Toy Hunt! A Big Find and some Antique Store Craziness

Stuff I Bought

First up, the big find. So when I was at the antiques store I spotted this Star Wars 1982 Kenner Micro Collection Millennium Falcon for 25 bucks. I looked up Kenner Micro Collection Millennium Falcons and eBay said they were 25 bucks (ish), so since it was cool looking and a great price I bit and got it.

Well when I got home I double checked eBay because while this Falcon has most of it’s pieces, it’s missing the landing ramp and I want to get a spare one if possible. Well low and behold it turns out that this Falcon is worth more than the one I looked up. The one I saw the price for was a small die cast one. This is a much larger play set type thing.

M Falcon Micro Collection

Looks like this thing is in the hundreds range and not in the 25 buck range. Score! Okay enough bragging.

Toy-Hunt_Star-Wars_MicroCollection_TIE-Fighter

My girlfriend bought me this TIE Fighter that had a TIE pilot in it. It’s rad. It’s only missing it’s stickers from the wings, which I was able to order some repro ones on eBay. They’re on their way, so hopefully they’re good.

I picked this up at a flea market. It wasn’t “new and unopened” but rather opened and assembled, but still in really great shape. I have a bit of an emotional connection to the Skyhawk. I remember my mom buying me one, then bringing it home, then getting into a wrestling match with my sister and accidentally crushing it on the same day that I got it. So now I own like 4 of these things, though this is the first boxed one that I’ve gotten.

Other Stuff I Saw

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_x-wing-microcollection_kenner

The AT-ST and X-Wing I left behind and I really regret not getting the X-Wing now. This antique store is too far away for me to make a quick trip back. I’ll have to cross my fingers and hope it’s still there when I pass by again. Sigh.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_Kenner-star-wars-figures

This antique store had some Star Wars figures that were in pretty great condition. I picked up the Gonk for my lady, cuz the ladies love dat Gonk.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds-see-throug-phone

This is one of the most 90s phones ever. I had a version of this phone. I love clear cased electronics. I wish they’d go back to making stuff like this.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds-rattlor-moc

I had already spent too much to think about being tempted by this guy, but as far as carded Masters of the Universe figures go, he’s a pretty solid choice in my book.

Toy-Hunt-antique-store-finds_NES-with-games

This was a nice collection of NES games, a NES system, and a copy of Nintendo Power. However, I wasn’t biting at 200 bucks.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_tupperware_toys

I didn’t realize that Tupperware tried to pass off miniature versions of it’s stuff as toys. That is one boring as crap packaging.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_toby-robot

Toby here appears friendly, but that sword tells me a different story.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_super-smurf-riding-toy

I feel like this Smurf ride on toy may have twisted some kids into being complete weirdos.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_hannah-montana

This signed Hanna Montana poster/cd thing sure was tempting, but ultimately I had to pass.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_jedi-braid_hasbro-toy

I forgot that the “Jedi Braid” toy from Phantom Menace existed. This is prehaps the worst Star Wars toy ever put out by Hasbro.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_superboy-board-game

I really dig this Superboy board game art. I love that Krypto makes an appearance. I find it interesting that Superboy was popular enough to get his own board game when he wasn’t in anything outside of the comics.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_big-bird-lunch-box

It’s kind of shocking to see a lunchbox with it’s tags still attached, especially in that good of condition. If this would have been a Star Wars, G.I. Joe, or Transformers lunch box I’d have been all over it.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_mork-from-ork-radio

I feel like Mork and Mindy more than likely has reached total cultural irrelevance by now, right?

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_nightmareonelmstreet_freddy_toy

Nightmare on Elm Street has a surprisingly large amount of kid friendly toys.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_Boy-George

Every dad in the 80s, “More like Girl George, right?”

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_Skipper-and-Giligan

This Skipper from Gilligan’s Island toy has reached peak uncanny valley and it horrifies me.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_girls-toys

That Popeye managed to sneak onto this “girl’s toys” shelf…

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_Player-M&M

Describe yourself using only M&M cartoon characters.

Toy-Hunt_antique-store-finds_milkshake_machine

Seriously, if we had room in our kitchen I would have totally purchased this 3 milkshake at a time milkshake machine. It’s a work of pure art.

  • Envious of your flea market selection, nice find on the MM Falcon! Just got rid of my MM Death Star which I am starting regret.

  • Cool and Collected

    Wow, that place had the goods! Wish we had stores like that around here. I love that Superbly boardgame! And nice pickup with that Skyhawk — also one of my favorites.
