I remember waiting in a long line to play “Dragon’s Lair” at an arcade at the CNE one summer. I put in a dollar(!) and died immediately. So I’ve never played Space Ace. Obviously, these games were the future, but this system was problematic for me at least.
I want to point out that I can’t verify this, but if it’s legit, then it’s a crazy bit of history. I am somewhat tempted, but I feel like that thing may rot.
Apparently, we’re in the summer of Grimace, so who am I to stand in the way of this progress? Also, I’m desperately hoping for “Hamburglar Autumn.” Make it happen, Ghost of Ray Croc!
Talk about crashing my chocolate bar into a jar of open peanut butter on the street (It happens, don’t question it). The combination of a random Rack Toy toy gun with “V” is intoxicating and over powering. I love this!
Remco made a mint off this concept, which worked for Batman or Star Trek but got weird with other Heroes (I mean, the Hulk didn’t need one.) I’m pretty sure I got this one at Dominion Playworld as a kid while staying at my grandparents. These things really didn’t last, I probably had the whole kit together for likely an afternoon. But what an afternoon!
Check out this video I made about the Remco Star Trek Utility Belt!
