From everyone here at Retro Ramblings, we wish you a happy Thanksgiving!
I recently came across these utterly awesome ThunderCats minifigures that are compatible with all Lego toys, and knew I had to have them. Once I got my hands on them and saw them in person, they were cooler than I could have hoped for! The detail on these things is incredible, and now my Lego city has Lion-O and friends standing guard over it from the evil Mumm-Ra.
After I spent many hours posing and playing with these things, I thought, “Man, I bet there are a lot of other old 80’s nerds who would want some of these too.” So I placed a bulk order, and now I have them available in my online store at Etsy so everyone else can get their hands on them too!
So for just $14.99, you can get a whole set of these as well that includes Lion-O, Bengali, Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara, and Mumm-Ra. If you want to check them out, just click on over to our Etsy store.
Each week on Monday, I post a new topic here on Retro Ramblings. The topics will be centered mostly around a retro theme to get your mind going back in time a little bit. Anyone who is interested, and has a blog, website, YouTube channel, or social media account can contribute to the weekly topic, and respond by the following Sunday. Once the article, blog post, video, or whatever is posted, the writer must leave a comment on the topic page along with a URL to his/her article.
If you are posting a response via social media, be sure to tag it with the hashtag, #RetroRevival (and you may also want to tag me on Twitter @yesterdayville) to ensure that I don’t miss it.
Every blog that contributes to the weekly topic should include links to some of the other contributing sites. This is optional, but the more people who do this, the more traffic will be generated for all of us. There is a distinct advantage to getting your post up earlier in the week, but don’t feel like you need to rush your post.
This week, I thought it would be fun to go back in time and talk about some food item that you miss from years ago, or some fast food item that is no longer available, or even some kind of restaurant or dining experience that just isn’t the same anymore. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. Myself, I’ll be putting something up later this week about how Pizza Hut just isn’t like it used to be.
Be sure to keep checking back here as I’ll be adding links to all the entries to this post.

I had my fair share of Remco figures back in the day, most notably their AWA Wrestling figures, but I never had these Warlord figures. PlaidStallions has a nice look at some of these figures too.
