`Pinatas` slight thread drift, but i have always felt
uncomfortable with the very idea of them!Yes, those
punch bag things were very popular in the 70`s, i never
had one, or desired one, why punch the good guys?

Brian Rhodes, Unmasked isn`t THAT bad!

Y'know, looking at those toys, I really don't find them bizarre. They are of their time and they were aimed at kids. We forget now that TV tie-in toys were not always meant to be kept pristine in their boxes on shelves in collectors' cabinets, they were meant to be played with. No super accurate model of the Enterprise I could buy as an adult will ever mean as much to me as the Dinky die-cast I used to fly round the garden as a boy and have adventures with.
