Who loves ya, baby? I really liked this film that he was in, with Tarkin and Dooku along for the ride!
I miss these so much
I miss Marathon bars.
I had that game!
Also, the first TV we had when I was grwoing up, not sure if this was the exact model, but it was the same brand and very similar:
I'm not sure it's exact, but my family had a tv much like that one. Ah the days before remote control:
"Montie, come in here a minute."--Dad
"Put that on channel 4."--Dad
*Puts it on channel 4* - Me
"Wait just a minute."-Dad seeing what's on.
"Ok, put it back on 2"--Dad
Yes! Kids: the original remote control.
I thought that Shatter Hand video game was actually called Shatner Land.
Welcome, to, Shatner, Land. Press, the, joy, stick, to, start, on, my, amazing, journey, KHHHHAAAAAAAAANNNNNNN
Frozen Marathon bars at the pool in summer!
So retro they are still the same!
It took a certain skill to tune in those UHF stations, as well adjust the vertical hold on these babies . . . .
Great posts. I grew up with those old Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) TV's, and despised them. Crummy picture and, as was mentioned, having to constantly adjust the "rabbit ears" was a huge hassle. We never had cable growing up, which had a lot to do with the poor TV picture quality.
It's probably one of the reasons I stopped watching TV completely in the mid 1990's, and only started up again when I got my DVD player in the early 2000's & was able to watch TV shows on DVD, without having to deal with cable or TV reception.
I had the Stretch Monster, it got a hole in it and the innards went solid.
That was the fate of mine as well.
Still have mine upstairs in the atic.
Saw it in Toys R Us the other day, thought I had gone through a time slip and ended up back in the 80's. Kinda scared for a second.
Wanted to buy it again.
Plus they had the original Turtles as well. If they re-release the blimp, it's mine.
On the subject of TV technology, I remember back when I was a kid when we had this:
It's a gadget that let us turn the rooftop TV antenna for better reception. All I knew was that you twisted the dial, it lit up, and made the coolest ka-CHUNG, ka-CHUNG, ka-CHUNG noise as the antenna rotated. Then the TV itself died, we didn't have the money for a new, full-sized one, so we resorted to a smaller one with rabbit ears.
I remember when my family had a satellite dish back in the '80s (one of those big ones), whenever you changed the channel, the dish outside would move to correspond to the respective satellite. It was usually noisy, especially at night, and when it got older and the grinding got louder and problematic.
I had the blimp....it kind of sucked, to be quite honest. Would never stay inflated. We took it back to the store thinking there was a hole in it, and got a new one.
That one fared little better. In the end I wound up throwing the blimp away and just keeping the glider portion of it.
I remember always wanting a Transformer, but my mom wouldn't let me get one for some reason.
I remember having lots of He-Man toys and Thundercats.
