Okay, these toys are probably intended for girls, but I had a huge crush on Kate Jackson and probably would have enjoyed a Charlie’s Angels <> Six Million Dollar Man nonetheless.
The 70s probably had the best selection of sugary breakfast cereals in history. Cookie Crisp. Trix. Count Chocula. Lucky Charms. And, of course, Cap’n Crunch. I definitely ate my fair share of the kooky captain’s beige little balls, but I can’t imagine what made somebody think “Hey, Captain Crunch would be awesome as a board game!” Nonetheless, kinda glad they did…
I’ve seen (and owned) a number of Mego’s licensed figures, but despite enjoying the TV show, never owned and CHiPs toys. I’d seen them, of course, but a couple cop figures just didn’t excite me. Now, if I’d seen Wheels Willy here (who I’m assuming was in the show) I might have changed my mind. I can’t tell if that’s an eye patch or cyborg implant he has, but he’s a pretty bad ass looking villain.
I have, at one point or another, owned most of the game systems you can hook up to a TV, from the original Pong box to Xbox One, but I’d never seen this particular Coleco product until just recently. While it is a cool piece of video game memorabilia, I feel for whoever has to play on the left side of the system unless they are a southpaw.
