5 Awesome things on eBay this week.


Japanese Spider-Man doll by Popy- I have a deep affinity for the Japanese Spider-Man TV series and it's merchandise also gets much sunshine from me. This toy is loaded with so many wonderful gimmicks (most of them having nothing to do with Spider-Man himself) that it's a total win. Missiles coming out of hands? Why not?

Laverne and Shirely Tiger Claw Necklace by Harmony- Harmony made the weirdest stuff, they had odd licenses and I can't get enough of them. Every piece is just yeah,,,,,








Cheinco Planet of the Apes waste basket- It's the official waste basket of PlaidStallions as it's the one in my office. I've owned a couple in my life and honestly it always been a struggle between Apes or this one.






Japanese Godzilla Bendy- I am such a big fan of dorky looking Godzilla toys.



Mexican lobby Card for Phantom of the Paradise- Why do people remind me cool things exist? This thing is currently sitting at six dollars! Arrgggghhhhh


New Avengers Jigsaw Puzzle- This is actually being sold by my Podcast partner and friend, Mr  Lenzi. I find it kind of absurd as New Avengers was an action show and the puzzle is of John Steed...... leaving his building or possibly a restaurant? This must have flown off the shelves!




BONUS ABSURDITY


21 Kwai Chang Caine figures and one master Po - These are from the Multiple toys "Kung Fu" playset that came out in 1974, I don't why this guy has so many Caines but I need that Master Po, so does anyone know 21 Kung Fu fans who want a $2 Caine?

5 Awesome things on eBay this week


Planet of the Apes Wagon toy by AHI- I cannot stress how much i love this AHI Apes toy, if i didn't have one I'd buy this. I'm not sure if it's the Astronaut figure in full space suit or Dr. Zaius driving but either way, I just want to hug this.



Japanese Die Cast Superman Figure- This is sort of like a Superman Micronaut, add to that Neal Adams art and I'm all weak in the knees.


Spider-Man magic transfer set by Colorforms- I had this as a kid, you made little standees and I still have the Green Goblin one. Memories....




Starlog salutes Star Trek T Shirt- It doesn't get more 1980s than this powder blue bad boy, you'll never know when it'll be Star Trek's 20th Anniversary again.


Battle of the Planets Schoolbag from Greece- I have been collecting Battle of the Planets stuff since the early 90s and this is something I've never seen before.

Superhero AM Radios


What was your AM Radio as a kid? Mine was "Little Sprout" from the "Green Giant" commercials, I assume my mother won it.

It was pretty cool but my older sibling had an FM radio in her room, so i mainly just kept my door open so I could hear Black Sabbath.
