Collect All 21: Special Garbage Pail Kids Bonus Shout-Out Edition

Thanks to Shawn Kemple for posting this review of “Collect All 21!” which gets bonus points for referencing Garbage Pail Kids. He also mentions his own toy-trading adventures as a kid (seems there was a Transformers Jetfire brouhaha in there) and playing Lucasarts’ “X-Wing” on a computer with no sound card. Schweet!

My favorite bit, though, is this:

I personally don’t think you even need to be a hardcore Star Wars fan to enjoy this book. Many of the memories in here can be related to anything if you were a kid growing up in the late 70’s-80’s.

That sort of thing is awfully humbling and  gratifying to hear.

  1. I finally got around to reading email. Good thing I am at work because I can’t cry here, the tissues are too small and flimsy. I wish, I wish, I wish…………16 years, 4 months and 25 1/2 hours and it STILL hurts.
