Remco Batman- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Remco Batman- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Remco Batman Trik Trak- Remco made some pretty obscure toys, and Trik-Trak is one. Trik-Trak is a road race/obstacle set (battery operated) featuring a Batmobile, and it’s got some gorgeous Batman artwork all through it. Also, that’s the 1966 Batmobile which was the “go-to” in merchandising until Lawyers ruined it for a couple of decades. 

Remco Monsterizer- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Remco Monsterizer- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Remco Monsterizer Another gem from Remco, this time it’s the Universal Monsters brand. The Monsterizer really doesn’t do anything, it just lights up and glows in the dark but it totally looks like a Kenneth Strickfaden built device and that’s good enough for me. 

Incredible Hulk Cap Gun- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Incredible Hulk Cap Gun- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Incredible Hulk Cap Gun- There is no end of stupid 70s Marvel comics merch and behold exhibit A. We all know the Hulk is a crack shot and master assassin. I do give Gordy Toys props for adding that gun into the card artwork, looks so natural. 

Bootleg Wonder Woman on a Motorcycle- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Bootleg Wonder Woman on a Motorcycle- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Knock Off Wonder Woman on a Motorcycle– Look out Jon and Ponch, there’s a new sheriff in town! I can’t tell you how much I love this thing, it’s just so silly. The only way I could love it more is if she was wearing the motorcycle suit that confirmed my heterosexuality in 1979.

Kojak Playset- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Kojak Playset- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Sears exclusive Kojak Playset– I did a video on Kojak toys this week and well, I’d really like to own this nonsense. It has everything, Kojak, a weird-looking perp (called “the Adversary”) and a squad room. Oh, the adventures I could have…

    The Hulk is a crack shot and master assassin and apparently Spider-Man produces his own brand of ammos XDXDXD
    Kudos for the motorcycle suit.

    No kidding about the Trick Track art, they’ve got The Shade and Dr. Light as villains, my 13 year old mind would have been blown!

    I love that Kojak set. The Adversary could pull triple duty as 78 era General Zod or as Dr. Who villain, The Master.
    The Hulk pistol is wonderfully ridiculous.
    The Monsterizer is awesome by default.

    At first glance I thought the Kojak figure (plus hat) was a figure of Jeff Bezos in his big penis rocket blast off gear!
