Arm's Master



I love Rack Toys, I love Space:1999 and of course, Knock Offs. So when all three get together and have a baby, it's a good time for me. Meet Arm's Master, a weirdly named series of toys that stole the molds from both AHI Space:1999 and Star Trek toys (seriously, check out this phaser!).

1976 Langley Star Trek Poster Catalog



Unlike today, Langely and Associates was one of those rare places in the mid 70s where you could buy fan merchandise, their catalog was loaded with everything from King Kong posters to a whole selection of 8" by 10" stills from "The Prisoner".

However, the big thing was a wonderful array of Star Trek merchandise, particularly an amazing amount of groovy posters. I've seen some of these in comic book ads but never in full glorious colour, check em out after the jump!

Nope, it's just Jaime's work, a school that seems to be located at the airport and judging by the chalkboard, she's blown her cover.....
