Thanks, went to eBay one day just to look at it turns out Time Warp comics up the 36 from me in Boulder was selling a copy for $4.50 and agreed to hold it at the store so I could pick it up without charging shipping. Fun story.

Sky Pirates Soundtrack
 
Last month for my birthday, I got the soundtrack for Sky Pirates
A movie set in August of 1945, Sky Pirates follows the misadventures of Australian Flight Lt Harris (played by John Hargreaves)
Words don’t really do the film justice. I used to rent it all the time at Blockbuster in the early 90’s. I just found it complete on YouTube the other day
Check it out

WOW, man, another "Sky Pirates" fan?!? :up:

Can't believe a soundtrack was released for such an obscure film. Is it on an Australian label? :confused:

I remember when the movie came out in '86 but never got around to seeing it at the cinema so I also ended up renting it often during the very late '80s & early '90s (as "Dakota Harris and the Sky Pirates")!!! Those VHS tapes of it were always poor prints with a cropped picture so I've been trying to find a decent copy for decades now. This will be my first time seeing it properly in full widescreen!!! Can't THANK YOU enough, Golddragon!!! :up: :hat:

Perhaps this conversation should be moved over here:
Sky Pirates(1986)

Thought I'd like to share some of my new acquisitions. I got a lot more Indy Pins since my last post:

Got the Reggie's Revenge glass from Jock Lindsey's Hanger Bar on my Christmas trip to my father-in-law's. Then he gave me the bar t-shirt for Christmas!

Hello guys,

I have a question regarding Indiana Jones action figures.
What is considered the best Indiana Jones figure available, regardless of the price.
I mean, which has the best likeness of Harrison Ford, the best details, the widest range of movement options, the best accessories, the most durable, and in general the most fun for people.

Years ago I bought the 7-inch one that was sold at Disney gift shops on Ebay but I understand that there are better figures than that one.

I have been looking at the Figma one but also at the Hot Toys version.

And on a side note, has anyone here seen the Indiana Jones micro action airplane (the German flying wing one) being sold online lately? This is another product that could originally only be bought at Disney theme park stores.

I just won the Raiders Indy Premium Format (exclusive) on eBay about 2 months ago. Definitely the crown jewel of my collection :D

Went to our local 2nd & Charles today and found issues 4, 5, 7, 8, and 14 of the original Marvel Indiana Jones comic run! Priced at 95 cents each with their 50% off sale I got them for 47 cents! Also found the Young Indy Lost Gold of Durango book for $1.35.

Indyologist 07-02-2018 10:42 PM

Arrgh! So f-----g jealous of you ALL! You and your lousy Indy stuff... dag. Wish I had me some. Had to pay 2 huge bills recently, tho. Crap. :whip: You guys have some nice s--t.

Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure
 
Picked this up a couple of months ago. Super fun and great call outs from the first three movies. It even came with some collectible toppers like the Sideshow Collectibles Ark of the Covenant movie prop.


JasonMa 07-10-2018 04:46 PM

That there is one of my grail items. Maybe someday.

Dr.Jonesy 07-14-2018 03:22 PM

Recently got my longtime most wanted Indy item - the 12 inch 1981 Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark doll by Kenner. I've wanted one of these since I was a kid.

He's in immaculate, untouched condition complete with the whip and the gun.

Paid $45 for him. The guy made me quite a nice deal. This might be the only Indy item I own.

I'm not a collector-type to say the least.

F-----G "A", MAN!! I HATE YOUR DAMN GUTS-- I'M SOOO JEALOUS! I remember playing this in the arcade!! The 80's... great times, dude, great times... how much did you pay for this, if I may ask?

Some of my recent acquisitions:



I've always wanted some Indy gear. I got a bunch of money for my birthday and ordered the Webley, belt, holster, whip, and authentic 1942 MK VII gas mask bag.

Congrats with your haul! However, with the way pinball is played, I hope you don't keep the props, esp. the Sideshow Ark on top like that!

Actually, I do keep them up there! The grail and stones have a little piece of velcro that keep them up there and the ark is plenty heavy to not go anywhere. They are really the ultimate toppers for that game.

Finally, the DVDs are back in print here, so little ol' me got on to order them. :D (Will post a pic of them and the books I got last year when they arrive.)

Sakis 10-08-2018 08:01 AM

Has anyone purchased a poster from MoviePosterShop? Are they any good?

Kladdagh 10-09-2018 04:51 AM

The pinball reminds me good memories !!!:whip:
