Five Awesome things on Ebay this week

The response to last week's roundup of virtual window shopping was so positive, I decided to make it a regular thing. 

Who knows? Maybe it'll lead to me being more responsible with my money. Here are the five things I'd buy if I was the son of an oil tycoon: 



An Electra Woman Costume!- I love Electra Woman and Dyna Girl a whole bunch and I'm sorely tempted to buy this well-made outfit, just to display it on a mannequin but knowing me I'd end up with a basement wax museum by the end of the year full of Sleestaks and Cybermen (Oh that actually just made me want to do this more). For those that ask, OF COURSE THE SELLER HAS A DYNA GIRL TOO.


Pod Stallions 65: Jack Kirby




On the eve of what would have been his 101st birthday, Jason and Brian celebrate the legendary career of comics legend, Jack "King" Kirby.

Kirby left a gigantic mark on pop culture and we're both better human beings for exposure to his incredible storytelling.

We discuss our gateway entry into Kirby, what made us fans, his unique and beautiful comic style, his influences on the genre and some of his weirder creations.

Along the way we talk discuss Dragnet, Flash Gordon, LSD trips in movie theatres, treasury editions, learning to read, Jimmy Olsen buying prophylactics,  Star Trek: The Motion Picture, action figures, Planet of the Apes, Destroyer Duck,  Thundarr, Goldie Gold and Action Jack, Kenner Super Powers and terrible 70s comic book jive talk.



Please join us on the Pod Stallions Facebook page and let us know what you think!
  give us spirited debate on our facebook wall.

Frolic in the Park



Oh sure, these guys can stroll around with impunity but I drop my kids off in a dirty bathrobe that one time and I'm not allowed at bake sales anymore.

5 neatest things on Ebay this week

I tend to procrastinate by looking at toys on Ebay, I'm trying to change a bad habit into a good one by turning it into blog content and sharing with everyone. Humour me.

Here are the things that I really want to buy but probably won't pull the trigger.


Planet of the Apes Cornelius Stunt Cycle by Azrak Hamway- As readers of this blog know, I love Rack Toys, especially really ridiculous ones like this. I'll also confess the reason I don't bid on this? I bought the Dr. Zaius one last night.

Colorforms:1981


I'm gonna be honest, as much as I loved Buck Rogers, I probably would have went with the Popeye set when I was ten. I still love that movie and well, I have a thing for Shelly Duval...

Little People Love


I really should keep some Fisher Price little people on my desk (or at the very least some Pin Mates) I think starting the day with them would greatly improve my overall experience.
