5 Awesome things on Ebay this Week

Robot Man with Four Faces- I did a Youtube video about this awesome Bionic Man Knock Off earlier in the year. It's such a cool toy and it almost never pops up loose and complete like this.

Sunshine Family Knock Off Set- I never like the Sunshine Family, as a kid I was terrified of their blank-eyed expressions. Leave it to Lincoln International (A favourite of mine) to knock off the concept but also JUST MAKE THEM EVEN CREEPIER. Seriously, look at the dad....

Duke Thyron mask- Italian toy company Eddison GIOCATTOLI created this wonderful science fiction toy line called TH3 complete with action figures and role-play items. They're obviously inspired by the popularity of Star Wars but are really well designed and don't deserve to be called Knockoffs. Neat stuff!

Holmes and Yo-You British Annual- I swear to God, the UK made a hardback annual out of every single tv program in the world. I can't wait to find "Hello Larry!". This book is filled with stories, games and comics about a show that was cancelled two years prior.

Kaptain Kool and the Kongs Record Player- I'd think you'd be the coolest kid in school if you brought this to a party. Also, it kind of looks like Turkey is copping a feel here, I think it's time for a visit to the Krofft HR department, which in my imagination is run by Frank from "Electra Woman" and a Sleestak in a tie.

You're not kidding, that ersatz 'Sunshine Family' dad doll is the most disturbing one I've seen since the Zuni Fetish Doll!!! said...

The guy on the top right of Holmes and Yoyo looks like Ray Liotta.

I just bought this figure on Ebay a few minutes ago. I have you, Mr. Plaid Stallions to thank for it. The Robot Man is incomplete and has some reproduction parts, but it's mine. I also enjoy knock-off figures, and I've got a few in my collection.

Byy the way I recommend MeTV's "Collector's Call", It's a show for people like us.

The Krofft HR department is obviously run by Human Resources Pufnstuf.

Wow, I was a huge fan of Edison cap guns in the early 80s but never knew about that TH3 line of figures. I do remember seeing one of those funky laser pistols - maybe they just lumped it in with the rest of their cap guns after the action figure line folded.
