Yeah it was the only thing I purchased. Normally I would've bought a ton of stuff, but I'm running out of space at my current place and have a lot o' things stored away in boxes. So until I get some more space, I'm trying to exercise restraint by only purchasing the things I reeeeally wanna get... like the lamp.

Yep, they were all reasonably priced between 10 and 20 bux as I recall. They were loose figures for the most part, but they were complete with all their weapons & armor and sometimes even their mini-comics - which definitely isn't the norm when buying figures out of the box at places like this. Was nice to see a vendor who actually kept all those things together. I've seen a ton of Trap Jaw figures where his arm weapons were missing. What fun is that?
Talent, vigor, drive...

"Some kind of futuristic remote-controlled speed boat that wasn't very speedy on concrete."

I actually had that when I was younger. Some Tyco R/C vehicle that was able to go on land, water, and television, all without any scene transitions. Unfortunately, in my naive mind, I simply HAD to get it, only to learn that it takes five hours of charging to use it for 20 minutes, it really sucks in the water, and the concrete just really does a number on its...wheels? What do you call those things anyway? Corkscrews?

Would you call me a dork if I said this picture reminds me of Hank Hanegraaff?

I'm sure there's a legitimate reason to own a room's worth of Nazi memorabilia, but I've never met anybody who did who wasn't a giant creepo.

That creature cast did look vaguely familiar. I'd almost say it reminded me of Alien (the shape of the head) or the zombies from "I Am Legend" (the clay skin). Hmm...

I think every flea market has the bizarre nazi fanatic. I never see anyone buy anything from them, so they must be there to fulfill some sort of national quota.

Flea Markets contain both comedy gold and actual gold. I need to check if mine has some cool stuff.

Nudie and his mandolin - Nudie suits were/are the apex in country music stage wear. Nudie created those rhinestone masterpiece jackets and sometimes pants that guys like Porter Wagoner and Little Jimmy Dickens wore on stage at the Opry. Elvis' jumpsuits? Nudie did 'em. Even retro cool guys like Dwight Yoakam and Brad Paisley wear them still. Nudie Cohn is a legend.
