*Shuffles through Photobucket* Uhhh...Micro Machines?
HAHA...so you know how I was bitching about the snow in the last post? WELL IT SLAPPED MY FACE. It slapped it hard, like an angry lover. Last Monday was officially Arctic Hell, and I was also super sick that day, with wonderful jets of unmentionable foulness streaming from both ends. Needless to say: the 2002 Grayskull pics are gona take even longer, so....here's some crap I don't have to do any work for.
I don't remember why I took these pics or where they were originally posted. They're in the photobucket though, so I'm sure I did something! Something magical, I bet. Like a...swan...dive. Into a pool of orange Shasta. I dunno.
You ever have that bloated feeling in your stomach for so long that, later on, you know it's gona be farts like...all the time? All farts. That's me right now. Good god.
Anyway, what else?
Wow, what were they thinking back then? Chrome neon truck. That better be some badass oil in there. I think I got that American RV in a Dairy Queen. Also: Monster Trucks! The gold one was my favorite as a kid, but I think I like the red flame monster van more nowadays.
Uuuhhh...stomach...stop it. Stop it man. Come on. I just want to want food again.
Whoa, speaking of food! Whassat, a car eating a tiny car? Or is that its baby? Or both? Anyway, I loved these things. Micro-Micro Machines, I guess. This is the kinda stuff I miss in a world that no longer sells Micro Machines. This wacky crap right here. There are plenty of tiny car toylines out there now, but none of 'em are doing....this. Whatever this majesty is.
And since we're on the subject of things that open: that giant white and blue plane opened up and you could put cars inside. I think it's from McDonalds? Anyone know?
Oh, and planes! I like the planes, but somehow I didn't have many. You'd think I would have had more. I'm pretty sure I had more military stuff, but that junk gets outside more than the others, and outside + tiny toys = ???
AAWWW YEEESSS. STEERR TREEEK. Star. Star Trek. Next Generation was a big thing when I was kid, so I tried to get a hold of a lot of these. Many of them are from a big 'ol set I got for my birthday one year.
Those were some of my favorites. They weren't always in scale with each other, but that didn't stop my friends and I from staging big 'ol battles. These things are still big on my favorites list. The Star Trek ones. Good stuff!
...here's some Z-Bots, I guess. I'm assuming I took this pic to just show some of my favorites, 'cause I got way more than this. The blue one who looks scuffed to hell was my Lucky Z-Bot - I carried him around in my pocket all the time back in elementary school and told myself that he warded off homework. And he did! Every time I didn't have homework, he worked.
Well done, you magnificent bastard.
But seriously, I'll have to do a separate post on these guys sometime 'cause they ROCK.
Alright, that's it! I uh...I liked Micro Machines, and I won't lie: I'd still be buying these if they were still around. The unique stuff, anyway. And especially Z-Bots!
I'ma get back to work on those 2002 Grayskull pics now. Maybe take some more pepto. Among other drugs. Take it easy, yo.
