I’m selling a Star Trek #24009 which the inner front cover states was printed in the Philippines. It also states that it was “co-published by South Pacific Publications Limited Hong Kong, Philippines and Rosnock Publications, Australia.”
Its front cover differs from that of the Australian version possibly published in 1972 and from the original Gold Key issue published in 1968. (Click on the pictures for more detail.)

I don’t usually buy sports cars but when I saw this 2015 series Lotus Esprit S1, I felt I had to get it. I had long admired the simple elegance of the Lotus Esprit‘s design. I wouldn’t mind actually owning one and driving it around. It was only later that I read the text on the card mentioning that it is the 1977 car from the James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me (where it changes into a submarine). There is a 2014 series Retro Entertainment (assortment E) version of it in submarine mode. I’ll buy it if it becomes available.

Somehow I doubt that Batman would put pinstripes on his Batmobiles. The one on the left is a 2014 series TV Series Batmobile; it is a pinstriped version of the TV Batmobile I blogged about earlier. The one on the right is a 2015 series Batmobile; it is a pinstriped version of the “1989” Batmobile I blogged about earlier.
The earliest known officially licensed 1963 Batmobile is being auctioned on December 6, 2014 by Heritage Auctions. They estimate it to sell for $180,000 or more. (I got the images from the Heritage Auctions website I linked to above.)
