You're welcome Marco. Its because of the cheeziness factor of these 80's commercial that we look back at them with fond nostalgia after 30 years! king Sure wish we can jump into that scene and buy up those Mint in Sealed Box of Vintage Star Wars vehicles and playsets.

The feeling's mutual on seeing the fully stock wall of Slave 1s. Is there are any 1980's era commercial of Canada's Sears and Woolco that show the Toy Departments with those cool Kenner Canada Star Wars carded figures and playsets? Smile

I'm not sure if there are any commercials from Canada? I will have to search Youtube when I have some time on the weekend.

The Atari commercial only cements the logic behind my childhood fear of E.T. It's a good thing I never saw that growing up!

Great video -- thanks for sharing!
