5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

troll village- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Marx Troll Village (eBay Link)

I honestly don’t know if I’ve ever seen this before but it’s so adorable. Marx playsets are always a good idea in my book but this one is fun and weird. Also, I totally missed the Troll fad as a kid, I was aware of it and it’s reprisal, but I was never the right age.


Land of the Lost- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Land of the Lost Star Spotter (eBay Link)

Larami Toys is an interesting company, they made spectacular cards for their toys. However, once you take that toy off that gorgeous card there is nothing to delineate that it’s a Land of the Lost item. No sticker on that bad boy, it’s essentially a cheap telescope toy. I know that’s the point but it pays to advertise. I think Hasbro bought Larami like 20 years ago so I have no idea who I’m talking to…

Belt Buckle- 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Lost World Belt Buckle (eBay Link)

Forgive me if I’m wrong but I think this is for the 1960 adaptation of the Doyle Novel by Irwin Allen. I stayed up as a kid until 2 am to watch this, only to fall asleep mid-way, I’ve never seen it since but Allen used the footage a lot on shows “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea”. I was never a fan of people slapping fins on actual lizards and pretending their dinosaurs. I’m a stop motion or “man in suit” kinda man.


PPC Marvel Super Heroes- 5 Awesome Things the week

PPC Activated Superheroes (eBay Link)

These Marvel Superheroes figures happened in that murky time between Mego and Secret Wars where they didn’t have an action figure license. I remember seeing the Heroes World ad for these and getting so excited, only to discover they were little more than glorified army men. Now, I think they’re super cool and they are HELLA rare.


Space Precinct

Big Lot of Gerry Anderson Space Precinct Figures (eBay Link)

Gerry Anderson’s Space Precinct doesn’t get the love it’s older siblings Space:1999 and UFO do. I’ll admit, even I couldn’t get into it. The toys however are all kinds of fun, they were kind of retro for the mid 1990s and wow, they are “Dick Tracy” cheap to own now. This whole set boils down to like $6 a figure.
