On Ebay

Just posted a few items on ebay. A MISB Zoids, two JJ Arms figures (a page on him coming soon) some Mego-like War Heroes figures, and a bunch of the TH3 Project toys.

You can see all of them here.

New Toy Page: TH3 Project

black_genius1I had lunch with a very cool guy last week who was in town interviewing. We were chatting and it came up that I run this site. Which he was hugely surprised to learn, especially since he was a big fan of the site.

We talked some more and he (rightfully) chastised me about not updating the site a bit more often, especially since I am unemployed at the moment and have a lot of time on my hands.

So, in honor of the guy who bought me lunch because I forgot my wallet (seriously, how pathetic is that?) I am updating the site with a toy line most of you are probably unfamiliar with, the Italian Sci Fi series from Edison Giocattoli, TH3 Project. If you like 70’s Sci Fi, you’ll love these toys…

Up now is the overview page. This week I will add a page dedicated to two of the characters, Tharos and Thitan, two of the playsets, Video Control and Black Genius, and a page with some random, but cool, scans and pictures.

UPDATE: Added a Black Genius page.

Buck Rogers Communicators

Buck RogersThis was a very cool find that I had never seen before. A Buck Rogers belt with some walkie talkies, a wrist watch, and other accessories. Not to mention a big Twikki figure. Not 100% sure what he does.

Pair this up with the helmet accessory and you’re ready to take on Princess Ardalla!

Check out the Buck Rogers page for more.

Zeroid Alien

ZeroidThis was a new find for me. I am a big fan of Zeroids generally, and have several, but have never encountered a Zeroid Alien.

The Alien is unique among Zeroids. First, it explodes! Not literally of course, but in the manner of all wonderful 60s and 70s exploding toys – it falls apart. The head and several of the parts pop off when it reaches the end of a path that is programed into it.

Second, you can prorgram it! Sort of. When assembling it from the parts that will eventually blow off, you place a gear inside that determines the Zeroid’s course.

And lastly, the thing is a cyborg alien. All the other Zeroids are just straight up robots.

A very cool toy, and one of the nearest Zeroids I’ve seen.

Batman Executive Set

For the toy loving executive who has everything, today I bring you a Batman executive desk set to inspire envy around the board room.

Included is a Joker stapler, a Batman pencil sharpener, and a Batman calendar/card holder.

I am currently working out of my garage or I would have bought it to impress my office mates.

Invasion of Anzio Military Playset

Invasion of AnzioAs a kid, I loved playsets. Dinosaur ones. Western ones. Exploding bridges. Playsets were just super cool.

Military playsets were always my facorites though, because I could use my firecrackers from the 4th of July to “enhance” the experience. I didn’t have this playset but I am sure I would have loved it if I had. The set has 145 action filled parts and a cool looking set to act out all sorts of battles.

The dealer selling this particular toy only wanted $20 for it, and it was in awesome shape, but it was MASSIVE! So even at $20 they couldn’t sell it.

Still cool though.
