80s and early 90s thread
Gone, but not forgotten edition 2.0
Daily bugle playset, don't remember how long the goop lasted lol
Did anyone else have these jelly bags you'd eventually end up masturbating with?
No idea what the story behind these fucks was, but I still have a whole bucket of them somewhere.
If you play the modern iterations of Fallout without going back to the originals you are doing yourself a disservice
PLEASE.. did anyone play with these..? they were my all time fav toy. i had such a collection. I would have wars all day.
I still have my Super Soaker 50. It's a little rickety now, but it still works as good as ever. My 6 year old son plays with it in the bathtub. Can't believe I'm seeing this on 4chan. wtf
Some people are like slinkies. Pretty useless, but fun when you push them down the stairs.
Who remembers getting picked up from school in one of these?
It's called Googe...
I used to have so much fun wit this back in the day
I loved playing with this before I was sent to the workhouse then died of consumption
On the last day of school (where we signed each others shirts) I went into one of the empty classrooms where someone had made a big 3d shape out these and threw it as hard as I could at the wall
If you didn't have one of these, just know that your parents never loved you.
I tried once, it felt good at first because I put some warm water on it to start with but once it dried out it became uncomfortable so I just decided to go back to what I knew worked best.
>Inb4 ur dad lulz
Never lift up the bun of your school cafeteria burger
I was a poor rendeck kid.. got dropped off in this. Thought i was cool in a used starter jacket i got from a yardsale.
The 1880s were a hard time for us all my friend.
Spend alot of quarters there with my good pals.. 18 dollers beating house of the dead. We had a crowed and i push a little kid out of my way when he got to close
Oh man super soakers. The SS 50 was actually considered a badass squirt gun by a lot of kids, until water fight day a summer camp when I showed up with this bad boy
If you recognize this, your childhood was awesome.
but then i whined and whined to my parents that it still wasn't good enough, and next summer i showed up with the super soaker equivalent of a nuclear mirv icbm: the absolutely insane SS XP250.
Especially with some ducttape and maybe a lighter to bend the pipes into handles.
Thanks for reminding me of those, I had such a great time with it.
>house of the dead
Get on my level, junior.
Shit got even better when we figured out we could role thorns from bushes into the tip and pop balloons with them. This one time people in the neighborhood had a big party with like 100 baloons outside their house. That was a god day.
this thing right here i remembered being so huge... then i pulled a picture and wanted to cry about how tiny i had to be
Krang and the Technodrome... right?
I collected Turtles chewing gum stickers.
this was the very first vidya i ever pirated. copied a stack of floppies from my cousin when it came out
the castle was the best. but dont forget about the pirate ship and robin hoods forest
I'm sure my mom wouldn't have appreciated me jacking all her pins. Thorns did just as well a job. No need to secure them with anything. It's a one-time use anyway. And the paper of the TV guide did a great job holding things in place.
anyone able to find a valid download link for the complete movies?
or this release:
Ah yes. And with Doom it was like 12 discs or something. I remember Theme Hospital telling me that disc 49 of 53 would be broken. ;-)
Ours would stick in trees, so needed the wax to stop the pin pushing back into the cone and to get them to penetrate.
Mini ones in an air pistol were fun too, but they needed to be weighted for any accuracy.
Anyone else ever burn the fuck out of their hands using this? Or is it just me?
loved these things as a kid. was a kings man. pretended like they were real cigarettes, which pissed my parents off. ironically i never even tried a real one but they went back to them after quitting until i was a teenager.
every once in a while i swing by the nostalgia candy store and pick up a few boxes, along with pixy stix, those wax bottles with the tiny bit of juice, and those dot candy sheets
Couldn't find the exact picture but the picture says it all.
fucking intro computer class was mandatory in middle school, where they start with typing lessons. first day teach saw i could already type 100+ wpm, so after that i did nothing except play pic related and iraq attack
I remember being on a school trip when we were in 7th grade (Dutch, so we'd be about 10). We were staying on this small island for 2 nights and boating around all the time. Then we found out that you could buy these in the town. They'd actually sell them to 10 year olds. So word quickly got around and everybody in my class got one and we'd spend all our time learning tricks with them.
In retrospect it was a recipe for disaster because one kid had seen that thing where you put your hand on the table and someone tapped the knife between your fingers real quick. Nobody got hurt though.
They were the coolest puppets. Seemed like some professional 1980s movie puppet, and their eyes glow in the dark.
I made the mistake of storing mine in an attic and shit melted to them.
If they do, I want one. But I don't want those patterns. I want pic related.
Still works, but nobody uses it anymore (because syncing files on a USB drive with exactly one "master" PC is pretty pointless), so it still has the XP logo.
Those would be of the market quickly today because some little fucktard hurts itself because it didn't follow the instructions correctly and the parents sue the cmpany for creating a "dangerous" product.
I ended up with those and switchblades and all kinds of shit by the time I was 8 and still living in NY.
Teenagers used to throw them into this little field when they thought the cops were after them so me and my friend would go searching for stuff there all the time.
I think "Aliens" was at fault for the stabbing between the fingers thing.
I fixed an ice cream man's computer and he gave me a whole case of those since they can't really sell them anymore.
The bubble gum ones with the paper wrapper were cooler though since you could blow some powder out of them to make it look like smoke.
Forgot pic related
I remember when everybody wanted the Midnight Pumpkin.
also in that class i got to use the teachers computer a lot.. in 1995/6 it was dual booting mac and windows 3.11, which was pretty badass. apparently it had a pci card that enabled DOS compatbility.
Doom was my... iunno, maybe 2nd or 3rd vidya.
And I thought pic related was even older than it was.
One of the greatest games of all time. It pretty much defined the RTS genre for years to come.
Awww sit i remember when those got around.
Never owned one, but i can still do the tapping pretty good. Even done it to someone else (no hand of mine on top) and looking away. Of course, not with a actual knife.
maybe i did have a decent childhood/young life lol
Similar thing happened when I was at school, we had a trip to France and a load of the lads bought butterfly knives and UN knives (the ones that the blade slides out forward from the handle). When we got back we were all called into an assembly as one of the girls grassed that some lads had bought them. We were offered an amnesty for anyone who wanted to hand then in before they considered getting the police involved
The sega era hit me better anyway.
Pic was from last year. Buddy of mine has like... 70ish cartridges.
I completely forgot about this until a nostalgia thread a couple weeks ago. I had one when I was like...three, maybe. I remember sitting in the back seat pretending like it was me driving the car.
My most feared thing was the roller boards they used to have in gym class.
"Oh let's throw 30 kids in the gymnasium and make them play bumper cars with with their fingers as bumpers."
>I tried to masturbate with one once and it was like impossible lol
Such mixed emotions.
>Dammit my dick is too big to fit in this thing. :(
>My dick is too big to fit in this thing. :)
Little aluminium toy cars with a black plastic base and blue or transparent plastic windows. I use to smash them all with the little hammer I found in my dads toolbox. I would sort all the pieces and put them in different boxes.
Nobody knew I was autistic back in those days.
There are two models. Yours is the original model, i think, the other one's a model 2 or something.
And it's not mine, friend has it and we sometimes play for kicks.
Lion king is harder than I remember :(
I've got a launch day Sega Saturn complete in box right next to me. Still works perfectly 21 years later
For comparison, I went through 4 Xbox 360s in 3 years. They don't make consoles like they used to
Worked at one in high school got fired for spending refund quarters on the machines while at work, boss was an ultra faggot got hired a week later at the cinemas next door life was good........
Lulz.....remember drinking beer in taco bell cups buzzed on weekends in the mall.
Kidz today are faggoots.
My stretchy incredible Hulk was way cooler.
There was a stretchy fad for awhile.
It was impossible to resist eventually stabbing them though.
I remember that game, and Aladdin were fucking impossible. My game was Zero Tolerance.
Pretty damn old school but I think it was actually my most educational toy even though it wasn't marketed as such.
Had to figure out distances and timing for an hour to program the thing to drive around the kitchen and do stuff.
I tried to remember the name of "that one 1st person game on the sega"
Fuuuck. Gotta find this one and play it.
Last time i gamed on sega, it was earthworm jim 1, golden axe, boogerman, mickeymania, and lion king.
ooh! And streets of rage!
I could compare it to the failure rate of PS2 consoles if that would make you happier. Consoles refusing to read the discs with blue underside on the "fat" model or the laser becoming misaligned on the slimline and failing to read DVDs.
Oh and the YLOD on the PS3. Even my OG Xbox refuses to boot up half the time
I never got the van.
I loved the ones where the doors and hoods and all that opened, and the ones with working head and tail lights.
I still have them and always want to try and replace the batteries in the headlight ones but never do. I have the little bat-mobile one from the Tim Burton movies still.
Oh noes, electronics have failure rates damn I though these things were infallible. How many Sega's do you think ended up in a dump because they shit the bed, together with all the other electronics like they tend to do? Nobody is going to keep a busted Sega for 21 years.
I used to have a water gun back then that was different from all the super shakers. Instead of having to pump it >9, 000 times for a constant stream if water, it was like 3-4 really hard pumps with a lever instead of a slide, and it fired a single burst of water. It was a ball of water that it hurled through the air. Has anyone seen one of those, or knows what it was called? It blew my mind that every water gun want like that.
I still ate it anyway
Dads belt. Good times man, good times.
My neighbor has one.
I see all the sega boys well I had one and shit ton of games but the one system that was my first that had DK1 in it I Still have to this day and have beaten it Over and over and over again....
