Argentina Tattoos and Thingmaker Mold!

Yes, as I've noted here and elsewhere, Argentina had some of the best superhero merchandise going on... here's some tattoos they had there!




These things above are Thingmaker molds from Mattel -- you'd pour "Goop" into the mold, put the mold in the Thingmaker machine, which cooked it so the Goop became hard plastic! The mold on the left is supposed to be a Batman mold -- there's bats on it, that's for sure...

  1. I had these molds and used my little brother's "Thingmaker" when he was not using it and it became mine when he got bored with it and moved on to other toys!

    My best friend and I would spend our allowance on the "Glow In The Dark Goop" and make just a HUGE pile of the "Superman" and "Batman" figures with elastic bands built into them so we could shoot them across the room.

    THEN, when we had a film day in class, we would be shooting these glow in the dark things at each other and the Teacher would take them away from us! SO WHAT! We had an endless supply of them as long as we were able to get more "Goop" and it drove her BOONKERS!

    She did not know where we were getting them until the last day of the year when she called BOTH his Mum and mine in and asked them just where we were getting them because she could not find them at the local 5 & 10 cent store!

    When our Mums said "They have been making the things all year with their "Thingmakers." and proceeded to tell her in detail how it was done.
    Our Teacher tossed her hands up in the air and gave up and just gave us the box LOADED with all the figures she took over the year and we split them between us!


    The "Goop" was called "Plastigoop" and it's chemical name is "Plastizol" and is the same stuff used in "Mr. Twister" fishing baits and other like products!
