1985 Kellogg's Starbots! Who remembers these things?

Every now and again I check eBay for Starbots, a legendary 1985 Kellogg's cereal freebie. I finally found a reasonable set that I had to order, So say I did!

The Shuttle and Galaxy ship where icons of my daily play back in the 80's. Transformers were expensive, so these cereal sets were perfect filler. The Galaxy ship, like a little Star Ship Enterprise, was one of my favorite all time toys.

My originals, are long gone. I think I had them both in white, so when I saw silver versions I got really excited to say the least. Amazingly the plastic holds up well, being entombed in the packages for over 25 years. I was sweating that there was not going to be any breaking.  Both the Shuttle and Galaxy ship are really before their time in transformer designs. I swear the front plate of the shuttle looks like Cats Lair though. The Galaxy ship was also used as a weapon/metal detector/floor buffer for my G.I. Joes.

Stickers/instructions were still in the package too, but I am not sure if I really want to crud the Starbots up with them. They are nice reminders of days gone by.

The Plane Starbot also was included. I did not have this one as a kid. It's more of a military Starbot, and not so great of a design. Nice to have though. There is one more Starbot, a helicopter, that I have to find (had my trigger set, but held off, as I don't really care for helicopters.)

This was also included in the set. I don't think its an official Starbot? I really have no idea what it is. The plastic pack was slightly different, but the plastic feels almost the same. I don't have a picture to go off of to build it, any ideas???

It looks really cool what ever it is. Ideas?

Happy Meal 2013 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Figures and Fingerboards!

This is really a good idea. Stand alone figures with boards, then combine with fingerboard sets with ramps. So many possibilities!

Mega Bloks takes on war with Call of Duty Collector Series. The sets look overly too nice for me, but the Zombie Horde set was perfect for a number of ideas. So says this video too.

Iron Man Wild Walls Uncle Milton Wall Scape

I repainted the old office, and added an Iron Man Wild Wall wallscape. Its a pretty neat idea to brighten up the walls. The FX activator shoots light and sound enhancing the graphic.
