Now That’s MY Kinda Body Building!

March 1988

Visionaries #3

I’ve never really been into model building, but always thought it was kind of cool in theory. However, I get the feeling that it isn’t exactly the best way to pick up chicks…

Just look at how enthralled those girls are! That model-building boy is an absolute stud!

Build Your Own GoBots!

March 1985

G.I. Joe #33

I used to have GoBots as a kid (in fact, I still have those GoBots!) – they were cool because they were the same size as Hot Wheels, so you could play with them with all your other cars!

So when I first saw this ad, I initially thought it was for the standard GoBots toys, but apparently this is for models of the toys… kind of odd, but OK. It looks like they actually do transform, so I’m guessing the main difference is that you put these together yourself? Or maybe they’re more detailed than the regular toys? Not really sure on that.

No Match for These Cars!

Claw The Unconquered #5

It doesn’t get much more classic than toy cars, and Matchbox cars are some of the most classic ones out there!

These remind me of the ones I had as a kid (which are currently packed in the garage, for lack of a good place to display them). This ad kind of makes me want to get them out and play with them again!

Hopefully By “Hot” They Don’t Mean Stolen…

Deadpool #1

Welcome to post #3 in my Deadpool mini-marathon! The movie is only a couple days away!! Isn’t this the most exciting thing ever?!?!?

OK, I need to calm down. Anyway, here’s something else to get excited about – a contest where you can win remote control cars from Radio Shack!

And not only can you win the cars, you can also appear in your very own custom Marvel comic – The Adventures of Radio Kid! If that’s not excitement, I don’t know what is!

Enter now!!
