The bottom picture is an eraser - batgirl character - pencil fits up between her legs and cape.

Thanks Andy,

Could I ask you a few more questions - What would you put the value on these? Do you know when they were made? Were they really painted like this set or did they come solid color like the green batgirl and a collector painted them?

thanks,

Ha, I wish I had an organized collection to show, some of it's boxed, some displayed in my home and my studio, and even some in Japan, but I will post some stuff, I enjoy looking at other peoples collections so I will share.

My understanding is the figures are from the 80s and as far as I know came unpainted in a variety of colors. My plan was always to paint them myself but it falls into the someday category.

Hi, the painted set above were not initially made by Gulliver.The first 10 came out in 1978 in a very hard rubber in Italy (Mauro Martini Giaccotoli) that were handpainted and available in carded and bagged packages as well. You can tell the original Italian ones because they have the name of the character raised on the base:
- Batman
- Robin
- Batgirl
- Superman (reversed emblem colors)
- Green Lantern
- Supergirl
- Flash
- Green arrow
- Hawkman
- Aquaman

Then in 1981 the set was expanded to include:
- Clark Kent
- Catwoman
- Captain Marvel
- Joker
- Penguin
- Riddler
and remolded as a Pepsi premium in Brazil (possibly by Gulliver) and molded in a multitude of solid colors, like the Ideal playset figures were done years earlier.

There are tons of Mexican recasts around (check Hawkman's wings, Flash's wings, Catwoman's whip etc to spot the fakes)

I have an entire gallery on the Batstuff Facebook page about these figures.

And for Andy, a fairly nice set of fan/collector painted ones:

The red Batgirl eraser has nothing to do with his set and was also part of an early 80's foreign set.
