My big brother and I got to talking about toys we remember, and he mentioned one in particular that 1) he can't remember the exact name of, and 2) he'd like to find one to buy.

This would have been mid to late 1960s, possibly early 1970s. He says it was very similar to a Light Bright, and was apparently made by the same people; the name may have been Future Bright or City Bright.

He says it had a base very much like a Light Bright, with the holes where you'd put the pegs. The base on this would have been fully horizontal; instead of pegs, he said there were plastic rods of varying lengths and colors that you could put into the holes, and then there were saucer-shaped things that would be put on top of the rods, to resemble a futuristic, "Jetsons"-like city. When the light was turned on, the city would light up.

Does anybody here remember that? Thanks in advance for any help!

One last-minute effort before Christmas! I have a bunch of vintage geek toys and gadgets (1946 radio, TSR games, Magnavox Odyssey 100, Mattel Dungeons and Dragons electronic game, Mattel Hotline railroad signal tower, etc) up for auction. Please take a peek!

On to the auctions!

Quick question.
Is a first generation complete Soundwave still in the box worth $150? or am I wasting my time?

i'm just wondering if this is a skipper doll ? i know it's from the 60's, because the case it and a bunch of other random barbies i found that belonged to my mom says 1968 i think and then the other assorted items in the box say anywhere from 1964-1969. this is the doll that is in the best condition. it has realistic eyelashes, and the only problems are some random black smudges on it. so i'm wondering if anyone knows what exactly it's called and how much it would be worth..? (i'm guess not a lot but still it's always nice to know)

sorry for the bad pictures, my digital camera isn't hooking up properly so i had to deal with my sidekick photos.

I got these adorable Sekiguchi dolls today when I went secondhand doll shopping today.
I wanted to find out more info on them but everytime I look up Sekiguchi there is only Monchichi info.

Does anyone have/know any info on my cute little girls? One of them has Sekiguchi stamped on the bottom.
Here's a picture of them :)

Really Rare Star Wars Episode 1 Item (Qui Gon) [18 Dec 2004|10:12am]
I just wanted to post to let everyone know about this auction.

I don't know how many of these there are out there. It is an Episode 1 (Star Wars) Qui-Gon Jinn (Jedi Master) but he has a clean shaven face. The figure looks like a very strange variant. I thought I'd give the heads up to the auction
