Okay, so this isn't a PVP post. It's not about any breaking news for Wrath of the Lich King. This will be more of a nostalgia post for me (and I know at least one other person, but hopefully more). For years I have had extremely fond memories of Crossbows & Catapults, the game you'd play on a hard floor and shoot discs at your opponents tower in attempt to knock it down. I've long since gotten rid of my pieces from this epic game, but it comes up in memories every once and awhile. (I know I had the Trojan horse, and the main set (I think), not sure what else I had.) I've seen it on E-bay or even used from Amazon for about $100 (like I'm gonna pay that).
But today, while walking through Toys R Us, browsing for upcoming birthdays for my children, I saw it: Battleground: Crossbows & Catapults. Even more geared directly to me, it's now the Knights vs. the Orcs. (Alliance vs. Horde?) I didn't pick it up since my kids won't be old enough for a few years, but I'm glad that somebody shared my dream of bringing back old toys like this one. Crossbows & Catapults? Check. Transformers? Check. Now if we can just get somebody to bring back the space guys that had magnets on their feet that would activate their vehicles (Space Something?) and the cars that would flip up their doors and fly (Not even a clue on the name of that one), I could relive my whole childhood with my kids. Oh, and of course Legos are on that list... but they're not going anywhere... ever.
Anyone else remember Crossbows & Catapults? And can anyone else remember the names of the two other toys I'm think of? (Gotta think 80's for this one.)
