Yeah, there's quite a few old Q Bert collectibles. These, the windup, the flying disk (all of which I have), punch balloons (which I have on the way), an *" plush and a 12" plush, a TV tray, card game, board game, garbage can, a plastic bank, the tabletop video game, a plastic puzzle, a few other things...

Looks like you're doing nicely on the Q Bert front, else. I remember seeing the figurines and collectibles in those old Christmas catalogs the major department stores sent out in the 80's. Congratulations on scoring so many excellent finds! :D

Thanks, I'm pretty psyched. I also have a bid on on a Q Bert bank. I'm going to be short on cash next month, so I'm not buying anything in March, probably (although I tell myself that alot...), But something like this dart set is a oncew in a decade find. I've never seen one before. Next Q Bert items I want are the TV Tray and Garbage can...


(I also won a lot of hand held pinball type games from the late 70's, early 80's. 8 of them, 4 are Tomy pocket games, 3 of which are still in the original packages, and 4 Epoch games, 3 of THOSE in the original package.)

Good luck with the other items! It is great to know that there are folks who truly enjoy collecting and feel genuine happiness whenever they find something cool. I'm glad that toys can still bring people such emotional fulfillment. :D

I love these old 80's arcade toys.
I still have my loose Q*Bert PVCs - I have 4 I think, and the 3 Donkey Kong ones you had got - I lost Mario though when he moved with my NES stuff.
We used have some Pac Man ones, like the angel, but of course we never kept them MOC - we played with them!

Congrats on the find and good luck on your quest!

Thanks. I have one of the Pac Man ones loose (same one, the angel), I plan on eventually having that whole collection carded. I really want the 2 Wind Up ghosts carded, since I have the Pac and Ms. Pac Man windups carded, and the loose ghosts.

By the way, if anyone else has of or knows of any cool 80's arcade game toys, post them here.
There's a really cool Dragons Lair set of rubber lizards on Alex Bickmores Toy Archive, MOC, but the links not working right now for some reason (can get into his site).

These are cool too (the Space Ace toys, scroll down):

I'd LOVE to have this, but it's out of my price range right now:

Of course, tomorrow is my birthday, so if anyone is feeling generous and wants to buy a present for a complete stranger, I'm fine with it :wink:

Happy birthday, btw! Hope you have a great day tomorrow and much luck in your toy hunts. :D

It's showing "forbidden" to me now too. Strange...Anyway, it's was a plush vintage Q Bert, still has the original paper tag. They want $149.99 OBO.

Oh, and here's the Dragons Lair (ultra rare) toys I was talking about:
