Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Bat Chute!

What you see before is the first, to my knowledge, officially licensed Superhero parachute figure. This bold pioneer paved the way for the madness that was the 1970s parachuting figure craze.

What I find insane is they created store displays to sell these, complete with a fan! I don't own this but I admire the heck out of it.

Five Awesome Things on eBay this week

The Incredible Hulk Kit- I used to own one of these, they're Canadian made and the rumour was Universal or Marvel shut down production of these. It's an interesting piece as very little merchandise was actually based on the series.

70s PopCorn Art Dracula- I actually have a cardboard version of this guy and display him every Halloween, this is tempting.

Spider-Woman Mall Appearance Photo- I collect these and also, have had a crush on Spider-Woman since I was eight. If I had the dosh right now I'd buy this but i'm a little broke so I thought I would share instead.

Space:1999 Utility Belt: Remco Utility belts are the collection I never really had, I only own two currently and that number is pretty stagnant, I can't believe this has no bidders as it's a total classic.

Action Bill and Jerry Outfit- I love GI Joe Knock-Offs, especially European ones because weirdness occurs. Action Bill and Jerry's illustration looks like a yellow pages ad for a barbershop and that's incredible.

SHAMELESS PLUG DEPARTMENT: I'm selling some stuff and will continue to do so please click the photo below and tell your friends. Thank you.

Pod Stallions 74: Question Time

Our newest PodStallions doesn't really have a topic but is a concept that Jason had, where we just ask each other personal questions relating to why we are the way we are. Topics include collecting during high school, giving it all up and first pop culture crushes.

Please  give us spirited debate in our new Facebook group.

Rack Toys were and are an international affair as evidenced by this awesome ad from Italy.

Five Awesome Things on eBay this Week

Return of Swamp Thing Print signed by Jim Wynorski- I have a real soft spot for this movie and for director Jim Wynorski. So when I found out Jim was selling these autographed prints, I wanted to promote them. These limited edition items are also signed by composer Chuck Cirino. I insist you buy this.

Inflatable Jaws toy by Imperial- I seriously love Jaws and i hope all the stories about remaking it aren't true. I don't know why I don't have more JAWS merch but for some reason, I've never gone there. This wonderful piece has the Jaws logo on its fins as it totally should?

STAR TEAM Set- This week's Toy Ventures episode was about the Knight of Darkness, so I thought this collection was interesting. All you need is a Zeorid and Star Hawk and you can make George Lucas "pee his pants" furious by acting out their adventures.

REMCO SUPERMAN UTILITY BELT- Next to the Hulk, Superman is the one character who probably doesn't need a belt full of gadgets.I mean, look at this stuff, can you imagine Superman using handcuffs and a communicator?

Yet, I want to own this someday, damn you REMCO!

Display box of Laurel and Hardy Erasers- Rejoice Gen-Xers, we are the last generation to be marketed Laurel and Hardy merchandise and we are better for it. I have no recollection of these but yet they feel vaguely familiar and oh sooooo friendly.......

Star Wars at Simpson's

We had to drive a bit to get to a Simpson's store growing up but their catalogs and robust toy sections will forever be etched into some happy childhood memories. I fondly remember browsing that section in the early 1980s, they also had some really cool stuff on clearance when I was in college, I miss them.

Thee three packs seem to be a big deal in the collector market these days.

My new Workout routine!

Time to get in shape people, my morning routine involves rowing and then a grueling four hours on the slender bender:

Followed by a brisk 45 minutes on the Twist-a-Ciser!

Then i wind down with a relaxing session with my belt massager (No fooling, I own one of these and they're awesome)

I'm gonna look great at the beach this summer....

5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

City Beneath the Sea Viewmasters- I just discovered these were a thing, how the heck a busted TV pilot gets merchandise and Logan's Run didn't will haunt me. Anyway, I love this movie and will probably buy these...

Marx Green Machine- An original 70s issue! Man, I wanted one of these but got denied and the only kid who had one in my neighborhood, I wasn't allowed to play with! Double denied. I won't buy this because i can't ride it.

Captain America Sharp Shooter Set- The number of Lugers sold in Cap's name is rather robust. I do love the appearance of Kang on the card back, the hottest selling secret wars figure.

Frankenstein Conquers the World Vinyl Figure- Agggh, I feel like I've been missing meetings, I saw this movie when I was 9 and well, i'm not over it. I own zero merchandise despite me loving all things Toho and Frankenstein...


Brochure for the TV Series "The Starlost"- The StarLost is a  Canadian Television series created by Harlan Ellison (he completely disowned it because he's Harlan Ellison), it's boring, it's cheap and thanks to Canadian content laws, I've seen every episode and am fascinated with it. I just discovered today it was released on VHS with misleading packages, I may need to buy this....

PS, I'm selling some stuff on eBay as well and will continue to do so all weekend until i get my toy debt under control, please have a look at my items and please, check back often.
