Mystery Figure

A BEM reader emailed me about this figure asking if I knew what it was. Sadly, I’ve no idea so I’m posting here to see if any of you can identify it.  Everything but the shorts are metal, no markings. 


Creature Features

The board game of Hollywood movie monsters! I’ve never had the pleasure of playing it, but I love the idea of any game involving classic monsters. 

Batman Clock

The Blue and Gray is my favorite era of Batman and Robin. This particular clock is an 80s era item, but it still delivers that 70s vibe.  

Astro Train

Another toy show find. This Astro Train set covers air, land and sea and is a combination of steel and plastic. It was in remarkably good shape – even the box!   

Sinking of the Titanic Board Game

I love board games, and there were some really inventive ones back in the 60’s and 70’s, although a lot of crappy clone games with a license slapped on (amazing how that habit keeps getting repeated, no?) But a game about the sinking of the Titanic…that one seems a bit wrong to me.
