5 Awesome Things on eBay this Week- October 15 2021

Diana from V PVC bootleg figure (eBay Link) These are Spanish figures as I recall and the closest thing we ever got to real V figures. As any reader of this blog knows I have a real Jane Badler thing, even in the weird PVC form and I hovered over this for a long, long time.

Conan Jointed Giant Figure (eBay Link) The jointed Giants by Our Way Studios remain something I wish I had as a kid. These foreign releases like Conan and there is even a Sam Jones Flash Gordon seem like they come from a different dimension.

Flash Gordon Pop Up Books (eBay link) GORDON’S ALIVE? AND HE’S POPPING UP? I didn’t know these were a thing, I love discovering new stuff.


Star Wars Rebel Mission to Ord Mantel record (eBay Link) I had this as a kid, it’s the connective tissue between Star Wars and Empire and it’s even mentioned in Empire. I adore this set and haven’t thought of it in ages, it left a mark on me and I view it as an old friend.

BEN COOPER 1981 SCARY & SPOOKY CREATURES (eBay Link) A carded set of rubber bugs by Ben Cooper, I couldn’t spend my grandmother’s money fast enough!
