Zorcom Spaceship

I just found this ad in an Amazing Spider-Man from 1984. I never had this spaceship, but I saw the ad in the 80s many times and wondered just how awesome it would be. Having read Mail Order Mysteries, I wonder today just how awesome it really was. Still, I’d like to give it a try.

  1. I remember seeing that ad as a kid & thinking it’d be cool. Of course, it’s far more likely to be extremely crappy, nearly everything from such ads was.

    I had it, and really liked it. It was essentially just a big, decorated cardboard box, but it was fun and cool to have such a big toy. I’d put it vertical when I was done playing and store my transformers and Star Wars in there
