5 Spooky Things on eBay this week
King Kong Socks (eBay Link)- I think the 70s Kong remake isn’t as memorable as a film as it is a poster. That thing is iconic!
JAWS Collegeville Halloween Costume (eBay Link) I think Collegeville sold a bajillion of these, I vividly remember seeing a slew of those while trick or treating.
Destination Inner Space Super 8 Movie (eBay Link)– Destination Inner Space seemed to play on Buffalo 29 every other weekend, alternating with “Castle of Evil”, when I was a kid. It’s got a cool, memorable monster, some terrible model effects and well that’s about it.
MPC Mummy Machine I’m not big on car models or cars in general but this thing is killer. I wish it were a real vehicle.
Wind up Creature from the Black Lagoon I remember when these came out, I never understood why they weren’t more popular. I’d fill a house with tin robot toys if I didn’t have 50 other obsessions. At 75 this thing is a freaking bargain, seller has a Mummy too.
