EBAY LINK: Spanish Frankenstein Figure Everyone knows I’m a sucker for all things Frankenstein and unlicensed toys but I ask you all to look into those eyes and think “do you blame me”? I rest my case.
EBAY LINK: Mighty Princess Xena Knock-Off doll I dig Xena Warrior Princess a whole bunch, some people are surprised by that but it’s true. I have one of her prop swords hanging over my teevee. I also love crappy Knock Offs and while I do own the Hercules from this set, the Xena has always eluded me, ok it’s twenty bucks but yeah, I don’t have it right now.
EBAY LINK: Kooky Creature Puppet I totally remember this weird item, the 70s were loaded with interesting craft items, these were the Gen-X version of apps and I love them all. Ok, not Macrame so much but oh, rug hooking, you rocked my world.
EBAY LINK: HG Toys The Alien Puzzle After Star Wars (perhaps you’ve heard of it), the 70s were just confounded with cool, generic space stuff like this. I love the art on this guy.
EBAY LINK: Old West Slurpee Cups I grew up in a “7-11less void” as a child, I did not know the pleasure of a slurpee nor did I ever get to keep the cup. Whenever I see stuff like this it fills my soul with a tremendous feeling of FOMO.

Mego Knock Off Headquarters– The leading group discussing 70s Dime store knock-offs of Mego action figures, we talk vintage toys, not others. It’s a fun group where we talk about Lincoln International, AHI, Tomland, and all those companies that never thought to put their name on things because….lawyers.
