5 Awesome Things on eBay this week- October 22

Mr. Spock Towel (eBay Link)  This thing is so epic, I wish I could actually figure out a way to display vintage towels but I can’t and so it will not be mine to purchase. The Seller has a Logan’s Run towel as well.

5 Awesome Things on eBay: HR PufnStuff Pennent

Pufnstuf Felt Pennant 22 inches tall Sid & Marty Krofft (eBay Link) I am somewhat immune to PufnStuff merch, one of the few Krofft shows I can say that about but this thing is gorgeous looking and I love it.

5 Awesome Things on eBay- Plush Dracula

Plush Dracula from 1979 by Robin Krause (eBay Link) I’ve seen this plush Dracula in 79 catalogs and it’s just so cute and at the same time random. Plush Dracula figures are more or less commonplace now, especially at this time of year but this thing was a pioneer of sorts.

5 Awesome Things on eBay- Rapco Creature from the Black lagoon

Rapco Creature from the Black Lagoon Kit (eBay Link) This thing is the stuff dreams are made up, I put this set up there with the Aurora Model, the AHI figure and the Penn Plax Aquarium figurine.


5 Awesome Things on eBay this week: Holmes and Yo-Yo Halloween Costume

Holmes and Yo-Yo Halloween Costume (eBay Link) Folks, stuff like this is why I do 5 Awesome Things, a freaking Holmes and Yo-Yo Halloween costume. This fulfills every boy’s fantasy of growing up to be John Schuck! How did this happen? How many could have possibly sold? I need to know everything

about this.

    I Love it when they give the Enterprise rockets!

  • Neal J Patterson on October 22, 2021

    I would imagine Holmes and Yoyo was off the air by the time Halloween rolled around.

    • Mantooth on October 22, 2021

      It actually made it to December. 13 weeks was generally the rule back then.

  • Caffeinated Joe on October 24, 2021

    That is quite the find! That Dracula doll is awesome, too!
