5 Awesome Things on eBay this week


Star Trek: The Motion Picture Belt Buckle (eBay Link)

This belt buckle is almost as big as the ones in the movie; they were “Graceland” big. What makes me laugh is, did anyone walk out of that movie with a desire to copy that dress sense?

As a person actively searching for some weird licensed merch from my childhood, I thought I would pass this along. I guess to a lesser degree, if you went to Lake Chippewa as a kid, go nuts?


Spook Chasers Sungold - 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Spook Chasers Action Figures (eBay Link)

They aren’t scared of no Specters! Spook Chasers are another comedy bootleg series by a company called Sungold, known for…stealing mostly. The Spook Chasers are pretty lame swipes at the Ghostbusters by Kenner and, as a result, are super rare.  I couldn’t even track down a set for Knock-Offs. Now I use this auction as a reference as I’m not up on the value.
