I predict in the next five minutes, a group of children will witness a disappointing magic show.

Star Wars 3-D Poster Art


As cool as the Star Wars set is, I am disappointed that the Travolta set doesn't also come with a mask.

Digger the dog


I think I knew more kids who had this guy than who didn't.
 I'm in the "didn't" pile.

Official Planet of the Apes Gyro Motorized Stunt Cycle



When it comes to Planet of the Apes merchandise, I honestly find myself drawn to stuff like this than anything else. Something about it just feels so....right.

Snoopy Sno-Cones


I could never talk my folks into such wonderful things such as this. Did you ever try for a snack maker/toy, if so which one?

The Electronic Hulk


If  I had a screen that readout my rage levels, it would include  Driving, Paying Taxes, Home Depot on a Saturday,  Waiting in long check out lines and then of course, Hulk Raging.

Terrific Slacks!



Your choice, non breathable pleather or the unwelcome, never ending warmth of Corduroy, you have five seconds to decide.

Canadian Superhero Pepsi Cups


For the last two decades I've been quietly collecting these promotional cups given away by Pepsi in the 1970s in Canada. Similar to the US cup promotions but a much smaller character choice, different design and made in Canada. (update I've just been told they were made available at the restaurants in Zeller's department stores)

My mantra on these was to never buy them online but find them in the wild at the many toy shows, antique malls and flea markets I regularly haunt. I think I've put together a complete set and thought it would be fun to showcase them. More after the jump.

"My dear, you look positively frozen, come by the fire and get warm immediately! Can I interest you in a snifter of warm Dr. Pepper?"

Steve Scout: Rescue at Eagle Creek


Being a toy collector, I am very drawn to "Catalog Exclusive" items even if i don't actually collect the line.

This Ward's exclusive set for Kenner's Steve Scout is new to me, anybody have one in the box? I'd be curious to see it.
