5 (okay 6) Awesome things on eBay this week

Mattel Space:1999 Deluxe Set: As much as i bag on the action figures, the Mattel Moonbase Alpha Playset is remarkable and i love this giftset featuring all the characters. I’ve almost bit a few times and eventually, I probably will.


Superhero Sponges- This is totally in conjunction with the Spider-Man soap from last week, please let Shazam clean you.

 Japanese Spider-Man Action Figure-This is one of the coolest action figures in the world. I’ve owned this one or two times, I wish I could buy this now so I could do a Toy-Ventures episode on it.

Greek Love Boat Game- I have no words. Be the only person on your block with this! OPA!

Donny and Marie Electric Guitar Set- ARE YOU READY TO ROCK? NO? Well, this is the toy for you.


My toy soulmate David Lockwood found this  awesomeness and well, I NEEEEED IT:

JUDO BOY PUZZLE FROM ITALY- I have no idea what this is but it’s homage to all thing 70s Kung Fu is beckoning to me.


PlaidStallions Toy-Ventures Magazine #2 is now available and it’s been called “not only an entertaining read, but it’s also an impeccable work of reference” by PopCult.

    If it’s from Italy and is called “Judo Boy”, then I think to be able to shed some light on the puzzle.

    Judo Boy is the italian title for an old anime from 1969 called Kurenai Sanshiro. It arrived here in Italy in the 1980 during our roughly 15 years long “anime boom” started in the 1978.
    Sanshiro’s father was a grand master martial artist but one day he is ambushed and killed by a man: the only detail about this mysterious man known to Sanshiro is that he is missing an eye: the series is about Sanshiro travelling around the world in a quest to find the one-eyed man and avenge his father.
    That puzzle for what I can see was the typical unofficial cheap kind of product aimed to cash on the series popularity, but made with nothing even vaguely resembling the genuine Judo Boy other than the name (not the art style, not the likeness, not the clothes and not even the colors).

      Interesting, I’d never heard of Judo Boy before.
