Go Cubs! Go!

So late on posting, but something big happened in November. The Cubs won the World Series.

One of the last baseball figures from McFarlane was the Anthony Rizzo figure.

Dragon Imports have taken over the 6 inch baseball and hockey figures from McFarlane. One of their first figures was Kris Bryant. Different sculpting style but still cool.

Pop Culture League: There's a Sale at Penney's

It's been awhile since I joined in on the PCL blog posts. Hope to be back in the swing of things more regularly now.

Anyway - this week's assignment is: "There's a sale at Penneys. What was one of your greatest deals?"

The only "deal" I could remember as a kid was getting an out of package 12 inch Kenner Chewbacca at Goldblatt's, in the Chicagoland area. Think my dad paid $3 for it and it was complete.

However, a friend sent me this 1983 JC Penney catalog as a gag gift a few years ago. I dig it out every Christmas to see what would be cool to get.

Ah, the fashions of the early 80s!

Lots of Smurf merchandising!

Cabbage Patch Kids - Spawns of the devil!

Who had one of these?

Anyone need an order form?

Barbie and Ken at McDonalds.

Prince Charles and Lady Di!

Fisher Price Little People sets still rock!

I want that GI Joe ride!

Space and Castle LEGOs.

Hand held arcade games! 

Phones and typewriters - kids today have no clue.

Nice form kid.

And now the cool toys! Did you have any of these?


Leave a message!

More from the League!
