7 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Spider-Man and Captain America Richochet Racers - 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week


Spider-Man and Captain America Richochet Racers (eBay Link)

I’ve never owned these toys but have always been obsessed with them since I saw them at my friend Richard’s House. None of it makes sense and none of it has to, I always loved the comic book ad for this, it also makes zero sense, even to a kid.


AHI Planet of the Apes Zing Wing- 5 Awesome Things on ebAY THIS WEEK

AHI Planet of the Apes Zing Wing

AHI Planet of the Apes Zing Wing (eBay Link)

AHI Sold a lot of Zing-Wings based on pop culture, like Star Trek and Spider-Man. The word “Frisbee” was the one we all used but all the other toy companies had to make up their own word. 



Tomland Sonic Woman Knock Off- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Tomland Bionic Woman Knock Off (eBay Link)

For those not in the know, Tomland Toys was a company not exactly all that concerned about lawsuits. Case in point, they produced the second most galling copyright theft next to “Mr. Rock” by Lincoln International. “Sonic Woman” was a Bionic Woman clone. She wears a red track suit and has two silver limbs. I love her. 


Here is our Sonic Man and Woman episode of Toy-Ventures in case you missed it.



C-3Po bootleg Carnival Prize- 5 Awesome Things on Ebay this week

Bootleg Carnival Plush C3-PO (eBay Link)

I don’t have words. I’m not a big Star Wars guy, but I am a fan of bootlegs and Carnivals (and, as an aside, Corndogs), so as Khan said, “It Tasks Me!” But I’m probably going to forget about it.


Fire Ball X-L5 Paper Dolls- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week


Fireball XL-5 Paper Dolls (eBay Link)

I’m too young for Gerry Anderson’s Fireball X-L5, but I admire its mid-century “retro-future” charm. It’s so delightful. I know the entire theme tune and love seeing the detail in the merchandise. Lovely stuff but I don’t really know the series all that well.


Pink Lady Board Game- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Milton Brady Pink Lady (Minus Jeff) Boardgame (eBay Link)

“Pink Lady” were a Japanese sensation before they got their variety series in the US. What blows my mind more here is not that they got a game but that Milton Bradley was also doing board games in Japan? I learned today! I deserve a reward of some kind!

Mego Mistake Klingon- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Mego Klingon Card Variant (eBay Link)

I guess for a brief time in the UK, Palitoy ran out of Klingon Cards and just created this jazzy sticker to go over it. Just a running change in a company’s day-to-day problem solving, now an insane adult collectible. I won’t make fun; I love this sort of thing, and the Mego Klingon is a brilliant action figure.
