5 Awesome things on Ebay this week

Six Million Dollar Man Bank by Animals Plus- I bought my first one of these banks (A Cornelius from Planet of the Apes) a couple of months ago and now I'm seriously window shopping more. They aren't terribly expensive (this one is $26) and they encapsulate some very cool 70s properties, this may be my new obsession.

Flash Gordon Stickers- There is so little Flash Gordon merch from the movie but these are pretty great, these are stickers you put into an album. Oh boy, this was my jam as a kid, I wish they weren't the UK only.

Vintage Monster Figures- I'm honestly not sure the backstory on these guys, they just hit all those wonderful buttons for me, unlicensed, colourful and cheaply made.

Fantastic Journey Trading Cards- Cancelled after 13 episodes in 1977, Fantastic Journey never got a lick of merchandise that I've ever seen. However, in Costa Rica, they did get into a series of TV trading cards that also includes Holmes and Yo-Yo. Yup you heard me.

Atomic Man Command Para-Drop: If you recall my Atomic Man video from a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned the very rare Atomic Man sets. This is one of them and well, it's PRICEY! I just wanted to share that killer artwork.

Steve Austin looks like, "Hey, howzit goin'. I just bought this recliner from IKEA but I don't think I assembled it correctly."

LOL! I thought the same thing. Looks like he's relaxing on weird form of 70s lounge furniture. I guess he's supposed to be busting through a wall. Not really clear.

The monsters are from the 1960s and made by a company called Palmer plastics. Some kid has merely paint them . They came in several colors kind of like the marx monsters or the MPC monsters. Most monster collectors try to collect every color variant

The monster figures are in fact licensed

I have the Six Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman banks. The only other vintage coin banks I have are the Mego Spider-man Super Saver and a homemade ceramic piggy bank that a cousin gave me back in the late 1970's.
