Sweet Revenge


That steely look in his eyes? He's just daydreaming about the poor quality nursing home he's going to put his parents in some magical day...

5 awesome things on ebay this week


FunStuf Septor the stretchable space warrior- I seriously had never heard of this Stretch Armstrong knock off until i was in my 30s, he even has a (disappointing) villain by name of Garth.


Ultra-Seven Baseball Glove- Combining two Japanese passions, Ultraman and Baseball. This would have kept my interest during my punishingly long experiences in "extreme outfield" as a kid.



Skateboarding Horshack- I've never seen this before, boy, toymakers really thought the Sweathogs were the next Beatles.


Canadian Star Wars Coke Poster- Not a big Star Wars guy but seeing this instantly brings back some happy memories. This was a fun summer.


Electric Company Naomis Magical Match Up Game- I loved the Electric Company as a kid, it felt like a more "adult" version of sesame street. I never knew there were toys!




Black Hole Masks!


These wonderful masks from Italy are from my friend John's collection, they're exactly like the Ben Cooper/Collegeville designs but there was never a smock to go with it.


Honestly, I am just awash in envy about that Humanoid mask, I have a weird affliction for the brain dead zombies of Dr. Reinhart and always will. I really want to thank John for sharing these amazing artifacts.

Toy-Ventures 13- Battle of the Planets action figures from France




Toy-Ventures 13 talks about the awesome series of action figures based on the popular television series "Battle of the Planets". These are the action figures we craved and totally deserved as kids but sadly never got.

I go into my reasons as to why I love Battle of the Planets and showcase my small but well loved collection.

Say "Transmute" and join me, won't you?

5 awesome things on Ebay


Battle Star Galactica Wall Paper- One of the collections I wish I could start but probably never will is children's licensed wall paper. A lot of it is gorgeous and I'd like to cover a room with it. This can be yours for $20.


Monster Killer Laser Car- Remember that cool device that shot energy bolts at Godzilla and the Gargantuas? They made a toy of it, also I now know what it's called. What a big day for me.


The Black Hole Slide Projector Set- Every once in a while I find things that i don't know i've seen before, this item from the UK is definitely one of them.


Mike Power Secret Mission-  Hasbro repackaged some old GI Joe sets for use with their new Atomic Superhero. I have no memory of these, which is weird because I was really into this stuff at that point. Anyway, they're really hard to get and cost a lot.



V British Annual - For those not in the know, an annual is a UK phenomenon, a hardbound book filled comics, stories and games that you traditionally got for Christmas. I had tons of them as a kid (mostly Doctor who and the Beano) but they made tons of these and I'm a total junkie. I need this one but I'm tapped out right now.


Go Ape at Toys R Us!


Not much to add to this except, all of it please, all of it.

Family Drawers


I don't think an army of therapists could wash away the scars of posing with my parents in matching underwear...nopenopenope.

Archie at Riverdale High


Archie comics and cartoons ruled when I was a kid and I would have loved to have these groovy figures by Marx toys. However, I just don't remember them so Jughead never got to team up with Batman and Big Jim.

Oh, the adventures they would have had!

5 Awesome Things on Ebay


David Carradine Kung Fu Iron On Transfer- I have a mild obsession with the TV series "Kung Fu" and this is from Neal Adams, so this should be mine but I can't swing it right now. IT TASKS ME!

Santo Photocomic- I'm not much for Wrestling but I loves me some Santo, this photo comic where he battles Women Deviless is right up my alley. I hope the next cinematic universe is Santo.



Spanish Poster for "Baffled"- There is a poster for the TV pilot that Leonard Nimoy made in 1973? I want it!


A carded Space:1999 Zython- Crap in a hat, does the internet not know my children want to go to college? Agggghhhh!


Sword and the sorcerer Rack toy by Fleetwood- Few R Rated movies got toys and even less Albert Pyun movies did. This is special and should be celebrated.






And now, a whole page of diecast Shogun Warriors


This page is from the 1980 Popy toys catalog and even though i wasn't born in Japan, it feels like childhood.

LJN Road Stars


Which one would you go for as a kid? I'd be torn between Captain America and the Eagle from Space:1999.

Also, I wanna meet the kid who saw this display and went "Oh Wow, the Waltons truck!"
