Five Awesome Things on eBay this week

Venus Space Probe from the Six Million Dollar Man- I search for this giant toy every week on eBay, not because I'll ever own it but because I'm haunted by the "Death Probe" episodes. This auction is a prime example, it's super pricey and I'll do nothing but watch it pass by but my inner 7 year old is kicking me. 



Lone Ranger and Tonto Water pistols- These are by Durham, who made some pretty quirky looking toys and I have a great deal of love for these. They were doing super deformed "Pop vinyl" type items before that was a thing.



Casual outfits for the Rookies dolls- This is just right up my alley, these are liesure suits and outfits for the 8" Mego-like action figures from the TV series "The Rookies". They're catalog exclusives and it's just my special brand of weirdness. I want to buy this and dress the Brick Mantooth doll in every single outfit.


Blood on his Lips Super 8 movie- I love Super 8 movies, heck i bought one this week and i'm pretty sure this is a retitled copy of "the Hideous Sun Demon" and I have a thing for Drive-In Schtick. If this is already gone it's because I bought it, yeah I'm like that.





Captain America Shooting Gallery- God I love this rack toy, it's the combination of a gun for Captain American (this is 70s Cap, not movie Cap) but the fact that it just had to be a Luger. I'm not even going to mention the whole thing going on with the card artwork.

Tired of the same tame slacks?

Bee-Gee's Fever- Catch it!


I never got the fever although i didn't mind the brothers Gibb. Years later my teenage son would start playing BeeGee's records loudly, I guess that's how you rebel against parents who still listen to GWAR.





We live in sad "Dog earless" times people.

5 Awesome Things on eBay this week



Superhero Cake Toppers from the mid 1970s- I've had a couple of sets of these guys and they still go for $5 each. I don't think they're licensed but there is something so lovable about them, especially since they look like they've had enough cake.



Presto Magix Empire Strikes Back Store Display- I won't lie, this sends me to fifth grade and I like it there. Presto Magix are my jam and these were fun. I want this.




Superhero Fridge Magnets- I have these all over my fridge, they're childhood, pure childhood to me. This lot is kind of expensive but they do pop up reasonable.




Dark Shadows Magic Slate- While this is rare as heck, this has been on eBay for a long time because I don't think the seller really wants to part with it. I'm a sucker for Barnabus Collins merchandise, I don't expect anyone I know to hit the buy it now but man it's kind  of cool.




Mr Spock Bop Bag- Don't hit Spock, he's scary strong and totally flips out if you mention his mom. I have one of these, if I could get it back in the box it could be your for half this price.


BONUS AUCTION:



Mego Sleestak Custom- As readers of this blog know, I loves me some Sleestaks and this figure by Rachel makes me smile. BUY IT!

5 Awesome things on eBay this week.


Japanese Spider-Man doll by Popy- I have a deep affinity for the Japanese Spider-Man TV series and it's merchandise also gets much sunshine from me. This toy is loaded with so many wonderful gimmicks (most of them having nothing to do with Spider-Man himself) that it's a total win. Missiles coming out of hands? Why not?

Laverne and Shirely Tiger Claw Necklace by Harmony- Harmony made the weirdest stuff, they had odd licenses and I can't get enough of them. Every piece is just yeah,,,,,








Cheinco Planet of the Apes waste basket- It's the official waste basket of PlaidStallions as it's the one in my office. I've owned a couple in my life and honestly it always been a struggle between Apes or this one.






Japanese Godzilla Bendy- I am such a big fan of dorky looking Godzilla toys.



Mexican lobby Card for Phantom of the Paradise- Why do people remind me cool things exist? This thing is currently sitting at six dollars! Arrgggghhhhh


New Avengers Jigsaw Puzzle- This is actually being sold by my Podcast partner and friend, Mr  Lenzi. I find it kind of absurd as New Avengers was an action show and the puzzle is of John Steed...... leaving his building or possibly a restaurant? This must have flown off the shelves!




BONUS ABSURDITY


21 Kwai Chang Caine figures and one master Po - These are from the Multiple toys "Kung Fu" playset that came out in 1974, I don't why this guy has so many Caines but I need that Master Po, so does anyone know 21 Kung Fu fans who want a $2 Caine?

5 Awesome things on eBay this week


Planet of the Apes Wagon toy by AHI- I cannot stress how much i love this AHI Apes toy, if i didn't have one I'd buy this. I'm not sure if it's the Astronaut figure in full space suit or Dr. Zaius driving but either way, I just want to hug this.



Japanese Die Cast Superman Figure- This is sort of like a Superman Micronaut, add to that Neal Adams art and I'm all weak in the knees.


Spider-Man magic transfer set by Colorforms- I had this as a kid, you made little standees and I still have the Green Goblin one. Memories....




Starlog salutes Star Trek T Shirt- It doesn't get more 1980s than this powder blue bad boy, you'll never know when it'll be Star Trek's 20th Anniversary again.


Battle of the Planets Schoolbag from Greece- I have been collecting Battle of the Planets stuff since the early 90s and this is something I've never seen before.
