5 Awesome Things on eBay this week – Electra Woman – Dinosaurs – Frankenstein
Frankenstein Bank (eBay Link)–
There isn’t anything I don’t love about this. The box alone hits every note in my monster kid heart.
Batman Thingmaker set (eBay Link) –
I am alas too young for the golden age of Thing-Makers, it was around but not like it’s hey-day. I’ve never seen this Batman set before and am in love with these card graphics.
ElectraWoman and DynaGirl (eBay Link) –
Krofft merchandise doesn’t happen often these days and we need more of it Bob-Dammit!
This is a fan made 3-d print model of the titular characters and the Electra-Car. I always wondered how many bugs they got in their teeth riding around with no wind screen. I was an odd kid.
Generic Superhero Rings (eBay Link) –
As bootlegs go, these are pretty funny. This is how the DC superheroes look when I don’t have my glasses on.
Dinosaur Rack Toy (eBay Link) –
I don’t know if I had these as a kid or what but they sure scream “Childhood” pretty loudly to me. That header card is pure gold.
5 Awesome Bonus:
Sewing Patterns for your MC Hammer dolls (eBay Link) –
Hard to believe the MC Hammer craze endured long enough to warrant something like this. I bet “right said Fred” is really envious.

5 Awesome Things on eBay this week
The ElectraWoman and DynaGirl car is available regularly on Shapeways
I had actually started working with the vendor to produce some of the custom Mego heads that I now make, and gave them a whole bunch of Electra Woman and Dyna Girl reference.
I found the results… not the quality I wanted… so I started working on my own and with my own “A-Team” to create better versions. Now I’ve got extremely close versions of EW &DG in Mego heads and a perfect replica of the ElectraComp sized for Mego as well! (Not to mention about 150 other heads and counting)…
