5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Baskin Robbins Pink Bubblegum sign

Baskin Robbins Pink Bubblegum sign (eBay Link) –

Talk about stumbling onto something. I found this looking for toy stuff, and it immediately transported me to my local Baskin and Robbins, which was luckily in the “bike ride” vicinity. I occasionally got this flavour (I was pretty committed to chocolate chip though), but it represents childhood and my abuse of the tasting spoon policy in general. The seller has a stack of these, and trust me, I want to paper my walls with them. The irony? Ice Cream causes me great pain.

Buck Rogers Knock Off Fighter

Bootleg Buck Rogers Star Fighter (eBay link)

Sometimes, a bootleg version is actually really well-made and cool. I present exhibit A, I’d love to see if this could house a figure. I may need it if that’s the case….

Glasslite CHiPs set (mego) 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Glasslite CHiPs set (eBay Link)

Okay, so this auction ended early, but I kept this in because, for the life of me, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one before. That’s saying a lot, I’ve obsessed over Mego for most of my life. So when I see something like this foreign wonder, I must salute it. It always makes me wonder, “What else haven’t I seen?”

Astro Apes Inflatables- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Astro Apes Inflatables (eBay Link)

Astro Apes are a ridiculous series of Mego Planet of the Apes Knock-Offs. These weird little inflatables are also part of the series, I don’t know what kids were supposed to do with them but by the same token, I would have bought these as a kid.

Comic Strip T Shirt- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week
Incredible Superhero shirt from the 70s (eBay Link)

    I have one of those unusual Astro-Apes inflatables, since finding the action figures is impossible. I have the Mego version of the CHiPs action figures. The only Glasslite toy I have is the CHiPs SuperMoto.
