).

LOL, Nightwing!  

I think I REMEMBER seeing the variant set in an Arlen's store a L-O-N-G time ago!  Geez, that takes me back...  

Thanks for the memories!  Smiley
