Let’s Boogie Iron-On (eBay Link)– I sincere remember this from an ad in old Gold key comics, I’ve never seen it up close before. To me, it’s an artist’s depiction of Cher being asked out by Ray Jay Johnson. GLJ Incredible Hulk Chair (eBay link) == I have a mild obsession […]
Space Ace Rack Toy (eBay Link) – I remember waiting in a long line to play “Dragon’s Lair” at an arcade at the CNE one summer. I put in a dollar(!) and died immediately. So I’ve never played Space Ace. Obviously, these games were the future, but this system was problematic for me at least. […]
Remco Lost in Space Helmet (eBay Link) — Before AHI took them over, REMCO were the absolute kings of licensed label slapping. This helmet is every bit as goofy as the Star Trek one, trouble is, it did look like a prop from Lost in Space. Knock-Off Spock Ears (eBay Link)— Oh Mr. Martian looks […]
Larami was well known for some of my favourite Rack Toy output in the 1970s and 80s.

Mystery Hulk Figure- This thing isn’t a bootleg as it’s marked Marvel and honestly, my best guess is it came from something like a Mold-A-Rama type machine. Anyone know what this is? It’s bugging me. Golodarak Cosmic Station – Goldorak or Grendizer as it’s known in Japan got a toy line in France […]
Buck Rogers Shrinky Dinks– I’ll admit, I still giggle at the name “Shrinky Dinks” and always will, I’m an eight-year-old with a mortgage. TRON Beach Towel- I’m not even that big of a fan of TRON and I want this, it’s that good. Life Like Dangling Hong Kong Spider– I’m positive this came in […]

I went to one of these as a kid (at my local Woolco) and my mum exposed all the film. This lead me with an obsession to finding another kid who has photos of this event and to the creation of my next book “Mall of Justice”. If you have photos of an event like […]
