Toy fun with "The Toy"

Since I was doing screencaps for the Children's Palace post, I thought I'd do a couple from The Toy, the 1982 comedy starring Richard Pryor & Gleason. At the beginning of the movie, Pryor works as a janitor in Gleason's department store (filmed at Goudchaux's Department Store in Baton Rouge, La.).

During the "Wonder Wheel" scene, Pryor is standing in front of a mouth-watering display of minty-fresh Mego superheroes figures (and I think some AHI parachute Spidey and Batman toys too).
