The Santa copter is great, I'm all about any toy that advertises "whirling blade". Thanks for all the pics, Rog!

85 bucks for those Garbage Pail Kids? They looked pretty beat up in the pic.

When I collected the day my mom seemed to think they were going to have future worth like baseball cards used to. By the time series 12 and on were coming out I saw the writing on the wall (even though I probably didn't know what the term market saturation meant yet) and stopped believing she would be right. Maybe that guy never learned what market saturation meant.

The Master System isn't worth $90 dollars on any planet. I'm sorry, but the system just wasn't that good. Nor the Turbografx, to be honest.

You are correct sir.

I recentaly got a Dreamcast with two controllers,, a vmu, a handful of games and the original box for 25 and that was the best console sega ever produced!

Pretty much any console made from 1985 onwards is pretty worthless... they just made too many.

Holy crap was that a Flip Wilson doll? They made Flip Wilson dolls? I know who Flip Wilson is?

Robot Cosmic Raider Force needs to have a cross-over with Titanic-Bot and Space Knight.

Those Alien photo cards from Topps look sweet! If indeed that's what's in there...

I really wish I had the flip wilson doll. I have no idea why. when friends would come over I'd jam him in their faces and make him talk like geraldine. I'm weird.

85 bucks is just a sad offer for garbage pail kids. no one will pay that. at least I'd hope not.

A-bomb - "Whirling blade" is how they should promote the next Friday the 13th film. "Voorhees and his whirling blade of death are back for blood!"

Pentegarn - Yeah, the Garbage Pail Kids were pretty beat up and they weren't even from one of the earlier series, so definitely not worth the price. Some people will just stick a price tag on something based on what they feel it's probably worth (in their heart) rather than actually taking the time to look up the value online. Sometimes you can get a steal that way, but most of the time, you just laugh at the outrageous price tag.

Shadowdancer21b - I have a soft spot for the Sega Master System. It was such an underdog and completely overshadowed by the NES, but damn if it didn't look cool, and I loved those 3D glasses. But yeah, there's no way in hell I was gonna pay that much for it.

HowardC - Indeed! Flip Wilson is immortal in puppet form.

Jaimas - A battle between those three mighty forces would surely be a sign of the coming apocalypse.

RoG: But what if they were to unite their powers against a common foe - say SECRET GHOSTDOM and/or DEATH'S HEAD TERROR?

I think we'd have a recipe for awesome right there.

Master systems go for less than $50 at used game stores where I live (in Canada, so our stuff is still more expensive than yours, despite the dollar being pretty equal)

I'm COMPLETELY jealous of all the pins - especially the one that says Cat Power. WANT (I LOVE absurd pins/buttons)

& Tits & Clits - I would have bought it in an instant. I love the old 60s underground comix

If memory serves, I think it was selling for roughly $60. Not sure if it was actually worth that much though.

God, I would love to find a good flea market but I tend not to go outside if I can avoid it. *sigh* I miss California...

I'll play your game:

I've got to go with "Haunted House Football"

(Pump fake to the goblin, and then run right through the ghosts - they're terrible linebackers.)

Am I the only one who's disturbed by the pantsless doll that looks to have it's hands tied behind it's back and it's face pummeled back on page 1?

two Sega Master Systems for $90 Bucks with the 3D Glasses? It's a shame i don't live in California otherwise i would've bought them in a heartbeat, despite having an SMS Model 1 which has the 3D adapter, but not the glasses (besides, you gotta have a couple of spares just in case).
