5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

DFC the Tower of the Night Playset (eBay Link) — There is nothing I don’t like about this. I mean I had a set like this and wouldn’t need another but looking at that box art just makes want to buy it. It’s like a VHS movie with no pictures on the back of the […]

Street Hawk Wallet by Fleetwood Toys (eBay link) – Oh man, I wish I had one of these in college and also the balls to use it ironically.    Mayor McCheese Certificate (eBay Link) — Sure, it’s $30 for a piece of paper but it insures “FUN AND HAPPINESS EVERY DAY!” For that, I’d even […]

Super Fly promo balloon (eBay Link) – A lot of 70s so called “Blaxploitation” movies were built on their soundtracks, which would be released prior to the movie.

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen one before in real life. I even contemplated bidding, which doesn’t make much sense for me personally, but this thing has […]

Captain Action Dr. Evil Sanctuary- (eBay Link) —   I don’t actively collect Captain Action, although I have in the past. I’ve got no real connection to it other than seeing a comic ad for it as a child in a back issue and wanting it. This set is the stuff of legend in the […]

Baskin Robbins Pink Bubblegum sign (eBay Link) – Talk about stumbling onto something. I found this looking for toy stuff, and it immediately transported me to my local Baskin and Robbins, which was luckily in the “bike ride” vicinity. I occasionally got this flavour (I was pretty committed to chocolate chip though), but it represents […]

Rod Hull Emu Game (eBay Link) — My wife has a childhood phobia over Rod Hull’s Emu. I always liked his routine but I also see how it would creep out a kid. I plan to buy this game to hopefully have one of those “Maury Povich” moments where I chase her around with it.  […]
