Terror Dolls & More

The dolls are scary (as most dolls are), I'm not even going to guess at who came up with that keyring idea, I was shot with A BB once by a neighbor who didn't mean for the gun to go off, and all I've seen for the past 20 years are Ms. Pac-Mans, fer cry-eye. (I did play a Pac-Man once where the yellow gobbler in question had Popeye's head, for a reason I never learned. Likely a Rumsfeld mind-control device. Well, back then, it would have been Haig.) So there you have it, another round of long overdue comic book ads.

That doll pisses me off. I have rubber wonderskin too, but you don't hear me bragging about it...

Be the first! (too late).

Man, there's some twisted stuff there.

I recall the ad for the bb-gun. I wanted one but never ordered it, for some reason.

The thing that I ordered from an ad in comic books that hooked me were "real flying model rockets". The company that got me started was Centuri. They're gone now, absorbed by their competitor, Estes. I'll never forget unwrapping that first set...the launch pad was a block of pinewood on which you screwed down a limp pad of asbestos. Yep. Asbestos.
