Battlestar Galactica - 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Battlestar Galactica Vertibird (eBay Link)

Okay, so technically, this isn’t a Battlestar Galactica toy, but it totally is. Mattel pulled a little label-slap action (something that is VERY Mattel)  swapping BSG (which I assume aired in Italy?) with the very popular Mazinga Z television series. Such “nobody will notice” swappery can also be seen on the Remco Land of the Giants Space Sled (AKA Super Car) and  Fonzie’s Dream Rod.

Spider-Man Kite- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Spider-Man Inflatable Kite (eBay link)

I miss goofy inflatable kits, this Spider-Man one seems to have the “webbing underarms” I seem to be obsessed with. Spider-Man seems naked without them !

Universal Studios Ride film 1977- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Universal Stuidos tour from 1977 film (eBay Link) –

I am obsessed with the Universal Studios tour, it’s where I went on my honeymoon. This preloaded home movie is a joy. I shouldn’t be surprised such things existed, but it was new to me. I am happy to say that you can watch this whole thing on YouTube for free, hooray!

Diener Monster Erasers- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Diener Monster Erasers (eBay Link)

Bless you Diener for making school supplies fun, these were a massive deal in grade school. I once had a whole store display of the Aliens but foolishly sold it.

Doc Savage Statue- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Doc Savage promotional statue (eBay Link)

Speaking of selling regrets (or have we all just switched to “Regerts” now?) , I bought one of these promo statues in 1987 at a Toronto comic show for about 20 bucks. I love the Doc Savage movie and I was on a big reading kick of the novels at the time. In college, someone offered me 100 dollars for it, and I took it; it was too much to pass up. Seeing the price on this one made me realize I may never reunite with Doc. It’s still super bad ass and I’ll keep a space for it on my shelf.

    I went to Universal back then, I remember most of what the film showed. Plus a whole lot more. It was something to experience.
