Found at the Flea Market(for the most part)

Recently, I had heard that there was an outdoor flea market, not far from where I live.  So I decided that I would go check it out.  From what I’ve been told, this thing has been there for years(May-October).  I can’t believe that I had never heard of this place before!

I found some cool things, but I have to make sure I get there earlier next time.

The highlights

Can you believe that a women let me take the 2 E.T. figures free of charge?!

I’m a sucker for older non-sports cards.  The WCW packs were 3 for $1, and the Batman ones were 2 for $1 .  I bought multiple packs because I want to actually open a couple(I’ll keep at least one of each, sealed)

But here was my favorite find of the day.

These were given away in Happy Meals back in 1991.  I was about 12 at the time, but even then, I knew how awesome these are!  The costumes snap off in 2 pieces, but why would you want them out of their costumes?  These were found in a 50 cents box, but sadly, the Daffy in a Batman-like suit, was missing(and that’s my favorite one!).

Just like yard sales, I’m sure all the really good stuff is to be had early in the day.  So, I already plan on getting up early the next time I go(hopefully soon).

I also picked these up, but not from the flea market.

League Assignment and Extras

For this week’s assignment, Brian asked…

Besides the Batmobile, what is the sweetest ride cruising the streets of pop culture?

There are so many great possibilities for this(the Tim Burton Batmobile is the best, in case you were wondering).  Before we get to the ride I would most like to get behind the wheel of, I’d like to show you guys my runner-up.

Pee wee’s bike just looks awesome!  I don’t care that it probably really slow and clumsy.  But theres so much awesome in this bike, that it doesn’t really matter.  But ther is one vehicle that would be really fun test drive.

(it’s the best shot I could find on Google)

The Thundertank was probably my favorite 80’s vehicle/accessory.  A real life version of this beast would be amazing!  This would make for the party wagon!  I remember my yonger brother and I having remote-controlled versions of the Thundertank, and even finding a Thundertank(as well as some Thundercats figures), on the curb headed for the trash, while we were on vacation in Ohio!  It’s a ride that I have always thought was co0l.

And speaking of Thundertanks…

This was the mystery item that I eluded to in my last post.  But I’ll go more into detail with the review I have planned for this.

I hit up a few thrift store in the last couple of days, and I ended up finding some pretty cool stuff.

I purchased all of the above games at a new local thrift shop for $1 each, with the exceotion of Toughguy Contest, which was 99 cents at Goodwill.  With the exception of Bubble Bobble, I didn’t have any of the other games in my collection(I’ll sell the extra Bubble Bobble to offset the cost of my hobbies 🙂 ).  I did pretty well with these, but they’ll be staying with me.

Both the Starfox 64 Player’s Guide and the “Coming out of Their Shells Tour” vhs were $1 each at the same thift shop.  These are 2 more items that are for the personal collection(nobody should want the TMNT tape, it’s horrible!).  These were some good finds on the first trip to the new shop, so I’ll stop by again sometime.

Check out some other sweet rides at Cavalcade of Awesome (I knew that would be your #1 pick Paxton!!)

You can read about lok’s pick over at That Figures.

Ashely from Life With Fandom had some really good picks.
