I'm sure you remember this one advertised in the comics... The Ricochet Racer toy was basically a spring-loaded gun that shot plastic cars... and I'm guessing after one too many kids went to the emergency room after having one of these embedded in their eye (or one too many windows were broken), that was the end of this toy line!
You know, in almost two years of collecting photos from eBay auctions (I'm writing this entry in April, 2009, by the way, so it'll be nearly three years when this is published), I've only come across two Power Shields on eBay -- this one, and a Batman one!
One of the problems with running so many blogs, with so much shared between them, is that it's hard to remember what photos I've shared on which blogs! This item, the Power Putty, is a prime example... I know I've shown a photo of it somewhere before, but not this size!
I have been a Navy journalist, word processor, graphic designer, medical assisting student, cook, and truck driver, and am currently an eBay seller as well as an employee at a big retail store. I have been and always will be into comics, sf, tv, cartoons, monsters, oldies rock, and lots of other stuff.
