5 awesome things on ebay this week


Custom Mego Sleestak doll- Full disclosure, I know the talented person who made this, that doesn't take away from how cool it is. I never understood why we didn't get more Sleestaks as kids, I didn't need a doll of the Marshall family but Mein Gott, I wanted one of these...




Kaptain Kool and Kongs Guitar- Speaking of all thing Krofft, this guitar features the hosts of the Krofft Super Show and is something I've never seen before. Fun Fact: Kaptain Kool would later play Rachel's dad on "Friends", that was way more interesting in the 1990s...




Buck Rogers Inflatable Walking Twiki- I am wondering if I can somehow attach this to my roomba thus have Twiki clean my house. I gotta go think....




BJ and the Bear Gift Set- I want to own this so I can prove to myself that this TV show really happened because it so feels like a fever dream to me.



Space:1999 Zython-  What is it? It's an alien for the Space:1999 series that didn't appear on the show. It only got produced in tiny numbers in Germany. This one hurts, I want it but i'm just not flush with the cash.

Awesome collection!
One tiny piece of nerdish rectification: Kaptain Kool directed many episodes of Friends.
Rachel's dad was Ron Liebman.

BJ and the Bear ran for over 2 years, so certainly no fever dream. You can get a bootleg DVD release but it seems the quality is a little iffy.

I was a Kaptain Kool & the Kongs snob when I was a kid. The second season,they fired fith member Flatbush and I boycotted the show.

In all seriousness- I think that Kaptain Kool and the Kongs [the band], probably would have been more popular, if their name was Captain Cool and the Congs...so you'd avoid a set of three Ks.
I guess the directors didn't think about those initials, when they created this band. Hm.

BJ and the Bear was real. I thought the same as you for many years, wondering if it was real. Then came the internet and BAM! I could prove I wasn't a crazy little kid making up TV shows in my head.
