More S.W.A.T!


Great that theme song ain't leaving my head anytime soon. Eventhough I'm not even sure I've ever seen an episode of this series, I will admit to thinking that playset of theirs is one of the coolest vinyl sets the 70s had to offer. I'm a sucker for anything that has those old giant reel to reel computers on it.

I had two or three of the characters and the S.W.A.T. Van, That was the coolest vehicle around, they often were saved by Mego Spidey!

I remember the show and the theme song, very cool! Don't remember if I ever had this, I'd have to say no ...

I never got to see S.W.A.T. and it tears me up inside.

I was in a band where we dressed up like bad robots and we custom made those reel to reel computers to house our amps.

You can see them here...

Coincidentally, we also did a live cover version of the S.W.A.T. theme. You can hear it on this movie trailer...

S.W.A.T. really needs the DVD treatment.

That jail cell doesn't hold enough people. Don't they realize it was the 70s?

When I was a kid I only had the Jim Street figure. Now I only need Luca. I really like the swivel biceps on the LJN T2 figures. What a great idea that was. I'm also a big fan of the show. Season One is on DVD and Season One & Two are on Hulu, so if you haven't seen the show, what are you waiting for? Let's roll!
