ROM from France- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Meccano ROM from France (eBay Link)

International versions of ROM: Space Knight are super fun, and I’m not sure I’d ever seen this one before.  As cool as this is, I still think my favourite ROM is when he joined the Action Man team. 

Spectreman Panini stickers - 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Spectreman Pannini stickers (eBay Link)

Wow, I loved Panninni albums as a kid, I bought them for shows I hadn’t even seen! Mix that with the glory that is the original Spectreman tv series and wow, I want to get these very badly.


Electric Company Costume Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman Halloween Costume (eBay Link)

Despite his presence in the pop culture hemisphere for five decades, there are few Morgan Freeman-based costumes. However, two of his Electric Company characters did get costumes in the mid-1970s. So many missed opportunities, though, the president from “Deep Impact,” the narrator, Batman’s Q and of course, the guy who says “VISA” weird. The possibilities are ENDLESS!

Hasbro Horror House- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Horror House Paint by Numbers set (eBay link)

As a monster collector, I try to keep it 70s and 80s for my own nostalgic journey but also, that 60s stuff is too pricey for me. Exhibit A is above, this thing is gorgeous but unless I find a money tree, it will never be mine. I’m cool with that, I like visiting bakeries, but I won’t eat the donuts. 

Slime with Worms - 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week


A can of Slime with Worms (eBay Link)

I never got an actual can of Slime as a kid (way too much shag in the house). I had to settle for vending machine slime, which was ok. Flash forward 20 years, and my daughter learns how to make it in Girl Guides. Thank Bob, her room has a hardwood floor.

    Thank Bob? Do you mean Jr “Bob” Dobbs? I sure hope so…

    I still have my ROM: Space Knight, and it still works as it did on Christmas 1979, I’d like to get another can of Slime like the one I had many years ago, but not at those astronomical prices.
