You’ll Be Dynamite! TVTA is back!

Ayiyah!

Greetings vintage mates! TVTA is back from a six month hiatus and ready to kick ass in the name of vintage and retro goodness!

Fear no man!

Kung Fu. 1974. US.

These past six months have flown by, and while my other site The Atomic Mage (where I do my writing, poetry and Six Sentence Story contributions) has been healthily choo-chooing along, I can honestly say I’ve missed TVTA and all things retro!

Ayiyah!

AWMA martial arts uniforms. 1983. US.

October 2021 sees the return of your humble editor and his intrepid office cat Wooof, as we look to pay the outstanding rent, repair the roof, clear the archives of mice crap, send begging letters to Mrs Coldkettle the tea lady to come back, and get to grips with a brand new scanner which seems to have a mind of its own! (This morning I swear I heard it say to Wooof as he was trying to scan a Hello Kitty poster: “I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.”)

Pernickety scanners aside, what better time than the month of October to bring you images and ads for 1980s horror films, some cool horror magazine covers, and of course TVTA’s longstanding traditon of creating a Halloween pumpkin!

Also coming up over the next few weeks will be some 1970s die cast toy catalogues, and a feature on my collection of Star Wars Black Series 6″ action figures!

As for today’s images… no idea why the martial arts theme… all we can say is…

Ayiyah!
