Vintage Green Hornet Soaky Bubble Bath?

Post by rsaffle »

I have a Batman and Superman Soaky Bubble bath bottles from the 60's and wondered why they never made a Green Hornet so I found an old Dick Tracy one that I modified with modeling compound and paint. I even made a vintage looking box for it.

Awesome! I wondered why you didn't paint the back of the hat or the back of his hair, but never seeing a Dick Tracy soaky, looking one up, you stayed true to the original!

Yeah they made them pretty cheap and some had color wrapping and some just stop at halfway. I pushed it having two colors. Lol

Thanks guys! Appreciate the comments. Now I have to figure out a Kato.

I was going ask if Kato was next! Looking at soakys perhaps James Bond (rare and $$) or as a Kato caricature, perhaps Secret Squirrel...with some mods to the hat , making a mask, modifying the facial features....perhaps Kato?

The gun is a nice touch. I'm surprised they never did a Hornet, but then they never did Dracula for their monsters line so there's that. Super7 is bringing back soakies, they started with ALIEN and they have Universal Monsters up next, although they've been working on them for about four years.
