One of the great things about Major Spoilers is seeing the latest and greatest toys, souvenirs and merchandising related to our shared obsessions, and thinking about how I wish *I* had a dad like Stephen growing up.  ‘Course, he probably wouldn’t let me play with the really good toys, either.  Even my youthful envy of the kid who got the USS Flagg aircraft carrier doesn’t quite match the awesome of 1/6 scale photo-realistic action figures or my very own Green Ranger hoodie, leading to today’s retail query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) still wants to find a Black Hole Cygnus model kit, like I had when I was a kid, asking: What one bit of merchandise do you most wish they made (or, alternately, wish you could actually AFFORD?)


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
