Spaceship Mobile- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Star Trek KO Spaceship Mobile (eBay Link)

Nothing like the 3 Nacelle Knock-Off Enterprise as room decor. I totally want this, but I’m tall and something of lummox so I would run into it, a great deal.


Space:1999 Walking Commander Koenig ( 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week)

Wind-Up Commander Koenig (eBay Link)

Space:1999 was one of the properties that got me into collecting, the other being Planet of the Apes. At one point in the 80s, this was my holy grail. I got over it, it’s actually not my thing at all but it’s super neat.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Gabe Kaplan saw zero point zero dollars from this.


Mayor McCheese Clock- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

I need this. It’s always Cheeseburger O’Clock in this household. 


Rug Hooked Popeye- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Popeye rug hooking (eBay Link) –

Wow, this sums up the late 70s for me, rug hooking or latch hooking for you puritans and Popeye. I was obsessed with that Robin Williams movie and I do not regret that. It’s a classic and if you disagree, I will see you at the bike racks at bell*


*Bike Rack’s offer is invalid if you are one of the Hadden brothers I went to school with. Also, what the hell? There were 11 of you and you were all 3 months apart. Also, I hate that your mother and my mother are still friends and that she’s super nice.
