TVTA presents eight retro gaming ads fresh from the 1980s … featuring Atari’s Advantage Prize Offers and Moon Patrol … Intellivision’s Kool-Aid Man and Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Video Games … Taito’s Bubble Bobble … Wrestle Mania … Parker Brothers Popeye The Sailor Man … and game offers from the UK’s BOMB!
… and a little bit of Lego!
Some pics from Lego set 21308, The Beatles Yellow Submarine. I think the character likenesses of Paul, John and Ringo are pretty good, not so much for George, alas. The yellow submarine itself is cool, funky and psychedelic, and comes with the character Jeremy Hillary Boob Ph.D.
Will Lego follow on with other Beatles/music themes? How about a 3D recreation of the Sgt Pepper album cover in mini figures? You can see my Beatles Corgi taxis here … how about some Lego taxis to match? Some smaller sets would work well as the price tag on the yellow submarine is high. I would love to see some onstage rock scenes like classic Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden with Eddie, Pink Floyd floating pigs, Marshall amps, lights, drum kits etc.
