Hasbro Flash Gordon Paint by Numbers (eBay Link)– I adore the Filmation Flash Gordon cartoon and any merchandise that came out from it is OK by me. This set is an underrated gem.
Mattel Welcome Back Kotter Playset (eBay Link)– “Sweathog Mania” is something I plan to address in a future Toy-Ventures episode but this toy has to be the absolute high point in the series merchandise. A gorgeous playset that really is more than the show deserves.
TJ Hooker Rack Toy (eBay Link)– HOOKER IS A GOOD COP! Anytime a cop show got beyond a single season, Rack Toy manufacturers jumped on it so they could sell handcuffs and guns. I’m honestly surprised there are no “Hill Street Blues” rack toys. The ring is kind of weird but also a fun touch.
Colorforms Outer Space Men set (eBay link)– I’ve probably featured this before but it’s just so cool. I wanted this set so bad but passed when i realized these amazing action figures were not in the box.
Kitty O’Neil Stunt Woman doll (eBay Link)– This doll is a real ground breaker, a fashion doll based on Kitty O’Neil, the pioneering, hearing impaired Stunt Women. This is a far cry from Barbie as O’Neil was known for driving fast cars and doubling for Wonder Woman and the Bionic Man. It’s nice to see this homage to someone who deserves it.
