    Superman Krypto-Raygun in Original Packaging (Daisy Manufacturing, 1940). This is an amazing example of the extremely rare 1940 Superman Krypto-Raygun, manufactured by Daisy Manufacturing Co.
    Superman made his debut in June of 1938 in Action Comics #1, which makes this one of the first commercially produced Superman toys ever. The production run was cut short and was extremely limited, due to the United States entrance into World War II just a year later. For that reason these rayguns are among the rarest and hardest to find of all vintage Superman collectibles.
    The raygun is approximately 7" long, made of pressed steel, with a battery operated light that projects film images onto any surface, when the trigger is pulled. This unbelievable example comes in its original box, with all of the original film strips, light bulb, and instruction sheet. The box itself is in simply impeccable condition, with sharp corners and brilliant cover inks, and only the slightest of edge wear. This may very well be the finest example of this very special Superman toy in existence! Don't take your bidding lightly if you would like to own this piece of Superman history. Hake's Price Guide to Character Toys Near Mint value = $3,000.
