5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Hasbro Super Joe Commander– GI Joe got shrunk down and sent into Outer space in the late 1970s and it wasn’t a big hit. Also, the figures disintegrated over time, so even MOC is kind of trashed but I’m obsessed with them, they’re all kinds of gorgeous.

 

Peter Pan Shazam! Record: I had no idea that Peter Pan (which would become Power Records) did a Shazam 45. Although it has no comic, I super duper need to own this.

 

Black Hole Dish Towel- If you buy one dish towel this year, make sure it includes the Cygnus.

 

Condorman the novel- I remember being so excited to see Condorman as a kid, oh my god, a superhero movie! Sorry, but this is a prime example of being the past not being the “good old days” although I still have fond memories of this film.

 

Generic 1970s Christmas Stockings– Oh sure, it’s totally thoughtless but it’s also all kinds of wonderful that these generic children’s gift items were produced! Ironically, I want to thank my friend Noelle for this.

    I always liked the idea of SuperJoe. Wish one of those open license writers would tackle the property.

      I always felt like they really needed to expand that mythology a little more. As a kid, I had no idea what Super Joe was doing or where he was. Needed a comic book ad or something.

        I always circled those generic stockings in my wish book every year. Every year I failed to get one. The mystery of what could be inside that stocking was a huge temptation. Should I buy them for my kids? The look of bewilderment would be priceless.

    I love the Condorman novelization. The film is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. There was hardly any merchandise for the film which, being a Disney film, is kind of a surprise. I wrote an article about it for my blog:

    What’s going on with the cover of that Condorman book? Looks like they took a still of him firing the laser cannon in the boat, and replaced the laser cannon with… a photo of a car stunt. He looks like one of those guys who stands by the side of the road twirling signs advertising cheap mattresses.
