Occasionally I use MiddleEasy as a tool to locate obscure toys from the late 80s/early 90s, and this Friday morning I think it’s about time for someone out there to rack their brain and locate a morsel of our collective childhood. Alright, does anyone remember those plastic skeleton figurines, roughly about three inches in height, that came with a pack of chemicals that (in retrospect) probably caused some type of skin cancer? You mix the packet of chemicals with water inside of a container and then slowly dip your skeleton figurine in it until it’s covered with a layer of pseudo-flesh. The stuff would eventually melt off, I mean it was an absolute mess, but my God was it innovative. They don’t make toys like that anymore — literally teaching an entire generation to manifest life inside the confine of a test tube. That’s probably the reason why we’re all so pro stem cell research.
Hopefully someone out there will scour their brains to find the name of that bizarre toy kit, but in the meantime you should watch this clip from Full House Battle Home 2 in Minas Gerais, Brazil of a fighter getting knocked out in ten seconds due to his strange fighting stance. Props to Lucas Lutkus for the find.
