TNT A Whole New Network (1988)

Oh man, I can remember when TNT fist launched back in 1988.  I don’t why, but I was overly-excited about it coming to cable TV.  At that point in time, I had no interest in old movies like Gone With the Wind, so it must have been the allure of the cartoons along with The Muppet Show and Fraggle Rock KEEP READING…

New Kids on the Block (1989)

In my latest Wax Pack Flashback video for The Retro Network, I open a pack of New Kids on the Block Cards from 1989.  I love doing these videos and opening all these cool old packs of cards.  While New Kids on the Block were never my thing, I do respect just how big the craze was back in the KEEP READING…

WWF WrestleMania 3 Cards (1987)

Here is the latest Wax Pack Flashback video I did for The Retro Network.  It features yours truly breaking open a pack of WWF cards featuring WrestleMania 3 from 1987.  I love old wrestling, and these cards really take me back.  Hopefully, you get some old nostalgic memories flowing from watching.

Masters of the Universe Toys

If you’re on this site, then I probably don’t need to tell you just how big He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was back in the ’80s.  For a couple of years there, you couldn’t get through life without being bombarded with He-Man merchandise.  I know I certainly fell victim to the never-ending stream of advertisements and tie-ins, and KEEP READING…
