I’ve probably featured this toy before but who cares? It’s definitely one of my favourite Apes toys ever. I just love the little astronaut THIS MUCH.
The seller also has the classic Planet of the Apes Helicopter and a bunch of other stuff I need.
I have no more wall space in my adobe but if I did, this might make it. It’s a thing of American pop art beauty if you ask me and it would look cool when you’re high.
Pink Lady was a very popular pop group from Japan that got some of the weirdest bits of American television (pre-reality shows) called “Pink Lady and Jeff” which must be seen to be believed. My good friend and collaborator Corey is putting up pieces of his Pink Lady collection. I urge you to bookmark his page in the coming months.
The Matchbox Fighting Furies are an 8 Inch line of pirate figures I completely adore but don’t actively collect. The line never had much luck in the United States but it enjoyed a longer life in Europe where it got killer store displays like this.
Also did Pirate ships attack castles? I’m a fan of the era but missed this bit.
I am not a collector plate guy, I own one because it’s signed by Alex Ross, which was a big deal at the time for me. I actually have a mutual friend(s) now and we’ve done stuff together but, still cool. Otherwise, I really don’t have a collector plate “Trigger” until I realize there could be collector plates for properties I like ironically. I must check out my local Value Village and see if there is a “Walker: Texas Ranger” series, QVC had to have crapped those out in the late 1990s.
PS: I have never dug Chuck Norris in any fashion until I watched “Walker” which is a Hallmark movie with awful action sequences.
