“Hover over the secret lake in the Air-Sea Rescue Copter.” - 20 April, 2016 - 05:05
If we look closely at the 1976 Fisher-Price Adventure People advertisement that’s posted at 2 Warps to Neptune we can see that the marketing of the line involved more than just “here are some toys representing real world things.” Story and (not shockingly) adventure appear in the advertisement, making this incredible ad far more fun than if all we saw...

“Get a Free Mask Now!” - 20 April, 2016 - 01:30
What I remember most about the Manhunter comic series of the eighties was that the main thrust seemed to be chasing down super-villains. I’ve not read these comics in many years (I think there’s a complete set around the house), but a quick search online led me to this excellent Tumblr post which has me now wanting to dig out...

If you’ve ever been a fan of Kenner’s Star Wars action figures and vehicles (find at*) then you’ve no doubt drooled over the TIE Fighter and X-Wing at some point.
