Release the birthday Kraken!

Christopher Elam of the great blog OWARI submitted this great bit of 1981, this being his ninth birthday he has received the Mattel Kraken. Being of a similiar age, I wax fondly at those blockbusters that diverted our attention from Star Wars, albeit briefly...

That one was the holy grail of toys for me as a kid. That one toy I wanted SOOO bad but never got. My mom would just get randomly stubborn with certain toys.

As a sucker for both toys and classic mythology (even at 9!), Clash of the Titans was a movie that I ate up. I was sorely disappointed there weren't more toys.

Thanks for the kind words!
