Action Heroes Transporter- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Marchon Action Heroes Transport (eBay Link)

This  Super Powers Knock-Off toy came out when I was in the ninth grade, and I HAD TO HAVE IT, which was weird for me, at least at that time. I think it was the packaging, which truly reminds me of Mego Superheroes artwork, is the trigger here. It still works; I almost bought this because it was on sale.I mean just look at those generic supervillains.


Planet of the Apes copycast set - 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Denys Fisher Planet of the Apes copycast set (eBay Link)

I’m pretty sure Planet of the Apes broke some sort of weird record with the number of plaster products they licensed. It seems like there are endless sets produced by multiple companies. This one, which sold in the UK is my favourite of all. 


Chef Boyardee Party Pizza Oven- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Chef Boyardee Party Pizza Oven (eBay Link)

File this under “I didn’t know this was a thing” for me. I had no idea that they marketed my favourite celebrity chef like this. I was RAISED on Chef Boyardee, although the pizza never grabbed me as a kid. As an adult, I crave it but it no longer exists here. I wonder if the promised mix is still good in this one.


Ultraman Carrying Care from Popy World Heroes- 5 Awesome things on eBay this week

I’ve done a lot of posts extolling the virtues of the Popy World Heroes, the amazing 3 3/4″ line aping Kenner Star Wars. I think the greatest things are these carry cases, which include an ejector feature. It’s really difficult to make a carry case cool, they are bottom rung as a birthday gift, so well done Popy.


Fires of Shandarr Playset- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

DFC Fires of Shandarr Playset (eBay Link)

I am not much of a fantasy fan, but the sheer brilliance of the sets that DFC put out clearly shows there was a fan in charge It’s got some real love in the mix. I At the very least, somebody at least saw the Hobbit on TV and paid attention.

    The art on that Super Hero Transporter reminds me of the non-Beano/Dandy annuals my Gran would get me on Christmas. Like the Hotspur.
