If, in an effort to generate space, you were to lay a person's childhood out on a newspaper, what might it look like?
Well, it would look like that, only five times as dense. These are the things that I'm keeping. That's minus a whole lot of Ninja Turtles, G.I. Joes, metal cars and miscellaneous space ships. And remaining we find: Thundercats, Ghostbusters and police cars. Sorting through all this stuff, I expected nostalgia (and got it), but I also found a few surprises, for example this gal:
I don't remember her at all, in fact I didn't even think that I had any female action figures. Not because I didn't want them, but because my mum was adamant that certain things were for girls, and so I couldn't really want them.
According to Google, this is Pumyra, and her action figure is actually worth a bit if you have her sling (which I don't) and the fake gold hasn't gone green (which it has). I have no idea how or when I got this toy, especially since the UK never got as far the second season of Thundercats, which is when she first appeared. Apparently.
This is what happens when you pull all of your childhood out at once: things get mixed up, and the next thing you know, someone's hat is being eaten. Well, it will save just that little bit more space. Which, if I recall correctly, was the purpose of the whole endeavour anyway.
