80's commercials

A lot of my friends in the toy industry worry that the days of the action figure are over. Kids have gone to video games and adults have moved over to statues. I never believed them since there are better figures out there than ever before. But when I look at these commercials from the 80's, I start to see their point. Look at how many figure lines there used to be!

And if you're not a nerd, look at how many breakfast cereals, American Express Cards, One To Grow On spots and mulleted kids hawking encyclopedias there used to be.

Fantastic! For an unbelieveable collection 70s and 80s commercials, contact Psaur through his blog

He's amassed quite a collection over the last few years!
