Flea Market Finds Dec 16h

As most collectors know finding a gem at a bargain is often a rarity. You can usually find something worth buying at most any flea market or antique show. But 99% of the time it's usually something you see often enough or it's priced cheap, etc. It's that 1% that keeps you going out on Sunday morning. This was one of those mornings...



The Mego "Batman Command Console",1977, price paid: $10

The box has some light wear, but it is mint and unopened


It's basically a big 'ole walkie-talkie. It's supposed to work with other consoles and walkie-talkies, taking incoming and making outgoing calls and Morse code messages. I'm sure it was a flawless system; perfect for the Dark Knight's weekend telemarketing job.

It's a beautiful piece that I...wait...incoming message!

King Tut and Egghead have stolen priceless Faberge Eggs from the Egyptian Antiquities Wing of the Gotham Museum.

TO THE BAT-POLES, OLD CHUM!

PS Also found these cool Superman Movie collectibles; a movie treasury book and a 12 print art portfolio, $5 for the pair. Sweet.
