Found this on eBay and thought it was worth sharing with everyone else.

Some info from the seller of the object:

xtremely rare item---possibly the only toy licensed for this movie aside from the Marx playsets ; first one I have seen in 25 years of dealing character toys !

UNUSED old store stock but the helmet is made out of a thick plastic material similar to halloween masks so it's VERY fragile and brittle; has 3 cracks/breaks on visor that have been repaired from the reverse with clear thick tape so it displays ok; box has some archival book support tape repairs (white tape) on the inside of the top in several places; box displays fine but rates technically very good due to tape repairs; DO NOT attempt to move the helmet parts if you buy this---it WILL break the helmet


He's asking 499 dollars for it. I have no idea if it's worth that much, but it's a very cool collectible IMO.

Very nice.... and tempting as collectibles. But I wonder what have these to do with Halloween? What is so ghostly about them?

Halloween costumes aren't always scary ones, it's perfectly normal to dress up as different things than monsters etc.

This is still available and he's now only asking 135 dollars for it, which I think is very reasonable. I'm tempted to buy it, but have a lot of other stuff to buy in the near future... like diapers.

Buy it and keep it as a future gift for your son, when he will be of age.

If I'd buy it, he would get it first when I pass away :lol:
