It's Charlie Chaplin !

Chaplin, talcum powder container, ?
Really it's the first actor to get action figures and other things made after him... Classic!

Parker, get the Rolls Royce. We're going for a little drive.

FAB 1 model kit, Lincoln International, Hong Kong, 1965
And another pink six-wheeled Rolls for the collection. This one had quite a nice story, really. I found the box (empty) about 7 years ago at a car-show here in Lisbon.

A number of years later the car passed by and got reunited... The kit has an electric motor that is activated through the black switch you see on the left side of the car.

Left, the IMAI kit - right, the Lincoln one...

The POP phenomenon gets to Gotham...

Stores have opened here in Portugal with these things... At Comic Con, it was the latest rage... It's POP! My only regret : they could have made these with rolling wheels so you could actually play with the car...
