5 Awesome Things on eBay this Week

5 Awesome Things on eBay this Week

Robot Man with Four Faces Maskatron Knock Off (eBay Link)– You may have noticed that I’m kinda into Knock Off or bootleg action figures and this one is definitely one of my favourites. An insane mash-up of the Six Million Dollar Man’s nemesis Maskatron with GI Joe and Planet of the Apes mixed in for extra measure. What more could a 70s kid want? I did a video on this guy here.


Fuzzy 1970s MotorCycle Helmet (eBay Link) My friend Courtney sent me this and yeah, I felt inclined to add it on principle. We need shag in our bathrooms, why not our heads dammit!

Battle of the Planets Computer Game from the UK (eBay Link)- How did I not know this was a thing? Probably because I didn’t grow up in the UK and own a Sinclaire Computer. Those are probably important to the process.


RoboTech SDF-1 Battle Fortress I went through a RoboTech phase in grade 9 but I was mildly oblivious to the toys. This massive cardboard fortress is just balls-out awesome and probably a lot of fun.


Doctor Who in distress record (eBay link)- Yeah, so at one point in time and space, Doctor Who was put on hiatus by the BBC. How do we save our favourite Time Lord? Make the worst record ever. All the money went to charity and their hearts were in the right place but yeah, it’s pain.
