    Default Let's Reminisce

    I just thought of this after sjdrewk and I were reminiscing about those little football helmets we used to get out of gumball machines when we were kids.

    When you were a kid, what kind of things did you get for presents or have your parents buy because you just had to have it. (i.e. those 25 cent helmets outta gumball machines) Heck...you don't even have to go back to childhood. It can be anything at any time...in the past.

    Talk to me.

    There are so many, Shay, lets start with two that immediately pop into my mind. One was the Christmas when I got my first TCR race track(Total Control Racing). Remember those all of you old farts that are as old as I am? loll
    Here is a pic of something similar:


    I was waiting forever , bugging my dad for it for a year and when I finally got one, I went nuts and did the I won't ask for anything else in my life speech! LOL

    The other one was also a Xmas gift. For all of you that remember the Shogun Warriors(Yeah, the Godfather of all the Robot craze that you see now. For all that think the Transformers started it all? THink again. Shogun Warriors are the reason why Transformers are here) it was the xmas that I got a 2 ft tall Mazinga! **** YEAH! I was on cloud ****ing 9! I was shooting those finger missiles and probably lost mot of them before nightfall!LOL

    I always wanted Ghostbuster **** when I was a kid, any and everything to do with them
    The "Proton Pack" set was the ****! Actually, I think I still have mine in the attic someplace.

    Holy ****! Shogun Warriors! I had one of those. I also had the Godzilla one. The one that shot the saw blade things out of it's wrist.

    Do you remeber the 'Crash Up Derby' cars? You'd put that plastic sawtooth strip in the hole and pull it out to rev up the wheels. Then you'd hit walls or other cars and the damage would show.

    Yeah,maybe reminiscing isn't one of my better points.You kinda tend to get a tad bitter when you get ****ed by your folks most of your life and then they don't even bother ever acknowledging that their grandkids exist.


    Anyway,sorry for the hijack,Shay.Carry on.
