Ideal Dr Evil Sanctuary Captain Action- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this weel

Captain Action Dr. Evil Sanctuary- (eBay Link)


I don’t actively collect Captain Action, although I have in the past. I’ve got no real connection to it other than seeing a comic ad for it as a child in a back issue and wanting it. This set is the stuff of legend in the line. It’s tough as nails and well, beautiful. I’d own one if they weren’t so rare.

Dick Tracy rack toy- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Dick Tracy Fire Extinguisher by Imperial Toys (eBay Link)

This one made me laugh, a bizarre bit of Dick Tracy Rack Toy merch. It seemed that everyone thought Dick Tracy would be as big as Batman, which didn’t get the merch it should have at the time. Not enough kids cared (I loved the little watch!) and the stuff just sat and sat. I remember visiting a “Zellers” in the mid-1990s, and they still had stacks of unsold cars.  I bet if I travelled around my town and check out some variety stores, I may be able to find some Dick Tracy merch.

Kenner Bionic Tattoos- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week.

I wish I had these as a kid, sure they only last an afternoon, but what an afternoon!

Not gonna lie, I’d wear these now. I do actively buy this stuff 

Big Jim Hot Wheels- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Hot Wheels Big Jim’s P.A.C.k car (eBay Link)

My friend Jason pointed this out to me, I’d heard rumour of this car but never sought it out. Yup, it’s a Hot Wheel with a Big Jim P.A.C.K logo on and of course, it’s a redline and therefor coveted by HW collectors. I bought one, so I guess that makes me a Hotwheel collector. *DEEP SIGH*

    Back in my teens I had a brilliant idea: Adhesive sheets printed with doors, windows, signs, etc. scaled to Mega figures. Make any box, dresser, wall, or flat surface into a large-scale playset. Never got as far as a prototype, but the bionic stickers are a definite step in the same direction. Did anyone take the logical next step?
