PlaidStallions 5 Awesome Things On eBay this Week
Diener Space Raiders Erasers (eBay Link)– Man, I loved stuff like this as a kid, it was like sneaking toys into school. The space stuff was so funky, even back then. It’s weird what makes you smile sometimes. Am I really contemplating buying old school supplies? Yes, yes I am.
Celestra- Queen of the Transforming Dolls by Placo Toys (ebay link)- A friend of mine turned me onto these for my upcoming book about Knock-Off action figures. It’s this weird mix of She-Ra and the Transformers. Were there kids wanting that? Some of these characters turn into cars. I don’t know why I just felt like I needed to tell others about this.
Hogan’s Heroes Rack Toy by Harmony (eBay Link)- If you follow this site or have read Rack Toys, you may have heard me sputter on about Harmony. Harmony is an abscure Rack Toy Manufacturer that made WEIRD STUFF and oddball licenses. Hogan’s Heroes is just one of those weird Harmony items, the show hadn’t been on the air for five years and well, why?
South Bend Star Trek Figure Painting Captain Kirk (eBay Link)- I love these things! I love Star Trek the Motion Picture merch! This thing is $12. I can’t believe this hasn’t been snapped up!
Vanity Fair Shoot Em Up Game- I remember I played with one of these at a kid named Jeff’s house. I was invited to his 8th birthday party. They had lost the gun, so you had to clap to make the guy fall down. Apparently, I offended super offended Jeff’s dad ( a town councilor!) at Mother’s Pizza because I did the “Swimmin’ with Bare Nekkid Wimmin” Popeye song. I was never invited to Jeff’s house again. Wow, this freaking thing has unlocked some deep-rooted issues.
Years later, I saw Jeff’s sister jump off the high school stage and punch a girl in the face. I immediately wondered if their dad would be offended by that. Does anybody read this?
