5 Awesome Things on eBay this Week
LJN Road Stars Space:1999 diecast vehicle set (Ebay Link) The Space:1999 Eagle is my favourite spaceship of all time and I love the charm of the LJN road stars. Especially because they also made the moon buggy and Captain Zantor’s ship (Which makes it Christopher Lee’s ship). This boxed set is plenty rare and will go way beyond my means but I love looking at it.
Dr. Strange Halloween Costume (eBay Link)– Dr. Strange rarely got merchandise when we were kids, he was definitely not an “A-Lister” that movies have made him today. In 1980, Ben Cooper not only made him a costume but a Jiggler. I’m really not sure why, the TV movie had come and gone. I do love how angry he appears though.
Future generations really need to know that yes, there was a TV show about a nun whose hat made her fly. I was there and sometimes, I doubt this construct. Without knowledge, it could happen again!
Well, it’s October, so I think it’s cool to do two costumes this week, especially when one is from England. Berwick made a lot of cool stuff in the 70s like Costumes for Doctor Who and Captain Britain. Not enough attention is given to this.
McCloud novels from Japan (ebay link)– I mostly remember McCloud during a period of unemployment in my 20s when the Mystery movie reruns on A&E were something of a ritual for me. I’m surprised to find out the show enjoyed popularity and merchandise in Japan, wait, no I’m not.
