I picked up a few things. Not pictured are about 26 Archie digest which are books I hoard throughout the year because they always sell super-well for me at the outdoor show I do in late July. This year, I think I'll have a few hundred on hand and that should last me for the length of the 3 day show.
I also found a few of the Jakks TV games. Super Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and a Fantastic Four with the Things head on one corner and the 4 on the joystick. Also picked up a hood ornament of a soldier that looked too cool an oddity to leave behind so I picked that up as well.
An OPC Gretzky rookie card (real-deal) and the one piece I'm stoked about is the Miniature Voltron III. I've done some pre-lim research on this but just wondering if anyone here collects this sort of stuff. I have not seen a MIB example like this one before (instruction sheet, styrofoam, and window are all there, and still tape on one end). A bit of wear on the box, but this is clearly a never removed from box (NRFB) example.
I've seen very few examples offered online and they are usually at such a wide-range of prices, but I have never seen a Canadian example (french/english description on the box). This also has French and English stickers explaining what is included which might make it a transition piece, but I've never seen a Canadian example before so until I have one to compare, I'm not sure about the transition aspect. 43 Hanna Street, Toronto, which is the maker location for many of the great Kenner Canada GDE/SW toys:
Haha. This is what I love about collectibles. You see cards, I see toys.
Here's a smattering of the Die Cast cars I got with that He-Man collection. Late 70's and early 80's. Hots Wheels on the Left and Matchbox on the right with the A-Team in the middle. I was never big on cars as a kid but I buy them up when I can because they just fly off the shelves. I never really gave Matchbox a thought until I bought up this collection. Many of the examples found had hoods and doors that opened and they seemed to like to make construction and industrial type vehicles. I couldn't believe the two trucks pictured still had the two motorcycles in the back and I just love the camper and horse trailer. I liked these so much that I might consider collecting these.

A great opportunity arose earlier today so I jumped on it. I picked up Our Fighting Forces #1,2,3 and 4 today and finalized a deal for the rest of the books at a local flea market. I pick the rest of the books up tomorrow. They are:
G.I. Combat #74, 76, 77, 79, 80, 83, 86, 87 (2 copies), 88 (mostly greytone issues) Green Lantern #1 Our Army at War #52, 65 Sea Devils #4 Showcase #16, 17, 23, 27, 28, 29
The seller had most of the books graded in the 6.0-7.0 range but I think he was a little high on his grading. These are still all very nice mid-grade copies that are complete with nice white to off-white pages. He had the Showcase #23, 27 and 29 graded at VF (8.0) and they actually might be close to that. The seller assured me that none of the books had been restored in any way. I went through most of the books myself and verified that they were complete with no missing pages or cutouts and that everything was completely attached.
I'll be starting a sales thread in Gold/Silver/Bronze for all of the books later tonight. Send me a PM if you have interest in any particular book or books.

If you have a dream about out-posting me, you better wake up and apologize.

Put together this box of mostly Transformers today at a garage sale. Some have missing or broken pieces but for a quarter each I wasn't inspecting anything too close. I was basically just grabbing from miscellaneous boxes and making a full one for stuff I wanted. I am way too old and way to uneducated to even begin how to transform them or try to pretend I know who 99% of them are. Thankfully, there are ID sites for pretty much all toy lines now so it may be time consuming, but I'll find out all their names.

I also picked up these 1971-1972 Mego Spider-Man and Superman figures today. Anybody know what these are worth? Both say MCMLXXI (1971) on their backs but the Spidey says "Marvel 1972" on the back of his neck.
