Random question vivid memories


I know the rocket fett was never released to the public and I know that my childhood storm shadow is complete, but I have very vivid memories that I had a fett that shot out a rocket and a SS that came with throwing stars.

So I'm curious if any one else has/had these same recollections as me? Do you have any other pieces in your collection that you remember having accessories that really didn't?

I don't recall ever thinking a figure had an accessory that they didn't, but I constantly mixed up all kinds of accessories among my figures so they always had jumbled up stuff.

Hi Ken,

Definitely used that various cocktail drink sticks as accessories back in the day. My eye would go right towards it if my parents ordered a drink at [sign in to see URL]!

Ha yup! Weren't they super brittle?

Kids these days would be too glued to their tablets to notice a little plastic sword 😂

Odd random memory/vivid memory. The other day, for whatever reason, shrinky dinks popped in my head. Only I couldn't remember what they were called or exactly what they were. I just remembered a toy that got hard w heat and the sound they made in your hand.

After some googling I completely remembered them. I almost want to get some to play with now! emoticon

Shrinky dinks were great! Our oven didn't have a window in it, which always bugged me as I wanted to watch them like the kids did in ghe commercials!

Totally remember shrinky dinks. Actually had some in my possession a few years back. Didn't have the heart to use them.

I remember the swords coming in hamburgers back in the day as well as drinks. The rivet broke many a GI Joe thumbs for me.

The plastic sword was a favorite to use with my gi Joe's. The handle was huge and it certainly wasn't very accurate scale wise.

 I always got them from luby's cafeteria which is a restraunt that my great aunt loved to frequent. They scewered the cheese stuffed jalapenos with these and I would never eat the jalapeno. My aunt never said a word though, bought them for me everytime we went.

Super Powers [sign in to see URL] up I never knew that the Joker's mallet fit on his head. I figured it out from starting my new collection and doing research. I really wish I would have tried putting it on his head as a kid.

Side note: I remember seeing the Super Powers commercials at my Grandmas house and not having a birthday or Christmas anytime soon. I wanted these figures so bad, I spent an afternoon drawing, coloring, cutting & tapings their uniforms onto my Mobile People. Man was I stoked when I finally got Batman & Robin!!
