    Plaid Stallions 5 Awesome things on Ebay this week

    The best part of the interwebs for me is window shopping (and watching those thermal camera fart videos- never not funny!), so justify my time wasting with this week's top five!



    Knock off Planet of the Apes mask from Japan- I know nothing of rubber masks except that i really like them and would love to have the funds/space to collect them. Stuff like this makes it crazy hard to resist it.


    More after the jump





    Muton Costume for Cyborg - If you're not familiar with Denys Fisher Cyborg toys, check out this, then come back and drool with me. I've attempted to collect these but I lose focus easy. You can fall in love with this line in our awesome Denys Fisher Cyborg gallery.



    Foreign Nicholas Hammond Spider-Man poster- I have had one of these hanging in my son's bedroom since he was born and wow it has paid off, that kid could spell "Pataki" before he was toilet trained!



    Mattel Sea Devils- After the Space Craze died, Mattel turned the Major Matt Mason line into scuba characters complete with underwater aliens and cool robot sharks. Even though this line came out when I still had an umbilicle cord, i am really drawn to it.




    And Finally....




    I found a copy of my book Rack Toys in a box recently, it's the last copy in the universe that i'll ever sell and I am auctioning it off. I plan to put all proceeds in my kid's college fund which is sort of the antithesis of this book. I'll sign it and include some goodies, maybe even a real life rack toy!

    Thanks for enabling! More goodies next week!

    I had no idea about the Denys Fisher Cyborg line! I knew about Henshin Cyborg, but not this! And I always wondered how Mattel got around using Sea Devils as a name for their scuba-centric toyline, since DC had characters with a similar theme years before!

    I doubt DC had the forsight to register the name for toys. That wouldn't happen now.

    I enjoy your lists, certainly some quirky items, I tell U one thing, I jumped on the Denys Fisher Cyborg stuff when I was working in the Uk, and practically have the whole lot now. Picked them all up in minty condition(loose) for some normal money. Actually picked my 6 cyborg up for around $60 the other day

    They are cool, I have several of them as well. Never did pick up the UFO/Cybo Invader... just couldn't find one cheap enough

    So Cyborg is sort of like 9 inch Micronauts then? Or am I oversimplifying? Looks pretty cool.

    Love the mask and the Sea Devils set...especially the Sea Devils. Thanks for sharing these.

    I’m ashamed to say that I have not purchased and read your Rack Toys book. I’ll check out the auction.

    Rampart, this is Squad 51. How do you read?

    Heh, I'm the same way. Several years back I started to put together a collection of these but bailed about half way through and sold them all. A great toy line but I just have enough on my plate as it is.

    That's basically it. Denys Fisher took the 9" Shonen Cyborg (loosely translated as "Kid Cyborg", think Action Boy in the Captain Action line) figures from Takara's 12" Henshin Cyborg line, and shrunk down some of the 12" Henshin figures and costumes to 9" scale.
