More Wishing

I can still remember that summer where I went to Octopunk's house for the first time and I spied his shiny Millenium Falcon. Back in the late 70s Octopunk was a neat freak (what the hell happened?) and his bedroom was well organized. As I scanned the coolness of his room I saw this awesome ship. I was simply GREEN with envy that he had such a cool toy and it would be a long time before my endless begging netted me one as well. I still think that this is my favorite Star Wars figure accessory - this or the ATAT.

Of course Octopunk also had Atari before everyone else including all the exciting games of the time such as Math Fun. Damn, Octopunk, you were so freakin' spoiled!

Weird that they're listing the Atari 2600 as the "Sears Game Console." What up with that?

I wonder if Sears had some sort of licensing agreement to do so or if it was an Atari knockoff.

It's weird, while some of those screen shots look familiar, none of the names do. Buwahhh?
