Topics I've Started

I put a new sump pump system in my basement the beginning of May. If you know what that means, it's dirty and messy. It requires digging trenches along the inside walls, laying pipe and cementing over. So I figured this would be a good time to expand my raygun display after the month cleanup. It required going from one case to three cases. I know it's not the ultimate individual wall system but it's what I can do. I now display about 75% of all my guns. The remaining ones are plastic and newer items I've acquired. The newer items are Star Trek, Star Wars, Dune and Mars Attacks among others.

The Mars Attacks guns are also on display. The poster freaked out my granddaughter.

I also relocated my Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon collection. The newer action figures including 70s-80s items are not displayed.

Many of you would consider this sacrilege but the electric vehicle age is here. Harley is testing its new electric bike soon. The appearance looks pretty cool. Harley builds their bikes here in York, PA.

A lot of you are familiar with the Renwal plastic car/boat which you flip to pick your choice. My wife's cousin had a lot of toys and other items which we're selling for them at the Gettysburg, PA outdoor street antique show we set up at twice a year. He had the boat/car which he gave me. What makes it unique are professionally hand painted enamed scenes on each side and the word Florida on the side of the boat. I believe they must have been made for the tourist market using the Renwal piece. They're beautifully done. Very cool.

it must be desperation, pie-in-the-sky or something I'm missing. I almost laughed out loud when I saw this. It has to rank up there all time between reality and overstated description. "beautiful toy in good condition"
