Five Awesome Things on eBay this week

Corgi Liberator from Blake's 7- I had one of these as a kid, so did many of my friends. I find it funny that none of us knew it was based on a television show and that ALL OF US FLEW IT BACKWARDS.

Complete set of Filmation Space Academy figures- I mentioned these Aviva figures recently in a Toy-Ventures video. While I always leaned towards "Jason of Star Command", these are kind of awesome and now I'm seriously considering them.

Fisher Price Adventure People Super Speed Racer- I drove my mother crazy for this once, I did eventually get it for Christmas. I still have mine!

Fully Jointed Action Kojak- I can honestly remember being six years old and staring at this in a Bi-Way store thinking "Why did they make that?". I'm still not certain!

Full display of Mod Watches-  Stuff like this, it's dimestore happiness. Also, I miss the use of the word "Mod", let's bring it back.

Boy, the thought of a 6 year old removing the costume from a Telly Savalas doll is all kinds of disturbing.

@kpach - To throw a little gas on that fire, the package does say "pose in any position."

I wonder how many seconds it took from opening the package to the cigar and lollipops disappearing.

It's not strange at all that a TV crime fighter like Kojak would have an action figure. In those days all TV cops and detectives had action figures. I have the Kojak figure and his accessory set with the trench coat and bullhorn.
I also have the set of Space Academy figures, but beware- the joints deteriorate and the hands fall off and crumble. I had to replace their bodies with Mego bodies. They're not a perfect fit, but they work.

But this "action figure" is a chubby middle-aged bald guy in a suit with a cigar.

Not exactly Starsky. Or Hutch. Not much youth appeal.
