5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

EBAY LINK Popy Kamen Rider Stronger Challenge Machine Figure + Kabutoro 1975 Evel Knievel– We covered the Challenge Machines in Toy-Ventures Issue 3, they’re Japanese versions of Evel Knievel but featuring Japanese Superheroes. I want all of these, real, real bad.


EBAY LINK M*A*S*H HEAD QUARTERS-  I love Rack Toys and M*A*S*H didn’t go too many and this “Head quarters” by Ja-Ru is a real treat, it’s got BJ and Col. Potter on the card, so I’m going to say it’s early 1980s.


Apparently these were sold at Universal Studios theme park and related to the friendly Frankenstein that wandered the park, so is it a souvenir?  I need to know!


EBAY LINK Buck Rogers Shaker Maker Set- Who wants to spend a post-covid rainy day at my house making these? Come on, let’s paint a chubby Tiger Man together!

EBAY LINK Paper Hero Gatchaman- This is the Japanese version of the OurWays Studios Jointed Heroes but with Mark from G-Force, this is incredible.

    Just found Monster I-Scream Spoons on ebay. Thought you’d dig it – can’t do a link in these comments, though, but they’re searchable.

    Hi Brian! I’m selling my collection of vintage toys online and the only hit on searching the M.A.S.H. set is some museum and you ;). Do you have any idea of its worth? Thanks in advance. Joep,
