Title: Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea Toys
Post by: horrorhunter on December 27, 2014, 04:42:34 PM
There was a VTTBOTS Appreciation thread, or so I thought. It didn't show on a search so I'll start another one here. Maybe the old thread got axed in the shakeup. Anyway, even though this first post is for a new custom set based on the old show, most VTTBOTS posts will be for vintage toys. And, yes, VTTBOTS was most definitely a monster show (at least after the 1st season) with monster toys.

This is a custom playset I won in an eBay auction. It's the Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea Super Fiftieth Anniversary Set (Clyde Childress, 2014). I made a playset box for it from a new comic book long box. Sheets of bubble wrap protect the contents when stored.

Sadly it did.

I agree!

Thanks, Mike. Yeah, I thought that's probably what happened. Be nice to fire up another VTTBOTS thread. Lotsa great Voyage toys floating around out there.

Great kit, Hep.  8)

I'll be posting my VTTBOTS Remco playset soon. My pics were lousy when I posted it before anyhow.

Maybe bigbud will favor us with some of his VTTBOTS coolness. I think he has a Remco gun or two from the show, and knowing Bud he can probably scratch up some more stuff.  :)

Yes. I have a vague recollection that Bigbud had posted a cool Seaview playset from his collection.

Very nice, f73. Dupes on the aquanaut figures and a good condition vacu-form octopus. Those things crack if you stare at 'em too hard.

Thanks, Mord.

Kinda feel like I got too much of a bargain. I know how much time and effort (and expense) must have gone into that set. I'm putting his contact info out so that maybe I can send him some business. Make it worth it for him in the long run. In addition to sci-fi and historical vehicles the guy also does toy guns and gun-belts, both fantasy and historical. He's very talented.

This is my Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea Playset (Remco, 1965, Sears). This is the first year they were sold. In later years a sperm whale and Hamilton Spider or Beetle (either in solid yellow) were added, and the vacu-form octopus and smaller vehicles were omitted. Notice the small bug from Hamilton's Invaders. I don't have the original Sears shipping box unfortunately, so I drew a playset box for it. The Seaview in the box illustration is stylized to resemble a Big Daddy Roth hotrod (without the monster driver and huge stick shift  :laugh:).

(http://i1291.photobucket.com/albums/b552/horrorhunter/RemcoVTTBOTSplayset2_zpsf62f76ee.jpg)

CONTENTS:

Seaview with 2 Torpedos

Sea Crawler

Minisled

Vacu-Form Octopus

Sea Monster (Hamilton's Invaders Small Bug)

2 Divers (Plastic Arrows Protrude Under The Diver's Bases to Affix Them To Display Boxes)

Treasure Chest

Instruction Sheet

Original Instruction Sheet (very rough condition):
(http://i1291.photobucket.com/albums/b552/horrorhunter/RemcoVTTBOTSplaysetInstructionSheet_zpsa8eef901.jpg)

VTTBOTS playset ads appeared in Sears Wishbooks through 1968. The set from the '68 ad only contained the Seaview, sperm whale, yellow Hamilton Spider or Beetle, and 2 divers. Most of the divers seen now from this set have the base arrows clipped off so they will stand on a flat surface. I placed mine in upturned plastic lids so they would stand. The vacu-form octopus is very thin and easily cracked. The vehicles in my set still work. My Seaview still fires the torpedos and the propeller still cranks with the rubber band, but mine isn't getting anywhere near water and mess up the nice stickers. Everything fits in the box I made but I usually display my Seaview on one of my monster shelves. Love that piece.

That's a great set, Wnew. I believe that's the 1968 set with the solid yellow Hamilton's Invaders Spider and the sperm whale. That decorated box is killer.

But, where is that little Flying Sub from? Is that part of a model?

That's a beautiful box. Those decorated box MIB VTTBOTS sets are often priced at extremely high levels on eBay. For that matter all Remco VTTBOTS and Hamilton's Invaders toys seem to be priced VERY high, even some of the damaged pieces. I can see the nice condition ones being worth a lot (as in hundreds but NOT thousands of $), but not some of the damaged pieces that some sellers ask ridiculous prices for. I'm just glad I scored some decent Remco HI and VTTBOTS sets and pieces when I did. I wouldn't want to shell out for those now.

That is very true , I recall before things went crazy when the speculators entered the toy market raising the prices for all collectors.

I could go to any toy dealer and get a hamiltons Invaders boxed set in the $25 range for almost any one The big cave set with everything was $50-$75 , Voyage items were on the average higher $30-50 for the sea scout set and $75 for the seaview , lost in space were a bit pricy with the robot selling for $100-boxed and the roto jet gun was the rarest selling for a wopping $300-$400 .

Captain Action costume sets sold on avg for $25 ea boxed and GI Joe SOTW were $50-$75 boxed


Boy oh Boy have prices changed and well above the inflation rate ;)

Was the Explorer set by itself another Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea item or just another unrelated Remco item?

It sold by itself but I made a mistake calling it the explorer set it was called the Scout Set (as a kid we always called it the explorer set) I've corrected the error to avoid confusion

That was back in the mid / late 70s , prices had already started to pick up by the 90s , I recall buying tons of the orig Joe SOTW dolls back then,
 all were selling on close out in McCroys at $2 for small box and $3 for the large boxed ones

I was going to post mine but you beat me to it.  ;D

Mine is nice and complete, but the 16 sub counters have been punched out. That game board is very iconic. Those Milton Bradley TV board games from the '60s are simplistic, but the great artwork makes them very desirable. Some of those images are burned into the collective Monsterkid brain.

The Top one is the first issue Seaview "long box" and like the scarce thin long box Aurora Frankenstein it was only issued for a short time and is quite scarce

The middle Seaview was the 2nd release of the first issue w/ smaller thicker box that is the standard Aurora Issue size

bottom Seaview was the Aurora reissue and last Seaview made by Aurora

Remco Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea playset sells for $1,324.00 at eBay auction. This is the set from 1968 with the sperm whale and unpainted Hamilton Spider. Really nice set but the spider does have a missing antennae. The condition of the box is probably the main thing that drove the price up.

It's gone up a little since 1968.  ;D

Hermès Press did a nice hardcover set reprinting all the old comics. The volumes contain commentary and pictures from the show. I never owned the toys as a kid, but I loved the show. It’s one that I’ll watch over and over ( like Sea Hunt)!
