Flash Gordon/Action Man Knock-Off Figure (eBay Link)– This is a really interesting series of Knock-Offs that look suspiciously like Action Man but they resemble pop culture characters like Tarzan, Flash Gordon and I think Captain Future? Europe has so many little treasures in the field of Knock-Offs.

Weird Dolphin Water Pistol (eBay Link) – Welcome to the low hanging fruit joke of this week’s segment. I’ve seen this type of watergun for Popeye and most famously Batman but this very happy dolphin is new to me.

1941 Glider Toys by Imperial (eBay Link)– I have a mild predilection with 1941 Rack Toys because not many children’s items had John Belushi on them. However, this listing added my website name in the description, so it had to be featured. Being known for weird rack toys is the legacy I could only hope for children’s children.

Sweat Hogs Patch (eBay Link) = I bet you that this wasn’t officially licensed.

Micronauts/Microman Knock Off figure (eBay Link)– Here is something I haven’t seen before a Knock-Off of Microman (we called them Micronauts here). Translucent action figures are never not cool.


This limited edition set includes both books, all six magazines (with available premiums) and a Captain Canuck action figure. It’s a $150 value for a great price. I only can make six of these, so don’t wait.

    That watergun may have been created for the Flipper tv series. I have a fuzzy memory of those around that time period or it was an item sold at a non-Seaworld parks (had one in Galveston that sold items like that.).

    Can you imagine the sort of childhood growing up in the eighties I would have had if 1941 had been a huge hit.
