Hamburglar Autograph - 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

The Hamburglar’s Autograph (eBay Link)

My friend Courtney sent me this, and well, I didn’t know this was a thing. Apparently, the actor who played the Hamburglar, the original “Nightmare Fuel” edition does signings? I can’t imagine anyone faking this.

Now, I’m no fan of crowds, but I would go to any Con or Expo and gladly brave the (inevitable) BO and getting smacked by backpacks to shake that hand.



Bruce Lee Black Light Poster- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

I’d buy this, but I’d need wood panelling, and I tend to avoid lumber yards. It’s a rare phobia.


Rapco Wolfman- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Rapco Wolfman Statue (eBay Link)

I’ve waxed poetically about Rapco monster hobby sets for many years, but I actually don’t own any. After my debacle trying to make a Captain Kirk Mix n Mold set, I think buying one that is done competently is the best course of action for me.

Star Trek necklace- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Star Trek Enterprise necklace (eBay Link)

70s Trek merch is awesome; this pendant totally reminds me of “Cat’s Paw,” and that is a good thing in this house. Those little puppets at the end are so neat too.

New Adventures of Gilligan Dip Dots set (eBay Link)

Warning: do not confuse “Dip Dots” with “Dippin’ Dots” as one tastes terrible, and the other is just paint. I freaking loved the Filmation New Adventures of Gilligan as a kid. My friend Joe gave me a DVD of it years back and yeah, my kids didn’t get it. They grew up when the original series wasn’t on 20 times daily.  I guess you had to be there.

Before anyone bemoans this fact, I got them hooked on Superfriends, Ren and Stimpy, and so many other classic cartoons, so they got an education.

    No, no, no, no, no… The “nightmare fuel” Hamburgler was the original mask that was sort of a narrow egg shape and 50% of it was nose (this was before Howard Morris provided the “robble, robble”)… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjCmw5jFXKI There is at least one other version of the mask between the original and the one in the photo above.
