Five Awesome Things on Ebay this week


Dragomovil- In Mexico, Dr. Steel is Big Jim's enemy and he's called "Doctor Drago" and it's all more awesome there for some reason, it just is. I had one of these, sealed with the plastic and everything. I sold it when my first kid was born, I'm sure I had a good reason. I don't regret selling it but wow, it's still neat.



Fisher Price Adventure People- I guess because all of mine survived my childhood and two sets of grandkids (they're seriously that tough) I've never actually collected the line. I do admire it when I see it in the wild though. It just dawned on me that these were the first female action figures I ever played with, it was no big deal, zero stigma about playing with a "doll" from others, just another character. Thanks Fisher Price for broadening my horizons like that...



Mattel Space:1999 Flying Eagle- This combination of Mattel Vertibird with Space:1999 has been haunting me for months. it's really rare and all kinds of awesome but I'll never pull the trigger and i know it.



Spider-Man meets the Fly race car set- I know Spider-Man has nothing to do with car racing and I'm totally not sure if he should be worried about an enemy called "the Fly" but I want this.



Phantom of the Paradise Ring- I don't wear jewelry as a rule but dammit, I should. Seriously i am thinking about telling my mum i want this for Christmas.

I had those Fisher Price figures. Loved them! Especially the set that was a pontoon boat that attached to a little prop plane to make a seaplane. I saw some of them today at an estate sale. Too expensive though.

Doctor Drago looks like a Speed Racer villain.

I get The Phantom of the Paradise and a film called Fade to Black of the same period confused with each other, I know one has a murderer that kills in the style of classic Hollywood murders and I think they also have the same protagonist??? - Mark J

What's with the Ring over the rubber kitchen cleaning gloves.....and a toilet plunger? Just....what?

Not sure if our host knows about this but Phantom Of The Paradise also inspired the "Phanteana" character in the Japanese figure line "Resurrection Of Monstress".

It's a very fetish-y kind of series (no nudity) but still worth a mild caution...

Since this is Japan... there are variants.
