Roid Rage 7: the final Roid, Colorburst 100

Again, this isn't technically a Polaroid, but your mom technically isn't a whore because I don't pay her anything. 

Oh yeah. The Kodak Colorburst 100. This camera doesn't have a flash built in so you had to mount one on top like this guy:

And I'm sorry about calling your mom a whore. It's just that all these Polaroid camera posts were making me a bit nutty.

Land Camera. No pictures of water or sky allowed.

This one is a Polaroid 640 Land Camera. Hang in there, only one more to go.

Roid Rage 5: One Step Express

Next up:

In case the Polaroid One Step was just a little to slow for you, we have the aerodynamic Polaroid One Step Express. These came in a bunch of sporty colors, like gray and blue, gray and black, all gray, and (as seen here) the gray and green.

Roid Rage 3: Spectra SE

The Polaroid Spectra System SE

From the manual:
"When you press the shutter button, sonar waves (at frequencies beyond our range of hearing) are sent to the central part of the scene. A built-in computer measures the time it takes the sonar waves to reach the scene and the echo to return. This measurement is used to provide the correct lens setting."

Sonar? Now you talkin' science.

Roid Rage 2: Kodak Trimprint 920

This one, technically, isn't even a Polaroid. I don't care, I'm posting it anyways.

The Kodak Trimprint 920 (formerly known as the Champ Kodamatic).

Roid Rage 1, Let There Be Roids

Every day this week I'm going to reveal another addition to our ever-growing collection of Polaroid cameras. Sure, I could just publish all the photos in one blog entry, but I figured I could pad the old post count a bit and keep things rolling all week.

So, the first entry features a 1-2 punch of the beige Polaroid 620 Amigo and Polaroid Onestep Flash with the side rainbow stripe (AKA the Polaroid Rainbow 600).

Damn, Polaroid made a lot of cameras.

Best promo item EVER

Are you kidding me? It's is one of those squeezy foam promo items. Those are pretty cool. And it is for the 2004 movie Seed of Chucky (co-starring Redman with a cameo from John Waters). That's even cooler. And it is of a giant sperm. Now that is really cool. But wait, it gets even better.

Yup. On the flip side it says "Coming Everywhere." Oh, man. That is just so awesome. I can't believe this movie didn't make more money than Titanic and Star Wars combined with promotions like this. A little online searching revealed another great Seed of Chucky promo:

Seed of Chucky promo condoms. With the tagline "Get a Load of Chucky". Not bad, but I'll keep my giant "Coming Everywhere" sperm, thank you very much.

From the Quaker Oats website:
"In 1965, Quisp landed on Earth with his Quazy Energy Cereal – and the world's been a better place ever since, especially during breakfast. The saucer-shaped, crunchy corn cereal has delighted kids and adults everywhere. Bring Quisp to your house and home planet today. The crispy flavor is out of this world."

Welp, now the Junk Store is a better place because somebody just donated two empty boxes of Quisp. Only a nerd like me would even know what Quisp is and get all excited over a box a collapsed box of cereal. 
Now, if only somebody would donate a box of Quake cereal, then we could get this party started. If you really wanna get crazy, donate a box of Quangaroos. Whoa.

Pufnstuf vs. Shuvnstuf

When this HR Pufnstuf action figure came in, all I could think of is what might happen if this were to be purchased by the customer we know as HR Shuvnstuf. We call him this because he basically just cuts the line at the register, shoves a couple of dollars at you real quick, and takes off. This is actually a great haggling technique and a good way to avoid paying sales tax. Just cut a long line of customers like you are in a big hurry (although you've been browsing in the Junk Store for two hours), then say, "Here's five bucks for this stuff", then shove the cash at the clerk and stuff your ass out the door. Never fails.

Domino, motherfucker!

Dragon Dominoes through the ages:

The packaging sure has gotten drab since the psychedelic dragon days. Thanks, Milton Bradley.

and here is an image another cool old one I found online:

Get Belted with the PowerBelt!

As promised, today we will take a closer look at that amazing belt Hans was wearing in the last blog... it's the Powerbelt.

There it is. While it was clear at a glance that this was some sort of gimmicky exercise product, the Jammer and I fumbled with it for hours before just giving up and strapping it onto Hans. After some extensive internet research, I now realize that Hans is wearing his Powerbelt backwards. Your supposed to have those gizmos in the back, and then you grab the handles and pull the resistance ripcords while you run like cranked-up marionette. 
My internet research was further complicated by the fact that "powerbelt" is also a type of firearm ammunition.

You can get all kinds of Powerbelt info, testimonials, videos, and your chance to win your own Powerbelt at the official website here: Maximum Walking Fitness
