Five Awesome Things on Ebay this Week

Five Awesome Things on Ebay this Week

Scare Cycles FrankenCycle by Ideal- After Evel Knievel did his little trick with a baseball bat, Ideal toys was left with a very popular toy concept without a theme. Scare Cycles placed the classic monsters on choppers, it made no sense but who cared?

Speaking of weird nonsense on Bikes- Who didn’t want a freewheeling Alan Alda on a motorcycle as a kid? I would have preferred Jack Klugman but this isn’t terrible.

Buck Rogers Playset by HG Toys- I don’t know what I love more here, the toy or that gorgeous Earl Norem art on the box.

FireBirds are Go! – One of the more blatant knock offs produced by Zee Toys, they weren’t even trying to disguise that these were ripping off Gerry Anderson’s Thunderbirds and I love them for that!

Sealed Remco Mini Monster Play Case- I always liked the notion of the Monsters being room mates, even as a kid.

    After buying the "MASH" motorcycle, maybe I'll get the Smokin' hot, DRAGNET motorcycles, with Jack Webb and Harry Morgan on them. 😀

    It was always my dream to procure Father Mulcahey on a friction chopper…alas, not even Gurham's would make it…

    I imagine Quincy would be riding in the sidecar of Hawkeye's motorcycle, griping about his driving.

    My parents' workplace would hand those Buck Rogers playsets out at Christmastime when I was younger as a gift for boys, so my brother and I got those for a few years in a row.
