5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

Bandai Godzilla Model Kit- This kit was one of the first things I ever mail-ordered in the eighth grade when I went through my first of many “Godzilla phases” in my life, I haven’t seen this kit since 1984 and I’m sorely tempted.     Star Wars Utility Belts- These were a Canadian exclusive and […]

Slim Goodbody Healthy is Wealthy Record– Ok, I’ll admit, I thought Slim Goodbody was cool as a kid, I really liked Superheroes and it really bothers me that 40 years later I don’t have a Mego style action figure of Slim. That needs to change dammit, we need this hero now more than ever!   […]

Mattel Godzilla Board Game- For years I’ve searched for this at shows and at flea markets but when I do see it I’ve either spent too much or it’s broken. Anyhoo, I’d sure like to play it some day.   Speaking of Godzilla– This “Godzilla” Dangler by Ben Cooper perplexes me, this is obviously not […]

Love Boat Model Kit– Now this, this the only ship I want on my shelf. Mainly so I can hold it and sing that theme song. Also, it’s the easiest model in the world, it’s got one piece, even I can’t mess that up. Oh wait, there’s stickers, I’m screwed.   Buck Rogers Presto Magix […]

Dr. Zaius hand Puppet- The only way this could be made more adorable is if it had a voice box featuring Maurice Evans on helium. Incredible Hulk Sno-Stuff- Hulk merchandise is usually absurd and therefor my favourite, it is also compounded by the fact that he was pretty much “Garfield” in the late 1970s and […]

Toy-Ventures: My Mego Meet Haul

I’ve just returned from my favourite toy convention of all time, Mego Meet and please excuse the sleepy voice but I haven’t had much sleep!

Japanese Spider-Man doll by Popy- I have a deep affinity for the Japanese Spider-Man TV series and it’s merchandise also gets much sunshine from me. This toy is loaded with so many wonderful gimmicks (most of them having nothing to do with Spider-Man himself) that it’s a total win. Missiles coming out of hands? Why […]

Battle Star Galactica Wall Paper– One of the collections I wish I could start but probably never will is children’s licensed wall paper. A lot of it is gorgeous and I’d like to cover a room with it. This can be yours for $20. Monster Killer Laser Car- Remember that cool device that shot energy […]
