5 Awesome Things on eBay this week
Fleetwood Toys Marvel Comics Stamp Set (eBay Link)–I am pretty sure my friend got this at his 7th birthday party, I remember being super envious. Also, look at those 70s B-Listers! Who would have thunk they’d all have billion-dollar franchises now.
Mego Dallas Card Game (eBay Link)–My parents were religious about Dallas, it was kind of insane. They had a massive “Who Shot Jr?” party, this was a total thing. I remember seeing this game as a kid and well, it had no effect on me at all. Dallas showed me that grown-ups constantly day drink and fool around and I wasn’t all that into it save for Victoria Principle. Mego was actually going to make action figures too, I’m glad they didn’t.
Planet of the Apes Archery Set (eBay Link)–I am not sure a single arrow appears in the Apes films but OH MY GOD, I WANT THIS!
John Travolta for president iron on (eBay link)–What was once a ridiculous notion, seems slightly more plausible these days, although I’d prefer Ray Jay Johnson myself.
Knock-Off Love Boat Isaac GI Joe (eBay link)— After Mego folded some of their molds ended up on knock-off type toys, none more memorably than Isaac from the ill-fated line of Love Boat action figures. Isaac showed up in numerous discount lines, sometimes as a white dude!
