Those sidecars are still at retail here in the UK (scored one for under £10 just this week). They are part of a range called 'World Peacekeepers' and come with a checkpoint, base, two soldier figures and a trailbike.

Edit: this line of toys may also be known as Power Team Elite in other territories and contains a decent interpretation of a Willys Jeep for you military diorama fans.

Nope! You can't be a serious collector (when I say serious, I mean demented! ) can you if you don't know the answer?

Are you referring to the Walter Murphy disco version that was discussed in this very thread 2 months ago?

Happened upon an unbelievable find this week; a local-ish comic shop had a box of loose pegwarming figures in a box for two dollars apiece, and just as I was about to give up on all the jacket-less Mutts,and Ceremonial Belloqs, I saw a bare arm,with a textured, billowy sleeve poking out. Lo and behold,it was a loose SDCC "Lost Wave" Marion! Her static dress, (not as static as some would have you believe,but it does restrict movement a good bit) was slit completely up one side,baring her leg and white panties, (should be black,if you've watched Ms. Allen dangling in the Well of Souls from below
The white paint on the heel of her lone shoe was scraped,and flakes a bit to the touch.. but it's super-rare Marion! I can't believe my luck. I searched the box for other Con exclusives,but no dice,(would have loved a loose mechanic,but,alas). When I took Marion to the register,the cashier looked kind of appalled to discover she had made her way into that box (whose contents he had just run down about five minutes prior),but there wasn't anything he could do, (I don't do well with businesses calling foul on a mistake like that). Anyhow,I was able to hook myself up with her snake heap,and torch, (or maybe it's Sallah's-doesn't matter) for under fifteen dollars.

I'm considering making her a soft goods dress, as I've always thought Hasbro's (admittedly detailed) white shell made the figure too thick. I thought of using a Leia figure with a white dress,and hacking it off at the knees,since its already fitted to the waist. This way I keep full articulation,and she can sit, be carried by Indy, etc.

Finally got retail versions of the Temple of Doom wave from someone on RebelScum. Nice to have all the accessories. Those Asian sellers have good prices, but it was annoying that the accessories seemed so random. Not to mention funny problems like having two right hands.

Nice find - those IGT pieces are tough to locate. I have 6 of the headers (complete tops with electronics intact) plus I managed to get the wheel to the Last Crusade machine. Still have 3 more toppers to find to have them all.

I would like to see a picture of what you have, when you get time. I would love to find more parts, or a complete slot machine!!

Not so much a new acquisition as unearthing relics, but I finally got my room cleaned up to the point where I could dig my 6 4.5" Disney Park Exclusive figures out of where I stored them. I don't yet have room to display them out of the package but I have wall space to hang them up now. I haven't seen them in a few years so they feel a bit new to me.

I just got back from Tokyo DisneySea (incredible place, both the theme park and the country) and hoped to get some unique collectibles - particularly the bumper sticker which I have since lost due to selling my car when I was there 8 years ago.

Sadly no Temple of the Crystal Skull themed merchandise (sorry Les!) - in fact, only 3 collectibles (apart from the ride photo), a coffee mug, some Mickey/Indy cookies and this faux marble money bank which I couldn't pass up. Hadn't seen them before but I don't get out too much!

Never seen that before either.

The base could read:

Nice pick up....
I've got such a love hate relationship with these things. I've got a set that I splurged on a while back (the whole set, the EE exclusives, everything) and they are so unique and fun yet such a waste of resources and space.

Mine sit on top of a book case, MIB. I can't bring myself to get rid of them, yet I don't know what to do with the set. What're your plans for yours? Maybe you'll give me a fly idea for them..

Yeah, the top 4 packs with the O-Pee-Chee logo are Canadian. Considering the French, "Gomme Balloune Avec Cartes", they might even be specifically from Quebec (or its neighbouring provinces, Ontario & New Brunswick). Perhaps Les could elaborate whether packs from western Canada were bilingual or not?

Your "Starblazer" mag looks MINT compared to mine and it's nice to see the full "Dynamite" cover. I have the Read-Along "Temple of Doom" on vinyl, but's it's in storage so it's cool to see it again (you probably had it already, yes?). Great haul, all around!

Yes, they were.
