5 Awesome Things on Ebay this Week




Max Headroom Puppet- UK toymaker Bendy Toys is a point of fascination for me because a) They made weird, UK Only toys and b) most of their stuff is deteriorating pretty badly now. I never knew they made a Max Headroom puppet before today and I kind of want it.



GERRY ANDERSON STARCRUISER INTERCEPTOR AIRFIX MODEL KIT I knew of the Gerry Anderson Starcruiser 1 model but I never knew there was a follow up from 1980. These kits all looked like they were from an episode of Space:1999 I haven't seen but of course, that's not possible. Although there are one or two I wish I hadn't seen.




Fisher Price TV Action News Team- I had sort of mixed feelings as a kid about this set (I used it to play "Mary Tyler Moore" because the one guy is clearly Lou Grant and my imagination did the heavy lifting) but so many people have come to it's defense over the years I thought I'd point out this complete set.



Pet Ghost Store Display by FunStuf- I've never heard of Pet Ghost before but it's obviously FunStuf's attempt to cash in on the "Pet Rock" thing and I love that. 


Planet of the Apes Banner from the TV Series- Original Apes props are so tantalizing and this one is pretty cool (if not pricey but what the heck this is fantasy window shopping) as it was used the TV series that i totally adore. Someday.....

Fisher-Price set is missing two parts. It is missing the top of the camera tower (looks like the bottom piece but with a square hole in the middle) and the reporter's Microphone pack! Still an awesome looking set though!

The eBay page says that the Apes banners were obtained in an auction in 1971....but of course, the TV show was filmed in 1974. Something's not quite right.....

I still have the camera from the Fisher Price set. And I have a Starcruiser Interceptor kit.

But to top it off I have a Max Headroom puppet in good condition, with sunglasses. To this day I still wonder why my mom gave it me.

I have seen the apes banner before. On eBay. And many years ago. Looks like the same pics too.

I was thinking Lou Grant as well. Could be Perry White I guess.

Didn't that Fisher Price set also come with a guy and a blue dirt bike? I always thought that's what they were supposed to be broadcasting?
