    I want everything on that page!

    I did win the Corgi Superman supermobile rocketship on Ebay. In the packaging and everything!

    There is not nearly enough UFO merchandise out there. And as for Space: 1999 merchandiese, there is not nearly enough in my house.

    I had the Enterprise, but me and my dad used to visit Toys By Roy in Albuquerque's Winrock Mall and we'd both stare longingly into the glass case full of Dinky Toys, coveting the UFO stuff. At that point, I didn't understand that dad dug the show for the purple-haired moonbase chicks…

    Fiona- Well said, I totally agree.

    Scott- That's kind of what got me to notice it.
