Mail Call: Mego Micronauts Andromeda

   Mego Micronauts' Andromeda. Baron Karza's trusted mount. This actually came earlier in the week, but only now do I have some time to photograph and share it. More than the last two Micronauts I shared, this one has been on my want list since 1977. Apart from the box, Andromeda is complete and in… Continue reading Mail Call: Mego Micronauts Andromeda

Vintage Collection: Ultraman | ウルトラマン Family Poster Set (circa 1970’s)

   Back in the early 80’s, 1981-ish, I had a friend who let me borrow this awesome poster set while he borrowed a prized comic book of mine.

A Light Toy Haul from Late October

   I missed sharing these from a few weeks ago. I found them all at the same vendor, and paid a dollar each. I probably could have done without the Hulk from the 90's, he looks like a pencil topper. The female toy is a non-articulated hollow piece of plastic, but she looked interesting. The… Continue reading A Light Toy Haul from Late October

In that pile of items to flip, there are three sub-piles. Those sub-piles are "Sell online",… Continue reading Recent Sales at the Multiverse Market

There are a few issues with it, such as the steering wheel is wrong, the guns are pretty beat up and the roll bars are busted in two spots. No worries, I love it.    Clutch, on the other hand is in… Continue reading Mail Call: G.I. Joe V.A.M.P. (1982)

Q: The greatest Star Wars Knock-Off… EVER? A: Yes.

   This knock-off figure, Femme Stellarii by Suckadelic, is a beautiful example of a mashup. The wonderful packaging is Leia's head, on a Wilma Deering (Buck Rogers in the 25th Century) body, with legs from another source that I cannot identify yet. For the future, it's clearly a Micronaut with a silver metal-vacced Leia head.… Continue reading Q: The greatest Star Wars Knock-Off… EVER? A: Yes.
