Ebay: Slade Super Agent by Shindana

$_12 (2)

The picture kind of sucks but these figures show so infrequently it’s news in these here parts. Slade is part of series of “Live Auctions” on Ebay (!) that include lots of Tomland Star Raiders and Lincoln Monsters. I’ve got no dog in this race but I’m pulling up my lawn chair to watch the fireworks.

You can see all the auctions here. Warning; there is a 20% premium on these for some reason, if you do bid, take that into consideration.

Mego: The Love Boat Playset

loveboat

Yup, it got made.

MegoMuseum posted this today on their twitter and well, it’s the same sort of Styrene masterpiece that the Enterprise Bridge was. It was released by Grand Toys in Canada mainly because they paid up front for their stuff, here is a boxed version (also from the MegoMuseum)

There are actually two Love Boat playsets and they look so alike that they cause confusion, this I believe is made by multiple toys and features smaller scale figures of the crew and passengers. From what I gather it’s hella rare too.

So the big question is, where the f*** are my Fantasy Island toys?

 

The Kubby Awards are in

 

The 2014 Mego Museum Kubby Awards for excellence in ReMego are up for viewing right now.  It shouldn’t come as a big surprise that Figures Toy Co and NECA pretty much stole the show this year but I do think some nice stuff got ignored.

I guess when you have a property as beloved as 1966 Batman and then you actually do a nice job of the figures, you really have lightning in a bottle. Congrats to the winners!

Ebay: Toy Island Monsters

$_57 (21)

 

Of course these show up now, during my “most brokest” moment this year (well, toy money broke, the lights are still on) and while it pains me to feature them, I ain’t gonna jump in this pool.

Released in 1991, these talking mego like figures are pretty damned tough to find and obviously appeal to monster geeks (of which I am one) This seller has the Werewolf and the Vampire MOC, which are the two I want out of the set. Best of luck to everyone on these.
