    This one is up there with some of my most unusual charity shop finds, ever. I found two Frisbee's in bags, one with extras and one without. The extras are a set of stickers, a puzzle and large pin badge. Both Frisbee's are good quality and printed really nicely. Got both for £1.50 :thumbsup:

    From Wiki:
    Force Five was an American adaptation of five different anime television series. In the United States, this series was primarily shown only in New England, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, though it did make brief appearances in other markets, such as Texas and Northern California on KICU-TV 36. It was also shown in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on CFMT channel 47 and in Asia on Star Plus during the 1990s. It was produced by Jim Terry and his company American Way, and it consisted of five imported Japanese giant robot serials (originally produced in the mid-1970s by Toei Animation) in response to the popularity of the Shogun Warriors toy collection. Mattel was one of the sponsors of the series.

    In an anthology style, the five shows were broadcast simultaneously with one episode of each serial assigned a specific weekday. Additionally, all of the shows were edited into two-hour movies and marketed on video tape by Family Home Entertainment. In the UK, Krypton Force released several of these programmes but under different series titles.

    Force Five series
    Force Five consisted of the following five series:
    Force Five: Gaiking (26 episodes), adaptation of Divine Demon-Dragon Gaiking (44 episodes)
    Force Five: Dangard Ace (26 episodes), adaptation of Planetary Robot Danguard Ace (56 episodes)[1]
    Force Five: Starvengers (26 episodes), adaptation of Getter Robo G (39 episodes)
    Force Five: Grandizer (26 episodes), adaptation of UFO Robot Grendizer (74 episodes)
    Force Five: Spaceketeers (26 episodes), adaptation of Sci-Fi West Saga Starzinger (73 episodes)

    A random keshi find - Super7 He-man GID. No Battle Cat, but for 10p he's pretty sweet.

    Tamiya model kit 1985. I found this one in a charity shop for £2. Its obviously been in a drawer until recently because its in mint condition. I don't see this sort of Tamiya model very often, i usually see military sets of WW2 stuff. Coincidently, this is the only bike i ever did a 'ton-up' on. My mate gave me a lift to a festival back in the day on the back of a Virago, and to say i was terrified when we hit around 116mph on the motorway is an understatement. It was extreme brown trousers time!

    That is a thing of beauty. How do you get around the chrome engine parts? Are they pre-chromed?

    Yeah, the chrome parts are all on one strip of that plastic chrome stuff. No, cracks or crazing. The thing is totally mint, one of those rarer charity shop finds, and it was in a shop where i hadnt found anything in ages!

    I visited a retro arcade last week (played mainly Robotron) and found this weirdo in a junk shop around the corner for a few quid. Excellent day out.

    MOTU KO 'Baltard'.

    Its surprising sometimes how quick you can find a toy on google, just from the manufacturers name.
    This is apparently 'Jester Colt' from the toy line 'Invizimals'. 10p in a charity shop.

    It only took me about four years to find the last turtle from this set. Found him in a bag full of toy soldiers, random M.U.S.C.L.E figures and a vintage Murdock from the A-Team :thumbsup:
