Fonzie Pendant- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Dang, I wish the photo was better, as it was the only printed evidence of Gabe Kaplan being referred to as a hero.

Stuffed Batman Alligator -5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Stuffed Baby Alligator Taxidermy As Bizarre Batman (eBay Link)

Hey folks, I don’t make this stuff; I just report on it. As much as I’m just sort of “meh” on stuffing dead animals, there is a certain appreciation I have for something so bananas as this.

Ultraman Water Gun (eBay Link)

Bonus Item! I had one of these and featured it in Rack Toys. It’s crazy awesome but not the most ergonomic water gun though. It has arm articulation which is something most water pistols don’t have.
