Bootleg Batman Outfit- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Knock Off Batman Costume (eBay Link)
– Wow, this guy is fantastic. It takes just what it needs from Batman, but not enough to get sued.

Guisval Bareta Car- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Awesome Bareta car set from Spain (eBay Link)

I freely admit I stole this idea from the latest episode of ToyShop on Tour (Forgive me, Joe), but I HAD TO FEATURE THIS. Not only does the little Baretta figure have the darn bird in its hand, but there is a figure of an honest-to-goodness PIMP.  I didn’t get any pimps as a kid.


Kung Fu toys- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Oddball toys based on the tv series “Kung Fu” (eBay Link)

I’m not going to lie, I own the Kwai Chang Caine from this set but not the Master Po. I will find him someday, this (slightly pricey) auction has given me the brand name and just like Master Po, I am patient.

Cipsa Kid Acero Devil River Trip- 5 Awesome eBay

Mexican Big Jim Devil River Trip Set (eBay Link)

I had this set as a kid (warning: The boat does not float, don’t do it!) and while I like the Canadian packaging very much, this is amazing. Mexican toys like this don’t pop up in the box much and that’s a terrible shame. This is a joy to behold and I just learned that a “Kaiman” is a species different from an Alligator. I’m learnding SuperNintendo Chalmers!


The Monsters Lp

The Monsters LP (eBay Link)

If I ever see this at a record store, it’s going home with me. Yes they cover the Monster Mash, but this just looks like a ton of fun.
