wow! cool watch! my brother worked on the ewok film. I am scared to know what you keep in your closet ;)
I did have a full Freddy Kruger mask in there, and two Star Wars toy guns.
They're packed safely for the move. :D
Was the Genesis Lemieux puck a mail-in offer? That's thing's great, I've never seen one before.
The game was rather awesome . . . it played pretty well, if only for its strange side-to-side play, which wasn't as great of a setup as EA Sports NHL '9x of those days . . . I loved the goal-animation, and the fighting went in with close-up shots where you could get down-n-dirty in style.
The Genesis Lemieux puck, since it was so long ago, I am not sure if it was a mail-in offer. I believe that my folks and I went to a mall store and they had them for sale in a 'special edition' set, which was probably just a box with the puck and the game in it.
those pucks are the bomb.
Soviet hockey produced some of the best NHL players of the last 13-15 years.
I think I probably had all those minus the hockey pucks.
Everyone did, seemingly.
We were more of a country with a mass-market approach back then. The networks had all the shows, and cable TV was still in its early years.
There's a bunch of sports cards I'm leaving at my mom's house in the basement. That's a case in point right there . . . there's like 50 different sets from 10 different companies at any given time. There are even E-cards (which are literally never touched by the purchaser and are treated like stocks). Back then, it was 25-50 cents through most of the 1980s for a wax pack of anything.
Today, sports cards aren't surprising if they are 3 dollars a pack for the same, usually less, amount of cards.
I know its the same with comics. Thats why I don't collect anymore.
For real, no joke on those comics . . . I can't tell the difference anymore with regular comic prices . . . sometimes they want like 20 bucks for one comic . . . and it won't be the only installment.
There's all kinds of fun in getting about 20-30 comics at once, since they used to be like a buck back then . . . for the holidays, I could get a bunch, and it wouldn't break me as a kid.
Asking a 10 year old with no money of his/her own for such outrageous prices is ridiculous. We're pricing ourselves out of the market with regards to children, even in necessity costs.
Bags of diapers are super-expensive. The USA is implying we shouldn't reproduce, obviously. :D
