Indexer Notes

Namor the Sub-Mariner figure from a "next issue" house ad/pin-up from: The Avengers (Marvel, 1963 series) #2

Doctor Strange headshot from: Strange Tales (Marvel, 1951 series) #115, "The Origin of Dr. Strange" (page 1 splash)

Iron Man figure (drawn by Jack Kirby) was used for the Iron-On Transfer and might have been a promo piece (perhaps rather aptly might have first appeared on the Marvel T-Shirts in the 1960's?)? It was later used as a pin-up in one of the 1970's reprint books.
