Astro Train

Another toy show find. This Astro Train set covers air, land and sea and is a combination of steel and plastic. It was in remarkably good shape – even the box!   
 

Sinking of the Titanic Board Game

I love board games, and there were some really inventive ones back in the 60’s and 70’s, although a lot of crappy clone games with a license slapped on (amazing how that habit keeps getting repeated, no?) But a game about the sinking of the Titanic…that one seems a bit wrong to me. 

  

Wiggly Weirdies

From the same genre as Thing Maker codes Wiggly Weirdies, Hasbro’s entry into the make-you-own toy category. I like how they took it one step further with the whole mad scientist lab as a backdrop.   

Goober and the Ghost Chasers

Somehow I had managed to completely forget about this cartoon series. Not quite Scooby-Doo, but still awesome spooky fun.  

Spider-Man Knock Off

I have an enduring love of all things bootleg and knock-off. I found this Mego-like Super Powers Spider-Man figure at a toy show. I love how the characters in the background don’t have their logos on the uniforms.  

Mystic Skull

A board game with a hanging voodoo doll and the mysterious moving skull. What could be better? I love the box and board art for this game.
