Not quite a city or town but a place with a post office and as Alpine was taken they came up with Twin Peaks. The odd thing being that there is only one peak. Anyway my speciality is toys of the 1960s although I collect much more. I have a particular weakness for taxidermy which includes everything from insects to bear skin rugs although I don't have a bear skin rug yet. fortapacheftr@charter.net (Read more)

  1. Oh yes this is a nice piece. Tonka in its prime before they started with the weird windshields.
  2. Quite the cold war coup. Seems you have a rather large cold war collection.
  3. Hi Nicefice long time no see.
  4. Thank you very much Newfld. Thank you very much Phil. Thank you very much purvisI am a good sort of odd. Thank you very much elanski. I have too. Thank you very much Toyrebel. I get my tax...
  5. Issettas are really cool looking. Nice toys.
  6. Thank you very much WesternPA-Collector. They call what we speak American English.
  7. WesternPA-Collector. Many fire fighters are killed in bull dozer rollovers in brush fires due to no safety cage.
  8. Thank you very much Broochman.
  9. Thank you very much Toyrebel. I counted 43 models that were king size. This does not count the Super Kings.
  10. Thank you very much Newfld. That is actually highly likely. Thank you very much Toyrebel. I had a Marx Cape Canaveral/Kennedy. I recall playing with the figures in the car and then nothing. No clue...
  11. Thank you very much kwqd. Had not known that.
  12. Engineers bayonet. Looks kind of new or in really great condition.
  13. Oriental markings. Don't think you will ever find out who made it.
  14. Awesome. Love that detailed engine.
  15. Plus you can get 100 year old pieces for $3.
  16. You have a good eye for the ones to rescue.
  17. Thank you very much Toyrebel. I know some people don't like sequels but if it I like it I want to see more. I think they waited 27 years to make this one which is a bit too long.
  18. Thank you very much Broochman.
  19. Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. Luckily I still have my trains although not the layout. It was held up in the garage with a pulley system so it could be raised and lowered.
  20. More people should collect Led Zeppelin. No offense to Beatles collectors.
  21. It is a masterpiece.
  22. Hi caperkid!
  23. Thank you very much Toyrebel. There are only 1 or 2 for sale on ebay so it isn't common. And thank you very much Thomas.
  24. Thank you very much Newfld.
  25. That is the 1962-1969 label. Cool truck.
  26. Light houses might house the key.
  27. Thank you very much Thomas. Not an actual hanging but close enough.
  28. Looks great. Perfect for Halloween.
  29. Thank you very much Watchsearcher.
  30. Looks like it has a brass cage. Super cool. Probably from around 1915.
  31. Thank you very much renedijkstra. I look forward to seeing what you find. Thank you very much Newfld and Happy Halloween!
  32. Happy Halloween Michael!
  33. Now that is a fine pair of cold war pieces. Considering that the AKM has been in production far longer than the AK47 was it is odd that the AK47 name stuck.
  34. I want one.
  35. Thank you very much Toyrebel. I'll dress as a person happy to be going home from work.
  36. Thank you very much Newfld. I am in the cusp of Scorpio. Thank you very much Scott. No one would not. Thank you very much Watchsearcher. Yes acrylic is what they are in not resin. Thank you v...

  39. Another great looking truck.
  40. Great set especially if complete. Are you going to set it up?
  41. Thank you everybody. Over 20 loves!
  42. Thank you very much Toyrebel. My pleasure to share it. Thank you very much fhrjr2. Looks like these are indeed boy scout flags in that case.
  43. Pretty cool. Needs to come with a 6 pack.
  44. Great looking rig.
  45. Yes Bill is a good guy.
  46. It has a complete interior which is pretty good.
  47. Thank you very much Toyrebel. Well put as to the effectiveness of the weight on the quality of the ride. Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. Yes indeed they did get longer and a bit shorter. I thin...
  48. PS don't change out that hook.
  49. Great song and perfect for Halloween.
  50. The machine gun and ammo box are GI Joe. Do not recognize the other pieces and am pretty sure they are not GI Joe.
