Go on a fictional shopping spree at Hake’s current auction #209
to make your collection a little more amazing.
Oooh... check out this 1982 Indiana Jones action figure from Kenner! Sweet pete that's a fine looking item! I am a huge Indiana Jones fan, and would love to own this fine piece of nostalgic memorabilia.
I have never seen or read a single thing to do with Astro Boy. But I love the simplistic design and iconic look of the character, and I own more than a couple of toys based on the character already. This die-cast metal and plastic action figure from the 70's is AMAZING.
These two DC playsets come as a packaged deal. From 1966, these were Sears exclusive sets. With villains like The Key, Brainstorm, and Mouse Man facing off against icons like Batman and the Joker, who can go wrong? Look at those vehicles! Look at that robot!!!
This button is from 1966 and is a "satirical anti-war button". I would happily pin this into the ceiling of my car, with all my other buttons.
A "Life-sized" bust of Jack-Skellington? Yes please. The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my all-time favorite films, and Jack Skellington is a one of the essential Halloween Spirits in my mind.
Love the look and feel of these old Buck Rogers pop-up adventures. Look at the color! Look at the creatures! Awesome. Completely awesome. I have a reproduction greeting card of this cover somewhere in my collection, but would love to own the original pop-up book!
I don't know what it is about this Frank Buck's Adventurer's Club Black Leopard Head ring but I find it whimsical and bad-ass at the same time. WANT. I guess the fact that it's from an old radio show sponsored by Pepsodent should deter me... but it does not.
Actually, I think I want to start a collection of vintage, collectible, promotional rings. This Captain Marvel Rocket Raider Compass ring is pure sex. Look at it. I want to buy ten of these awesome old-style rings and wear them like the Mandarin.
Okay, so I won't dedicate ALL the rest of this post to just rings... but I had to squeeze this last one in. IT'S A SIREN!!! A Rocket Space Patrol Siren Ring to be exact.
This set of Nightmare Before Christmas: Lock, Shock, and Barrel masks are amazing, and would look stunning hanging on my wall.
This psychedelic eye-in-a-flower PEZ dispensor will top off my purchase, thank you very much. It is too twisted to pass up on, as I am a PEZ nut.
So... now let's see what the other members of the League got in their "Hake-Takes":
- Shezcrafti dreams of the crap she'd buy if she wasn't broke.
- Shawn Robare of Branded in the 80's wants to face the Infaceables...
- The Trash Man over at POP POP! It's Trash Culture wants a Mecha Gorilla that I actually considered putting on my list as well.
- G.I. Jigsaw makes some excellent choices in his first-ever League post! Welcome to the League!
Well, that's it for me... for now... but I'll be back very soon with some Genuine Geeky Goodwill Goodies! A whole flood of stuff should be on its way once I get motivated enough to post it.
Those DC play-sets totally eluded me when I was checking out the auctions. Otherwise, I would have added them just for the sake of "owning" a miniature, monochromatic version of Brain Storm. He's such a ridiculous character and man, he is just a delicious shade of green, isn't it?ReplyDelete
I don't understand why a MILLION repros of these haven't been made over the years. I don't even need these to be genuine articles. I would settle for a set made yesterday. Look at those beautiful toys!!!Delete
I have never even looked at Hake's before. I need to do it one day.ReplyDelete
Do it today! It's right there. Look upon the Hake's and DROOL.Delete
Heke's really has some great stuff! I could spend some serious cash there for sure.ReplyDelete
Oh yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Indeed. I concur. You and I are in agreement. We are in accord. We are aligned in our opinions. We are synchronous. Yes.Delete
You're not allowed to wear that many rings unless you're a rapper, or a high-ranking member of the mob.ReplyDelete
I'm covered then.Delete
Crap. I deleted what I just wrote. Let me do this again. lol I like the playsets. They look very cool and that robot is beyond interesting. I would have been scared of that thing as a kid.Delete
I also love what you do with buttons and pinning them on the ceiling of your car! I bet that looks so cool. Hope you are doing well!
I am doing well, thanks! The ceiling of my car, like m Geek Cave, is cluttered and crazy... and getting worse all the time. Thanks for checking out my fantasy shopping spree!Delete
