5 Awesome Things on eBay this week


Starblazers gumball machine card from Japan- As any loyal reader of this blog might know, I have a gigantic love for Star Blazers. Also, I had zero merchandise as a kid. Had I seen this display of Japanese Keshi as a child, I'd have mugged old ladies (namely my grandmother) for quarters until I had every single character and ship on this card, AHGHHHH!



Logan's Run Iron On Transfer- I've had some bad luck with vintage Iron-Ons lately but I'm sorely tempted by this original one from the 1970s.



Fantasy Island Poster Art Set- I love all things Fantasy Island and feel like I should point this out, even though I feel the seller might be a little optimistic about that price? I know there is a modest budget horror movie coming out but hey fella, calm down. Still, this is a beautiful set by Craft Master.




Vintage Star Wars Promo poster from Cascade- I've never seen these before and I miss the era when we'd bug our moms to buy a certain brand of dishwashing detergent because...Star Wars! I think I just miss caring about stuff like this in general.


Big Jim store display from Germany- I'm not certain about the price of this but I love Big Jim and Store displays so I felt like sharing it with the world. If you are into Big Jim and have Richie Rich's allowance, here you go!

You should do a book on store displays.
It is a mostly undocumented form of art and design.

I had that Star Wars poster, and if I remember correctly there were more in the series. A friend’s dad down the street worked for the company and hooked us up. They also had posters for Superman: The Movie.

Is there some tactical advantage to putting camouflage on a hot air balloon? And if there is, why would you write "Big Jim" in the center in huge red letters?

Those Yamato trinkets... To die for.
