*Shakes his cane at all the youngsters*

darn kids! What with your new fangled CDs and DVDs... in my day we had cassettes and VHS tapes, and that's if we were lucky! If not, we had to deal with records and the like. We didn't have no fancy internet either... if we wanted to look somethin' up we had to go to the library! Cell phones... all kids have cell phones these days. When I was young, no one but rich people had em and they were the size of bricks! ...and if you had a pager you were either a doctor or a drug dealer.

Don't even get me started on action figures... in my day a few measly bucks would get you an action figure complete with accessories! Not like today where if you're lucky you'll get a figure for under ten dollars. Ten dollars! I'll bet it takes them less than 50 cents to make each figure... that's a 2000% profit margin in the end! It's really bad for kids... parents are less likely to buy a $15 figure for their kids these days than they were to buy a $4 figure in 1984. For those adult collectors it's less of an issue, but I think toys should be for kids first and collectors second. Call me old fashioned but that's how I feel.

Also, call me old fashioned, but I believe there's only one god... and his name is Zorgo and he lives in a lake near my home. *whistles*

Well put i also remember when action figures were cheap £1.99 for a thundercat that were like 8 inches tall and came with all sorts of accessories. Now you get a 3.75 figure for like £9.00, ridiculous. Not sure about that Zorgo stuff though :D
