Super People 78


When Star Wars figures came out, all my favourites from previous Christmases got sent to the Black and White pages often discounted. 

I didn't mind at the time but now it kind of makes me a little sad, save for the awesome team up of Steve Austin and Spider-Man, that just rules.

The Playdate


When your mum would have an old friend over and she'd have a kid your age, usually a nightmare, that you'd be forced to play with? 

This kid is giving me that vibe, I'm a little scared of him.  Don't touch my stuff!

Armatron



Armatron was the last toy I ever got for Christmas and man, was I excited. I spent months thinking about how cool it would be to own a robot arm.

I remember getting it and it did everything it said but I guess I had built it up so much in my mind it could never live up to my mental model. I did get pretty good at it though.

Mom's strike back


I'd like to go back in time and change my mum's subscription from "Canadian Living" to "Woman's Day", it seems like the "Cool mom" magazine.

1981 Lone Ranger Catalog by Gabriel Toys





The Lone Ranger was riding high in 1981 thanks to a popular Saturday morning Cartoon series (by my favourite company Filmation) and the promise of a big budget film (that didn't work out so good).

So, Gabriel Toys blasted the toy shelves with two distinct toy lines, a relaunch of their popular 1970s 9" Toy line and a 3 3/4" line so you could have Tonto get a sasparilla in the Creature Cantina!

Space:1999 The Alien


There is something so charming about a company shoving an old toy into a new license's box and hoping nobody would notice.
