5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

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.

    Oh yes, rug hooking was a blast. So much better than those melting bead things my daughters had. I hated trying to get them to the ironing board without messing up their little masterpieces.

    I’ve never seen those old west cups before. Seems like an odd choice.

    Tempted to get that Xena just have it to trade you for something.
