Iron Man 3 Fruit Snacks

Since the release of the first Iron Man movie I've been praying to the Super Hero Food Gods to deliver me a fresh box of Iron Man Cereal but three solo movies (and one team-up movie) later and I still do without.  The gods seem to be both fickle and cruel as they taunt me box after box of consolatory fruit snacks.  

So it's with dashed hopes and low blood sugar that I dive into the box of new Iron Man 3 Fruit Snacks:

This isn't Shell-Head's first foray into the fruit snack world (as seen HERE and HERE) but this is his first solo mission.  Let's see how it breaks down:

Looks like we've got the words "Iron Man", Iron Man flying, Iron Man's hand/repulsor, the Iron Man mask, the Avengers logo and the arc reactor.  Looks like, once again, the villain is snubbed.  No Pepper either. 

The Avengers logo (and probably the Iron Man mask) seem to be reused from the Avengers Fruit Snacks.  That's to be expected though.  At least Thor didn't horn in on this like he did with the Captain America Fruit Snacks.

Designer Water

Artist Kerry Gammill is widely known for his comic book work but he has also had a successful career in design and concept art.  Some of my favorite examples of his work though fall within the "Super Hero Food" genre.  Here's a design he did for a squirting Captain America topped water bottle:

And here's a look at how it eventually turned out:

 Here's the work he did on a Spider-Man squirting bottle of water:

And the end product:

Sorry for the bad picture, it's an older one.  Here's a design for a Hulk squirter:

I'm not sure if these ever got made but if they did, I never found them.  Check out more of Gammill's work on his website.

Batman Shills for Argentinian Yogurt

Here's another eBay find.  It's a magazine advertisement that has Batman, Robin and Commissioner Gordon selling Argentinian yogurt:

Can anyone translate for me?
