If only I had friends to talk to: Bluetooth Star Trek Communicator Badge

Nostalgia nerds rejoice because ThinkGeek just gave you the ultimate dork toy! That’s right, they have created this the Star Trek TNG Bluetooth ComBadge with bluetooth and an internal microphone which allows users to answer and end calls with a push of the insignia. Now you can complain about how bad the new Star Trek movies are with the touch of a button! The badge will be out in November and will retail for $80. Advertisements

Hey! I’m on the radio: 70s Mr. Microphone Commercial

“Hey good looking, we’ll be back to pick you up later” Yes, that is a line (delivered by some kind of date rapist no doubt) in this amazingly 70s commercial for Mr. Microphone. As a person who was nowhere alive in the 70s, I had no idea about this commercial. However, according to people I’ve talked to who were children of the 70s, this might be one of the biggest Nostalgia inducing commercials of the decade. Everyone knows this commercial and wanted a Mr. Microphone. And why not? It looked awesome! You just walk around and interrupt people’s radio broadcasts and pull some sweet pranks! What’s that? It only worked on a single random AM station that no one ever had their radio tuned to? Okay, well I guess that creep in the convertible had the right idea, sexually harass people from a distance! Now please enjoy one of the greatest commercials of all time.   *I know The Simpsons parodied this, I just couldn’t find the clip.

“I know a genuine Panaphonics when I see it”: Amazing Knock Off Toys

We’ve all seen knock off toys as kids. Maybe you even owned a couple yourself. Perhaps they were a gift from a grandparent who didn’t know the difference between a genuine Ninja Turtle and a knock off Ninja Tortoise. Or maybe the knock off was a little less expensive and your dad is a very cheap man. Either way, we’ve all encountered knock off toys at some point. However, knock off toys are something that you can’t really appreciate until you are older and really see how funny these things truly are. So with that I give you a few amazing…ly bad knock offs. Enjoy! New Style Ninja Tortoise – The villain in this series is Grinder….it’s a more adult themed show. Space Boys 3 – This upsets me on so many levels. Super Robot Transformable Tomas – Some serious shit is gonna go down at Shining Time Station… Specialman – It could just be a coincidence that the Special Olympics mascot looks a lot like Superman. Super Marian – In the defense of this …

I have trouble staying in the lines: 90’s Coloring Book for Adults

Hey guys, my birthday is coming up and you know what I want? World Peace. Just kidding! That will never happen. What I really want is this Color The 90s adult coloring book by Outrageous Katie. It says ‘Adult’, so don’t let anyone give you any shit about being in your 20s, 30s or 40s and coloring in a coloring book (50 years olds can suck it, your were in your 20s when this stuff was relevant). For those interested in this little piece of Nostalgic awesomeness, you can buy it on Amazon! That place has everything! Except my fathers love….Anywho! Check out the link here as well as a few pictures below to get a taste of what the book offers and to plan out your coloring adventure! I myself am going to color Tim Allen blue because I’ve never seen a¬†blue Tim Allen before and quite frankly, I want to see one.

I Still Play With Dolls: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade Game Figures

First off, they are called action figures, so it’s totally cool. Second, HAVE YOU SEEN THESE FUCKING THINGS?! AMAZING! I didn’t think I could get this excited over some dolls…[cough]…I mean action figures, but these are pretty rad. Last week NECA revealed that they are producing a series of TMNT figures based on the original arcade games. They will apparently be sold in two set. The 1st set being the four turtles and the 2nd being Shredder and three members of the Foot Clan. Sadly, these will apparently be exclusively sold at San Diego Comic Con so the chances of getting your hands on a set are slim at best (even if you are going to said Comic Con). For more on these dream toys you will likely never own, check out the videos below (they are actually pretty great themselves). Enjoy!
