Retropalooza

It took me a minute to get around to this post, I'm not sure if it's because we scored so much awesome it too me a while to find the words, or if I'm still recovering from the discovery that at one point in life there WAS a Dennis Rodman Bride Barbie.
Or that at some point it was selling in stores for $35.00 OR the fact that I could buy one at this toy show for $25. Maybe I should have snagged it, there's a couple people selling them on Ebay for $60 plus claiming it's "rarity" Oh E-bay, you humor me!
I digress... Let's talk about Retro Palooza! Shall we?

Eric's friend Emilio and his brother Steven put on this show with some toy vendor friends of theirs. The primary items there were retro games and action figures, but it was kind of a mixed bag of toys! 



We didn't spend much, but we came home with a TON of toys. I think it probably had a lot to do with the fact that we went near the end of the day, and it was pretty slow. Vendors just wanted to get rid of their stuff at that point!  

I got two Monster Magazines about the Wolfman which are copywrighted 1974, an ET Colorforms playset. (completely ridiculous). Two whole bags of vintage Mickey Mouse Toys (they were cheap!) and a Grandpa Simpson to get one more Simpson closer to completing my Lego Simpson Set!


This one was pretty thrilled to have us home after the show - we weren't there very long but he missed us!
