A daily look back at the toys, games, and objects that captured our attention as children and continue to fascinate us today.

Supervator Super Action Flyby from MEGO (1974)

In 1974, MEGO released a series of playsets for their 8-inch action figures. The Supervator Super Action Flyby was one of the more peculiar offerings for everyone’s favorite wall-crawler. Kids attached the flyby to a door or other flat surface and belted their Spider-Man figure into the seat that was suspended from clear fishing line that was attached to a plastic handle. Raising and lowering the handle caused Spider-Man to slide back and forth across the line. A number of accessories were included with the Super Action Flyby, including a Super Back Pack, Nasty Secret Plans, and Super Foe Cards.
