Slime with Worms Commercial - 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Mattel Slime with Worms commercial (eBay Link)

I never had slime as a kid, well, not “official Mattel brand” Slime; I did manage some through a grocery store vending machine (so good!) For some reason, I vividly remember this commercial and really wanting the stuff. In hindsight, this sort of thing is almost impossible to ignore when you’re six. 

Parkes Run The Aliens figure - 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

The Aliens figure (eBay Link)

These Shogun Warrior knock off figures came out in the late 1970s and are absolutely charming. I’m personally in love with the logo.

Bootleg V Toys- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Bootleg Visitor ship from “V” (eBay Link)

We sure did robbed of officially licensed V toys in the 1980s but wow, did bootleggers try to fill that void. I love these little shuttle replicas and the seller has a whole bunch of options. I’ve also heard there is a segment on bootleg V action figures in the latest issue of Toy-Ventures. I know a guy there.

Black Velvet Bruce Lee - 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Black Velvet Bruce Lee (eBay Link)

I don’t think I really need to explain this; it speaks for itself. For those not into Kung Fu, may I offer you this hilarious off-brand Black Velvet Tweety Bird?



Great White Shark HG Puzzle- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Jaws era Shark Puzzle (eBay Link)

I can’t honestly tell if I like official “Jaws” merchandise more than “Generic Shark meant to look like Jaws” merchandise. They’re both kind of awesome.
