Mail Call!

 

It's been a minute since we've last had a mail call here at The Toy Box. No better time than now.

First up, let's go back about a month to a trip to Target. It was here that I came across a yellow box of cereal that halted me in my tracks.

Now, I do enjoy me some Peeps. In fact, any marshmallow treat will do me just fine. So when I saw this cereal staring at me, I was all over it. However, it wasn't until just a week or so ago that I finally cracked it open and had a taste.

I poured it into my brand new cereal bowl, an awesome Fallout themed Sugar Bombs design and snapped a few photos.

Yes, the cereal was amazing. 


Delicious yellow, blue and red hoops encompass the majority of the cereal. This is complimented by bunny shaped marshmallows of the same color scheme.

As a whole, the cereal just works. It's lightly sweetened, offering a nice flavor, while not being a sugar overload, or bland mess.

Though it doesn't say it on the box, I have to believe this is a limited time cereal. If nothing else, limited to Easter time, much like the Count and his pals are cordoned off to Halloween.

To compliment my cereal moments, I got the perfect mugs for enjoying my coffee in. They're only to the greatest (fictional) amusement park of all time, Nuka-World!

Boy, who wouldn't love if this place was real? I mean, not with the wasteland setting and Raiders everywhere. Rather, a fully functional theme park.

I also finally got around to plugging a gap in my original The Amazing Spider-Man run.

I've had issues 31 and 33 for a while now, but never procured issue 32 until just now. I'm not sure why I waited so long. It just kind of fell off my radar.

I'm still missing seventy-six issues between number one and two-hundred, and while I suspect I will finish up 100 - 199, which comprises of eighteen of those seventy-six, Though I'll fill in gaps where I feasibly can, I don't ever foresee myself getting all fifty-eight of the issues between 1 and 99. I don't have thousands of dollars to spend on one comic book.

Last up is for you Joe fans!

Yeah, buddy, the new wave of G.I. Joe Classified, featuring Lady Jaye and Flint are cropping up. While I had these pre-ordered from Pulse, I keep tabs on one particular seller who not only seems to get figures well in advance of their arrival in stores, but doesn't rake people over the coals in selling them. To me, it's just worth it to grab them all in advance, and not wait months for Hasbro to receive, box and ship everything out. Honestly, I don't know why I even bother pre-ordering anymore.

I'm going to do an unboxing post here soon, and in doing so will scrutinize over that Cobra Commander one to see if there are any differences from prior released versions to this one. I'll let you know if I find anything. Until then, that wraps it up for me.

Wicket The Ewok (Kenner Preschool)



Wicket The Ewok
Kenner Preschool
1984

One of the relatively unknown Star Wars toys produced by Kenner was their short lived 1984 preschool series based on the Ewoks cartoon series. I can't believe my parents bought the Ewok Family Hut for me as a kid in 1984. I was seven years old, and this is clearly a babies toy! Not that I knew that at the time. Nor did it hinder me from getting hours of play out of it.

To compliment the playset, Kenner released two additional smaller sets. The first was the Ewok Woodland Wagon, and these second the Ewok Fire Cart. Like the playset, each one included a handful of minifigures to round out the series.


From there, Kenner branched out into a realm of real world themed products in the form of a toothbrush, alarm clock, telephone and radio. Don't get too excited. With exception of the toothbrush, these were all just toys that didn't function beyond a handful of sound effects.




In terms of Star Wars toys, these are certainly some of the more unique ones. I've said it before, it's amazing that it took Kenner until 1984 to start releasing Star Wars toys geared towards younger kids. Toddlers, if you will. In hindsight, it seems like a really large missed opportunity.
