Try saying that five times, yet another “Red Batman,” this is really common in bootlegs.

My love for Battle of the Planets remains strong and man alive; why did we not get these as kids? So perfect, so fun.


Doctor Who Tardis Tuner- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week


Doctor Who Tardis Tuner (eBay Link)

I remember seeing the ad for this in a Doctor Who magazine and really wanting one. It’s essentially a radio that lights up and makes blorps BUT IT HAS TOM BAKER ON THE BOX! Seriously, that’s some of the nicest packaging for Doctor Who merch, love it, want it. Can’t afford it.


REMCO Earth Quake Tower playset (eBay Link)


REMCO Earthquake Tower (eBay Link)

This is your chance if you ever wanted to reenact an Irwin Allen picture. This set even comes with a record of sounds to help you enact this disaster. The only thing it doesn’t come with is George Kennedy; you gotta get your own.


Star Trek Sweet Cigarettes - 5 Awesome eBay

UK Star Trek Sweet Cigarettes package (eBay Link)-

I’m pretty sure these all changed to “Candy Sticks” when I was a teenager. I was horribly addicted to the Popeye ones. 

There is something really charming about UK Star Trek merchandise of this era, I always love the artwork they created.
