Today is an epic day for Plaidstallions. I finally tracked down the film reel to a commercial that has haunted me since 1975 and I get to share it with all of you.
I remember it vividly, watching Space:1999 on my parent's black and white TV when this commercial aired. Already a fan of the Big Jim toy line, the concept of a villian (although he really isn't clearly defined as such) just captivated me. I needed this toy, I had to have it!
While I finally did get that Dr Steel, tracking down this ad makes me even happier. I'll be including it free with my DVD package going forward.
More Big Jim than you can handle!
