5 Awesome Things on eBay this week
Donmoor Captain Kirk Pajamas (eBay Link) I know I drone on and on about the Star Trek clothing produced by Donmoor but I don’t care, it’s awesome and I wish I had this stuff as a kid. No boogie man would screw with a kid wearing that smug Shat on his chest, he looks like he’s just about to sing!
LJN Space:1999 Commlinks (eBay Link) These portable walkie-talkies by LJN were actually rather well done for the time. The viewscreen included cardboard black and white photos so you can facetime with Commander Koenig. I remember buying a set of these in 1987 from a collector, she said to me “Can you imagine people wearing a phone on their belt like that? Stupid?”. I really wanted to find her number in the late 1990s.
World of Sid and Marty Krofft theme park badge (eBay Link)- So sometime in the mid-seventies, Sid and Marty Krofft got their own indoor amusement park in Atlanta Georgia. You can actually see a little of it in the opening credits to the Krofft Super Show. Honestly, I would have given my college fund to go there as a kid and I just realized, my family was in Atlanta in 1977, Aghhhhh! Anyway, this patch is one of the few souvenirs I’ve ever seen. I’m praying there is a Sleestak one.
Planet of the Apes Talking Viewmasters (eBay Link)- Confession time, I have never experienced talking view masters. My cousin had them but she didn’t have any batteries and she didn’t have any cool sets anyway. I think the coolest thing she owned was Caspar. I want this set badly.
Rocky Bubble Fun (eBay Link)- These toys didn’t sell well because the scene where Rocky blew bubbles at Apollo Creed’s funeral was deemed “Nonsensical” and “Insensitive” by the stuck-up test audiences.
