Toy Sunday: Star Wars Coin-Op game

One of the best stand up video game units ever made. The Star Wars game was a vector (line) drawn game. The unit came in 2 flavors. The traditional stand up and the more emersive version where you sit in an enclosure with speakers around you.

Finding one of these games with working controllers can be difficult. In their years of service they took some pounding while avoiding the AT-ATs.

Toy Sunday: Rubick’s Cube

Remember the Rubick’s Cube. Now, do you remember how to solve it?

Personally, I ended up destroying a number of these things by trying to move the stickers with one and taking it apart for another. Never did solve the stupid thing.

Toy Sunday: Stretch Armstrong

Stretch Armstrong was a great stretchable toy to get out all of your childhood aggression. His only problem was if he got cut and the goo came out. See and read about our blonde hero.

You can also pick up a new(ish) Hulk Hogan version for that double nostalgia.
