5 Awesome Things on eBay this week
Miller High Life Tuxedo Jacket (eBay Link)– I may start a “Go Fund Me” for this. You see, it’s my dream to be invited to a charity fundraiser, like the kind that a Batman villain would rob wearing this, a top hat and cane. I will then proceed to yell at the top of my lungs “I DEEM THIS EVENT CLASSY!” and then start throwing firecrackers until I’m removed, probably by force. I’m sure it’ll be on YouTube or at least WorldStar. #lifegoals
Remco Adventure Boy (eBay Link)– Adventure boy was a pretty curious item from Remco. The gimmick was that he was a puppet of sorts and your fingers became his legs. I wonder if the person who invented this also created “Real Men” for Mattel later on. It’s kind of neat but it seems like a lot of work. OK, I was just a really lazy kid, whatever…
Land of the Giants Trash Can (eBay Link)– Land of the Giants is a really weird TV show but it’s also got some serious style to it (especially the logo) and I’m loving this trash can. The problem is, how many licensed trashcans can one Gen-x slacker type own? The answer is one and I never empty the darn thing.
Trio of cool Whitman Coloring Books (eBay Link)- Oh this is a treasure trove, not only do you get Battle of the Planets and Star Trek but a colouring book based on that weird Gold Key UFO comic? I’m all in!
Swamp Thing Presto Magix set (eBay Link)- Even though I was in college when it came out I am very nostalgic for the Kenner Swamp Thing toy line, mainly because I really wanted it when I was ten, dammit! I had no idea that Presto Magix was still a thing at this point but I love this with both of my hearts. That’s right, I’m from Galifrey but I’m it’s version of Canadian.
This limited edition set includes both books, all six magazines (with available premiums) and a Captain Canuck action figure. It’s a $150 value for a great price. I only can make six of these, so don’t wait.
