5 Awesome Things on eBay this week



Space:1999 Road Stars Moon Buggy- It's September 13th, so it's Breakaway day! I love this little diecast vehicle mainly because the card art is an outtake?





All the Superman Presto Magix Sets- OK, I'm not going to lie here, a lot of the stuff I share, I'm probably not going to buy or am only sharing because I can't afford it. THIS ONE HURTS. I love Presto Magix and if i hadn't have already spent all my money on goofy stuff this month, this would be mine. So please, enjoy responsibly....




AHI Wolfman Flasher Face- I actually owned one of these and put it in Rack Toys. I sold it years later and wonder if this is it. It's a neat piece that i was wishy-washy about selling but whatever...



Mr Dress Up appearance Poster- OK, so Mr. Dressup was basically Canada's version of Mr. Rogers, in fact he was Fred Rogers Protege. He's basically adored by Canadians of a certain age and this is like, insanely tempting because there is ZERO merchandise. I'm certain that any American friend who lived in a border state is aware of him because this poster is from Detroit.



Corgi Crimefighters set- Sure the box has seen better days but a team-up of James Bond, Buck Rogers and the crew of the Enterprise, OH SIGN ME UP! NOW!

I used to love getting a Presto Magix kit! Good times. And that Corgi set is amazing!

Don't forget Starskey and Hutch-- that Bond/Rogers/Enterprise team would be nowhere without them

Mr. Dressup was awesome to this kid who spent 2-3 weeks each Summer on PEI. My little black & white cottage tv struggled, but I loved it. Great memories and definitely an impact on how I try an play/educate with my six-year old son.

I'm from Seattle. Mr. Dressup was broadcast in syndication through a local US tv station near the border. I watched and loved it. I know someone from upstate NY who saw it on local TV too.

I was going to ask when Starsky and Hutch were on the Enterprise, but I see that Hutch actually was in the episode The Apple.

Oh, that's some epic stuff there! =D And, is it just me, or do those Space: 1999 suits on that card art look a lot like the 2001: Space Odyssey ones?

I had the Buck Rogers fighter back in the day. That Corgi set would have made for an epic christmas or birthday back in the day.

Hailing from Detroit back in the early 1970's, I also was raised on Mr. Dressup, Friendly Giant, Bozo the Clown and the Electric Company. I have fond memories of watching these shows. It goes by fast, the days are long but the years are short.

Those don't look like Moon Boots on Barbara Bain.
