5 Awesome Things on eBay this week! Happy Friday! EBAY LINK Logan’s Run Farrah Fawcett Towel There really isn’t enough Logan’s Run merchandise out there and honestly, there will never be enough for me. I do, however, have a soft spot for stuff like this towel, which is obviously meant to cash more in on […]
I found these wonderful pages from a 1976 Dinky catalog in my server and thought I’d give them a proper share, Dinky was the Rolls Royce of diecast and I love their licensed vehicles from Gerry Anderson and Star Trek with a passion, they’re just brilliant toys. Their Eagles may have not had show […]
Mystery Hulk Figure- This thing isn’t a bootleg as it’s marked Marvel and honestly, my best guess is it came from something like a Mold-A-Rama type machine. Anyone know what this is? It’s bugging me. Golodarak Cosmic Station – Goldorak or Grendizer as it’s known in Japan got a toy line in France […]
This week’s toy-ventures takes a look at the merchandising from Gerry Anderson’s classic series Space:1999, particularly the lower cost “Rack Toys” made by Azrak-Hamway International.

The Zython was offered in the 1977 Mattel Catalog as an alien character to go alongside with Mattel’s Space:1999 action figure line. It never appeared in the series but was a rather welcome addition to the line which desperately needed more flair. However, sales on Space:1999 merch weren’t strong enough to warrant a wide release and […]
I love Space:1999 and I occasionally dabble in lunch boxes when I find them for a decent price, so it should not come as a shock that I own the stunning Space:1999 lunch box. Say what you will about the series, it had some incredible merchandise. More after the jump: The Eagles, easily my favourite […]
I’m not sure what your favourites were but I had a mean love affair with playing Hangman and staring at the Sleestak on the “Land of the Lost” board….. Like our Facebook Page Check out our Instagram Get the expanded digital edition of Rack Toys here.

The undisputed king of the “Rack Toy” in the 1970s was Azrak-Hamway International or “AHI” for short. They were riding high with past hits like Batman, Spider-Man, Star Trek, Space 1999 but 1978 saw them add James Bond 007, Farrah Fawcette, Donnie and Marie, the Walt Disney characters and their answer to Star Wars, Star […]
