Fantastic items, A. Pennyworth! Thanks for sharing!

The models are too cool! The box art/photos were so appealing back in the 60s.

The GH cards--a lot of great publicity photos were used in that set!

That is such a rare Halloween pic--Batman and Hornet together again!

Great stuff!

Of the Whitman books, I have "Danger," but the others have been difficult to come by in mint or near mint condition. Always loved the painting for the "Crime Busting" cover!

Thanks!

Awesome Green Hornet stuff. Another show that should be on DVD.

I have always wanted to start a Green Hornet collection. All I have is a Johnny Lightning Black Beauty and a signed Van Williams print. I'll try to get pictures up this weekend.

Green Hornet and Kato action figures (Mediacom Toy Corporation) and Bobbleheads (Hollywood Collectibles Group) with the 1966 TV tie-in books, "The Infernal Light" (Dell) by Ed Friend and "The Case of the Disappearing Doctor" (Whitman) by Brandon Keith.

The Kato action figure has been modified with an 8" figure's body, to put him in better scale with my FTC Robin.

Nice stuff. Of your posted items, I also have the RAH GH and Kato 9 inch figures, the novel, View Master and Whitman book. Still waffling on buying an original Captain Action GH uniform set. Pricey to say the least.

Here are a couple of my customs. One is the exquisite Enterbay Kato with a resin head replacement, and the other features a spot on sculpt by my Dreamworks animator buddy, Todd Grimes. Both heads were painted by me....

New pic of my Japanese "Mediacom Toy Corporation" figures of Green Hornet and Kato. I did a little tweaking on Kato, swapping his body for a 8" Mega-type body and adjusting his sleeves, jacket buttons and pant cuffs!

Interesting collection, Therin. I have the Meidcom GH&K, but I've always thought they were more realistically sculpted than Megos.

Thanks! It annoyed me that Kato was so tall! (I soon fixed that!) :)

Here are some items in my Green Hornet Collection. Although nothing from the show, these were all owned and worn by Van Williams. Van Williams loved life and was very active as an outdoorsman, sports fan, and a esteemed member of the law enforcement community. The persoally worn jackets represent each phase of his life's passions. They are scheduled to be displayed in an upcoming exhibit that will honor his life and career. More to come. Enjoy!
