Me and my lady had some time to spare, so we decided to stop at an antique mall. Sometimes I’m lucky to find something pop culture related from my lifetime. Most of the time I see over priced items from the 80s and almost never do I find anything worthwhile to resell. Still, we have a fun time checking out all stuff we find.
Here we have Archie Bunker’s grandson from All in the Family. Such a huge stretch. They didn’t even have to pay to get a likeness. Just grab some crappy doll and throw it in a box with a picture from the show.
Update: Somehow I completely missed that Archie Bunker’s grandson is anatomically correct. That makes perfect sense that the commie liberals that ran All in the Family would try to run their penis loving agenda down our throats.
These types of robots were a popular gift in the 1980s. If I’m not crazy, I remember one of them shot steam out of his mouth? Either way, I think that “Magic Mike 2” is going to be a much different sequel than anyone could have imagined.
These Easter rabbits are freaky as shit. Antique stores are a great place to find some powerful nightmare fuel.
The standard scary ass ventriloquist doll. I’d never be able to sleep if this was in my place.
I’ve never seen a Stay Puft Marshmellow Man so small!
The romanticizing of the long haul trucker and the fad of CB radio love was certainly bizarre, if not dangerous for the children involved…
Man, it has been a long time since I lost saw Harry and the Hendersons. I loved that movie. And I sort of liked the television show (yep, it made it to TV in syndication in the 90s.) I was completely unaware that there was any merch from the franchise(?) until I saw this bad boy at the antique mall.
Most of the time I see comics they’re really awful. Like Malibu titles going for five bucks a pop. I managed to find some older Avengers issues for slightly less than a buck a piece and they’re in great shape. This was one of my two purchases.
My second purhase was this Gojulas Giga. I was a fan of the Zord’s toys when they were big in the early 2000s, but I didn’t buy many of them. I have no idea why. I guess I was busy being angsty and stupid. Anyway, this Gojulas Giga was in a box that had seen a lot better days, however the parts were still in sealed baggies. I’m not sure if it was all there, though it looked like it was. The asking price was $8.50 and I’ve seen them go online for 30 to 50, so if it indeed has all the parts, it was a great deal.
