JAWS video Game Sell Sheet - 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Jaws Arcade Game Sell Sheet (eBay Affiliate Link)

As a kid, I wasn’t allowed in the early 1970s arcades, which spawned a fascination with the games. I have played this at the CNE or Wasaga Beach (which had antique arcade machines in the 1990s) but I can’t remember the game. What a lovely cabinet, it just grabs you.

Monster Inflatable TV Chair- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

I think it’s unrealistic to think I’ll ever be 85 pounds again, but bobdammit I want this chair. It’s my on-going obsession with Lizard Men, this guy looks like he jumped out of “Archer: Fugitive from the Empire” if you get that reference, we’re close in age.

Cool 70s Batman Pencil Box - 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

I’ve never seen this case before; there is something about 70s off-model DC Comics characters. Also, I’m a really big fan of The Riddler, so that makes me a bit biased. I do love his booties.

Good news Canada, you’re getting exclusive Underoos of Airwolf. Bad News Canada, you’re also making a 4th season of Airwolf with Barry Van Dyke and nobody else.

Shreddies Tron Box- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Tron Shreddies Box (eBay Affiliate Link) –

More Canada? You got it bub!

Many people might know of my childhood battles with Shreddies (AKA the wallpaper paste you won’t die from eating). After the Black Hole, Shreddies never got me with another promotion. However, in the 1990s, they started giving away Star Trek ships, and I had a dealer friend buy boxes just for the prize (I also did this for “ToyShop” money). Volker bought an entire pallet of the stuff and hated it (duh), but the food banks wouldn’t take them because they were open, and the homeless shelters wouldn’t take the sealed bags. His wife explained later that she started using the Shreddies as Christmas decorations; it was a weird conversation that I’m glad I had.

    If the wikipedia article, on the [arcade, video game] is correct, then the video game looks like: Shark Jaws [tm].
    Shark Jaws was a 1970s video game, that was an unofficial tie-in, to the film, Jaws. In the game- you play a scuba diver, who tries to catch fish, + not get eaten by a great white shark.
    Some videos about the game, on youtube [tm], don’t have sound, but I think the game had sound, like the diver screaming, when the diver gets…sometimes eaten.

    Here’s the wikipedia article- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shark_Jaws
