5 Awesome Things on eBay this Week

The Hamburglar’s Autograph (eBay Link) — My friend Courtney sent me this, and well, I didn’t know this was a thing. Apparently, the actor who played the Hamburglar, the original “Nightmare Fuel” edition does signings? I can’t imagine anyone faking this. Now, I’m no fan of crowds, but I would go to any Con or […]

Space Flyman and Punchboy set (eBay Link) — This Dynamic Duo is one of the earliest pair of Knock-Off Action figures but probably the earliest Super Hero Knock-Offs as well. The backer card of course, is famous for how Space Flyman “beats off” his enemies and trust me, I lean on that comedy crutch a […]

Batman Letraset set (eBay Link) — Letraset is, to me, the superior version of Presto Magix; it’s just magical. My dream is to own someday or reproduce the Doctor Who set without the BBC hunting me down and killing me.   Evel Knievel Kid Cycle (eBay Link) — I wonder how many kids tried to […]

  Slam Bam Diesels (eBay Link)– I do not recall this toy line, which brilliantly merges Smash Up Derby with RC cars. I will, however, be stealing “Slam Bam Diesels” should I ever form a dad garage band.     Batman Stained Glass Kit (eBay Link) — I could do a “5 Awesome Batman crafts […]

Col Sanders Action Figure in car (eBay Link)-– This is from a larger playset, but if I saw this at an antique mall, it would HAVE to come home with me. Like the Hamburglar, the Col. rocks my world. Although I can’t remember the last time I ate there.      A big old bunch […]

Planet of the Apes Prison Wagon- (eBay Link)– I’ve probably featured this toy before but who cares? It’s definitely one of my favourite Apes toys ever. I just love the little astronaut THIS MUCH.  The seller also has the classic Planet of the Apes Helicopter and a bunch of other stuff I need. Iron Man […]

Larami Planet of the Apes Astro Ape Planes (eBay Link) – As lover of both Planet of the Apes and Rack Toys, this is very alluring. However it’s rarity and price tag make me realize all it is are some planes on a pretty card. It’s a conundrum that sounds weird to anybody who doesn’t […]

Ben Cooper Lost in Space Halloween Costume (eBay link) My buddy Matt sent me this earlier in the week, saying he was pretty tempted. I’m not sure what the greater appeal is for me, Lost in Space itself or that mid-century look.  HR Pufnstuff Witchie Poo Doll (eBay Link) – I don’t know what’s more […]

Bigfoot and Wildboy Puzzle (eBay Link) – I am very predilected with the Krofft shows; this one is one of their more bizarre concepts. I guess Bigfoot adopted a lost kid and now they stop alien invasions in the woods. Also Bigfoot is clearly meant to be Bionic. I can see why I dug it […]

5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Star Trek KO Spaceship Mobile (eBay Link) – Nothing like the 3 Nacelle Knock-Off Enterprise as room decor. I totally want this, but I’m tall and something of lummox so I would run into it, a great deal.   Wind-Up Commander Koenig (eBay Link) – Space:1999 was one of the properties that got me into […]
