Flashback Friday: 1988 Mattel Food Fighters Toy Line Review
Friday, July 6th, 2012 by Pixel Dan
Welcome to Flashback Friday, the newest feature of Pixel-Dan.com!
Flashback Friday is a chance for me to share some of my past videos with everyone again. This will allow newer viewers to see a video they might not have yet seen, and allow the long-time viewers a trip down memory lane! It also serves to show just how much my videos have evolved over the years.
Warning: the quality will not always be very good in these older videos!
Today’s flashback is an overview I did on the bizarre 1988 Mattel toy line known as the Food Fighters. If you have been following me for some time, then it’s no secret that Food Fighters is one of my all-time favorite obscure toy lines. It’s just so weird that it has always appealed to me. It’s a strange concept, but these toys are a lot of fun!
This particular video is also a very special one. This is one of my earliest toy videos. You can really see how far I’ve come as far as quality is concerned. When this video was originally put together, it was intended to be an episode of a series I was planning on developing called “Plastic Treasures.” It was set to air as the next installment after my “Many Versions of He-Man and Skeletor” videos.
However, instead of going forward with Plastic Treasures, I developed the idea of a series called “That New Toy Smell” with friend Jason Devall. Since this video was already done, it became the first episode of that show, and the rest is history.
Original air date of this video was September 6, 2008.
Enjoy this blast from the past! And stay tuned, as more Flashbacks are on the way!
