Sonic Fazer




I have vivid memories of that store display with that Han solo wearing Luke's clothes and Dracula's cape.

Five Awesome Things on Ebay this week


AHI Official Super Friends Car- Not to be confused with all those unofficial Super Friends cars, everything about this thing is beautiful except that they didn't invite Wonder Woman?  I especially love that Aquaman's driving.



British Star Trek Annual- For those not in the know, Annuals are these hardback books filled with stories, comics and (terrible) games. They're a UK tradition but if you grew up in a commonwealth, you probably had them. I LOVE THEM and the Star Trek ones are especially my favorites because they reprint the sometimes batshit Gold Key comics. I will likely buy this over the weekend.




Kenner Star Wars Store Display- One fine day, in 1979 my dad was visiting a friend who owned a toy store. He was closing and let us out the back, on the top of his garbage pile was this display, the man told me "Take it!" and as I reached for it, my incredibly germophobic dad shook his head no.

Now that you've heard this tale of woe, please group together the necessary funds to buy this for me please.





British Steve Austin Costume- I'm pretty sure this it exactly the same as the US version, just in a different box BUT IT'S A NEAT BOX!




Ultra-Man Halloween Costume- In October, all the cool costumes show up, like this classic Ultra-Man set by Collegeville. October is going to be expensive...


Scratch and Sniff Costumes


AKA the most 1980s thing ever! These are weird and probably wrong but I'm grateful they didn't release a "Clown" or "Hobo" version.

Hasbro Ghost Gun


I got to spend one afternoon with the Ghost gun's brother "the Moving Monster Gun" when I was ten and i remember how smitten i was with this toy.

Bonus shot: Here's the Ghost gun at retail way back in 1974.

Shark! by Ben Cooper


When Jaws hit pop culture like a runaway train, licensors lined up to cash in. The only problem? Any toy company can make a shark toy and boy howdy did they.

This particular one by Ben Cooper just goes above and beyond by including a victim, a scared victim!






Man, I know that face, I make it at least once a week.  I wish I owned this toy but it was kindly submitted by a collector to include in Rack Toys
