5 Awesome Things on eBay this week


City Beneath the Sea Viewmasters- I just discovered these were a thing, how the heck a busted TV pilot gets merchandise and Logan's Run didn't will haunt me. Anyway, I love this movie and will probably buy these...


Marx Green Machine- An original 70s issue! Man, I wanted one of these but got denied and the only kid who had one in my neighborhood, I wasn't allowed to play with! Double denied. I won't buy this because i can't ride it.






Captain America Sharp Shooter Set- The number of Lugers sold in Cap's name is rather robust. I do love the appearance of Kang on the card back, the hottest selling secret wars figure.



Frankenstein Conquers the World Vinyl Figure- Agggh, I feel like I've been missing meetings, I saw this movie when I was 9 and well, i'm not over it. I own zero merchandise despite me loving all things Toho and Frankenstein...


        


Brochure for the TV Series "The Starlost"- The StarLost is a  Canadian Television series created by Harlan Ellison (he completely disowned it because he's Harlan Ellison), it's boring, it's cheap and thanks to Canadian content laws, I've seen every episode and am fascinated with it. I just discovered today it was released on VHS with misleading packages, I may need to buy this....


PS, I'm selling some stuff on eBay as well and will continue to do so all weekend until i get my toy debt under control, please have a look at my items and please, check back often.

I think my local True Value hardware store still has some Secret Wars Kangs.

My Local TRU had Super Powers Darkseids until the mid 1990s, then they were replaced with "Total Justice Darkseids" which are probably still available.

Man, there's some good stuff people are hocking these days.

I don't remember ever seeing cork-firing toy guns on drugstore racks. Maybe they were wiped out by the late 70s Battlestar Galactica missile scandal.

There is supposed to be a new Roku channel that repeats "The Starlost" in its entirety...

I loved that show when I was a kid, but I can't imagine how horrible it must be now.

The Green machine! I know how you felt Brian. And I didn't have a Big wheel either...

It's interesting that you show a View Master set in this post, because I recently bought a Korg: 70,000 B.C. View Master, and it's great.
Yes, I remember that unfortunate Battlestar Galactica missile scandal. The Kenner Boba Fett action figure had to be changed because of it. I remember when my Boba Fett arrived in the mail, my brother was disappointed that it didn't fire any projectiles. I didn't care because I just loved the figure. I still have it, of course.

I was lucky enough to have a Green Machine in the 70s. I was the envy of all the Big Wheel kids.
