Star Trek - The Human Factor

Power Pal Rockwell J. Pugglesworth sent me a link to a site called Star Trek Story Records, which features a complete(?) listing of every Trek record Peter Pan issued! I took a quick look and found a number of Trek records we haven't yet covered, so let's catch up.

This audio adventure is called "The Human Factor", which was one of the newer stories created specifically as a tie-in to the 1979 movie. It was issued on a couple different multi-story LPs as well as this single with the dull as dishwater sleeve, seen above. Somehow I had overlooked posting it before so it is making its debut on the site today!

As an audio drama, "The Human Factor" is on par with the others from this later series of recordings. Though I did particularly enjoy the oblique references to the other stories in the opening moments of this one (continuity!).

By the way, if for some reason you need to own ten copies of this record, there's a guy on eBay who can hook you up.

Thanks again Rockwell!

Six Million Dollar Man - 2 Exciting Stories


These Six Million Dollar Man LPs just keep coming!

This is yet another Steve Austin-starring Power Record, featuring two stories in both audio and comic book form. Unfortunately I couldn't find scans of the comic portion of the record online, and I haven't had time to scan, cut, and paste all the pieces necessary to put it all together (my apologies).

There seems to be no end to these Six Million Dollar Man releases!

The Incredible Hulk - At Bay

Another of the later period Power reissues, the subtitle "At Bay" was dropped entirely with some new(?) art created for the sleeve. Does anyone actually have one of these?

Power Records Super Hero Gift Pack

On my post about Power Records' Sci-Fi Gift Pack, I wondered if they had ever put out a superhero one. Just a few hours later, Power Pal Rockwell J. Pugglesworth sent me these images of that every thing!

Featuring 10(!) amazing audio adventures, some of the company's best, this set makes the perfect sampler for someone who wants to know what these Power Records were all about. Plus you get to see Superman, Batman, and Spider-Man all on the same sleeve, and that's not something you'll ever get these days.

Now that this mystery is solved, let's move on to the next one: were there more of these?

Thanks again Rockwell!

Batman - Robin Meets Man-Bat!

Another alternate packaging of the Batman: Robin Meets Man-Bat book and record set, using the same cover art but with new verbiage up top. Some day I'm going to pick one of these up on eBay, just so I can see for myself if the back or inside covers are also different than the original book and record versions.

Power Records Sci-Fi Gift Pack

Power Pal Rockwell Jay Pugglesworth followed up to the post I wrote a few weeks ago regarding this unusual "Sci-Fi Gift Pack" with full scans of the front and back sleeves. Thanks Rockwell!

I have to think Peter Pan did other gift packs like this, especially for the superhero records. It's hard to do Google searches for these, because "Power Records" is such a generic term and it brings up a lot of useless stuff, but I'm hoping eventually...

In The Days of the Mob

Another wonderful Power Records custom courtesy Tyrone Biljan, but this one is completely out of the left field: an audio adaptation of Jack Kirby's In The Days of the Mob? What's next, a Soul Love Power Record?!? Of course, I'd buy both if they existed...

Be sure to check out Tyrone's blog That Would Be So Cool If...!
