5 Awesome Things on eBay this week
EBAY LINK: Marx Spider-Man Scooter- I think Peter Parker did briefly have a Vespa in the comics, although I don’t think it was pink. Also, there would be no point in him riding it while dressed as Spider-Man. I don’t know why I’m trying to rationalize this weird and super-duper rare toy.
EBAY LINK: Spectreman Record– I’m a huge fan of kid’s records and of the Japanese TV show Spectreman. I think I like Spectreman’s main nemesis, Dr. Gori better than the hero. He’s a space-aged Dr. Zaius who talks with his hands. I want this.
EBAY LINK: Liddle Kiddles Viewmasters– My dad sold close-out Liddle Kiddles in the 1970s, we had tons and tons of space ones. View masters about toy lines like Barbie or GI Joe are especially magical to me, they create little worlds and really inspired my imagination as a kid.
EBAY LINK: Planet of the Apes Play Feet I know a lot of people like to say that Star Wars was the first science fiction movie merchandise bonanza but think these are exhibit “A” in my evidence to the contrary. If they made it, they put an Ape on it.
EBAY LINK: Kaptain Kool and the Kongs Radio– I loved the Krofft supershow as a kid and I even used to buy the Gold Key comic. This would have been mine back in the day, heck if I run into it now it might come home with me!
