Top Five Awesome Things on Ebay this Week

Hey it's Friday, that means another segment of my online window shopping and drooling. Man this is cathartic and a lot cheaper than buying this stuff.



Italian Spider-Man! These Superhero cars were produced in Italy and were meant to be used with the Mego 12" Superheroes. I'm a big Mego fan but i've never pulled the trigger on these, there is also a Superman and Batman versions. 




Ben Cooper Sleestak costume- Aggggghhh, this one is killing me but I've already spent my budget for the fall. I usually treat myself to one new Halloween costume every fall but I've been treating myself to lots of things lately.



Superman Carnival Mirror- Around here, the midways only had stuff like "Cheap Trick" and "Motley Crue", I'd have gone crazy for a Superman mirror like this!


FunStuf Power Superhero Power Shield- Power Shields were a really weird concept toy by FunStuf (who made a lot of cool Superhero Merch). I mean shields for any other character than Captain America make as much sense as a Utility belt for the Hulk. There used to be a commercial for this on Youtube but it seems to have disappeared.  






Dr Zaius Belt Buckle- I love Planet of the Apes merchandise and a lot of my disposable income seems to go right towards it. I draw the line at this because it would be too tempting to wear it over my dirty bathrobe while I wander the neighbourhood, thus ruining my daughter's social standing forever. You're welcome, sweetie.



Coolest Rack Toy Ever?


I don't know about you all but I really want to see James Bond and Napoleon Solo team up with the Space Giants and how this all related to a flute/flashlight.

Star Wars Action Favorites!


Even though I wasn't really into Return of the Jedi as a kid, I did love that Kenner was still putting out the original 12 figures during that period. It was like running into old friends...

Spectreman Bowling Pump


Ah the beauty of Rack Toys, even in Japan they take an incredible creative license all the while throwing logic out the window. We are all better for stuff like this.

The Last Star Fighter Prototypes Found



This past week I got one of those emails that I just absolutely live for and that is from the owner of the hand painted set of prototype figures for the Last Star Fighter. Pictured about is the original catalog page we showed here. 

Originally proposed by Galoob, these figures never saw light of day, probably due to the film's lackluster box office (it's a good movie too, I saw it opening weekend). It haunts collectors such as myself a little and that's why this image and the following story made me smile.

Top Five Awesome things on Ebay this week.


Asteroids Halloween Costume- I can picture the designer at Collegeville just throwing up his hands and thinking "It's 4:45, they're getting this and I'm going home". That's why the mask for this looks like an infection I got on my back that time I used the pool in my old apartment building. Here is the Collegeville Costume Catalog with all the other Atari characters in it by the way, they're equally inspiring.

All Made to Mix



That right there, is the look of a Stallion, my friends. He will manifest anything he wants today. He pees out more confidence before 9am than I make all year long!

Golden Bathroom Dreams


When I was 17, I had a job which involved tearing out the carpets in a couple of bathrooms that looked just like this. Now, if you'll excuse me I must go wash my hands for the rest of the month.

Mister Rogers toys by Ideal



I wasn't much of a Mr Rogers viewer (more of a Mr. Dressup man) but these toys are all kinds of awesome. I really love the attention to detail on them.

5 Awesome things on Ebay this week

The best part of the interwebs for me is window shopping (and watching those thermal camera fart videos- never not funny!), so justify my time wasting with this week's top five! 



Knock off Planet of the Apes mask from Japan- I know nothing of rubber masks except that i really like them and would love to have the funds/space to collect them. Stuff like this makes it crazy hard to resist it.

Spider-Man's Web of Terror


For Superhero who can't drive and is sorta poor, Spider-Man has some killer cars.

Jaws Game!


Currently trying to put one of these together to play this with my kids. I'll say it again, OK game but amazing nemesis for your Mego Superheroes.

Five Awesome Things on Ebay this week

Folks I can't tell you how much I love being enabled, that's why this has become a weekly feature on this blog. I've been doing this for twelve years wish I'd have figured this out sooner. 

Here are the five things that caught my fancy this week, 





The SweatHogs Executive Desk Set- Why, I'm certain Warren Buffet has one of these in front of him right now. I'm also outraged at the lack of a "Boom-Boom" wastebasket where you could shoot hoops, that wrote itself AHI!



Charlie's Angels Beauty Set-  Fleetwood made some fun rack toys for Charlie's Angels but none of them gravitated towards the show's action orientation, they were mainly jewelry and beauty sets like this one. Little girls like guns too Fleetwood!






Logan's Run Drinkware- Speaking of Farrah, some enterprising company licensed her as "Holly" in the film for a series of drinkware, short-sighted that the company didn't think anyone would want one of Jenny Agutter.  I want one of anything Jenny Agutter....





Prisoner Mini Moke- As a lover of Patrick McGoohan and his fabled TV series "The Prisoner" I've always coveted this, the only toy ever from the series. Trouble is, it's coveted by Dinky car collectors too and I've never been able to secure one. Someday...




V Bop Bag-  My ability to track down a VHS copy of the "V" miniseries in college won me the affections of a beautiful girl in college (although the meeting to pick up the tape with the other collector almost blew the deal) and for that, I'll be eternally grateful to V and it's merchandise. Thank you nerdiness!
