Five Awesome Things on eBay this week


1977 Space:1999 Calendar, not only is this totally bad ass but I can reuse it in 2022!



Matchbox Fighting Furies Ghost of Captain Kidd- Fighting Furies is this wonderfully underrated toy line from the mid 1970s that had Mason Reese as a spokesperson. It doesn't really get enough credit, especially considering the third character introduced into the series was a freaking ghost who glowed in the dark. It's one of the coolest action figures ever.



Black Hole Towel- I don't think I have to justify why this would be here. I wasn't even looking for Black Hole stuff and this came up, it was meant to be.



Italian Superman Watergun- I like mashups like this, it's a retooled phaser, normally sold for Batman that somebody slapped a Superman sticker on it. So while Batman using a pistol always seemed weird, it's even weirder to think of Superman having any use for one!


Japanese Suckerman- I didn't know this was a thing, it's totally awesome!

Superman: I've got a present for you. It's an ultrasonic signal watch if you need me. I want all my friends to have one.

Batman: No.

Superman: You never have to use it! I'll just feel better knowing you have it if you needed it.

Batman: No. I never wear watches, and Bruce Wayne would never wear such a cheap looking one.

Superman: Please?

Batman: No.

(later)

Superman: Okay, I made you an ultrasonic signal pistol instead. You like guns, right?

Batman: ...

But Spam is delicious. Oh... I seem to recall having a suckerman toy as a kid. Not exactly like the one pictured, but same idea.

If it helps, think of that gun as a Phantom Zone project.

You'd think putting "1999" in the show title would make it hard to market a calendar for 1977 (or any other year). On the other hand I might have had fun filling it with notes about what I planned my future life to be. "May 12: take in jetpack for tune-up."

Sigh..."projector." Too old to type on a phone.
