    I remember the Aurora company’s Marvel model adverts on the back covers of Marvel Comics always said, “More of the Fantastic Four coming soon.” I wish that “more” had included these babies!

    These would be a real nice set to have. Fond memories of my young Comic Book-dom in the ’63-’66 period were reading some stories about Mister Fantastic, Invisible Girl, Doctor Doom, The Thing, and The Human Torch. I had a friend who’s older brother collected them. I loved those stories.
