Hanna Barbara Sticker Album- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Oh man, as much as I watched the Flinstones every day at noon (CFTO Baby!), my heart will always belong to Birdman and the Galaxy Trio which actually show up in this thorough little book!

Vampirella Poster- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week


Vampirella Door Poster (eBay Affiliate Link)

I have the weirdest relationship with the character. I owned one of her magazines for a single day until I sold it for less than I paid to a very beautiful woman who wanted to create an outfit for herself. I saw the terrible movie (and I’m a huge Jim Wynorski fan) and that’s about it. However, if Mego released a Vampirella doll tomorrow, I’d take ten!

There is something so iconic and fun about the character’s design. Also, we need more female figures in 8″ scale….


Microman Knock Off- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

MicroMan Knock Off Space Tank (eBay Affiliate Link)

I miss the era of the early 80s Transformer Knock-Off boom. My first gig was selling these imports as “Transformers” in a dodgy kiosk at the Whitby Mall that was just gone one day. I really want this, but I will likely forget when it ends.


Remco I Dream of Jeannie- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week


Remco I Dream of Jeannie doll (eBay Affiliate Link)

It’s interesting to not how many of my beloved childhood television shows were syndicated shows cancelled before I was born. Remco’s Jeannie came out in 1976 and I think that was at three years after the cartoon. Afternoon syndication was a gold mine, I’m surprised there weren’t Monkees action figures.

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

Beneath the Planet of the Apes Promotional Newspaper (eBay Affiliate Link)

20th Century Fox used to release these wonderful faux newspapers for the Apes Sequels. I put the one for Conquest (my favourite Apes film) on the site a ways back. These are campy fun and a style of marketing we’ll never see again, unless the Apes take over*……

*If the Apes do in fact, take over, I will turn you all in on a dime! Do not trust me….

    If you’re really serious about looking for- Monkees, action figures-like toys, please check out this site-

    The Toy Box, a blog, talks about clothed, Monkees dolls, that were made from [1967-1968?], by Hasbro. The Monkees dolls were in a series of dolls, called, “Show Biz Babies”. The dolls don’t look like babies. I think the dolls are about 4-6 inches tall. Cheers. Have a good day. 🙂
