Demolition Derby Pinball

We got another pinball game here at the Junk Store, and amazingly it is pretty functional. The flippers don't go all the way down, and some of the lights are burnt, and the game play is pretty simple, but, hey, working pinball game at the Junk Store!

You can learn more about Demolition Derby pinball here.

You can learn about the other pinball game that was donated years ago, and how much it sucked, at the Tales from the Junk Store post here.

Lil Devil and Friends

This oddball assortment of goofy puppets put a smile on my face. We have the Major, the stoney Doofus, the Kaiser, and my close personal friend...

Intellivision: Pitfall! and SNAFU

I could have sworn that I've posted more images of some of the Intellivision video game systems that have come through the Junk Store over the years, but a quick search of all the video game posts reveals nothing.
So allow me to make up for lost time by posting a few classics, in their original boxes.

First and obviously the best is Activision's Pitfall! The classic game that never ends.

And then one of my favorites as a youngster, SNAFU. Complete with box and controller overlays.

"Body Massager" by Housefun

NOT a vibrator. Just a vibrating body massager in a box that features a woman in a bikini who really seems to be enjoying her massage.

Heavy duty full metal Dymo Mite label maker hand embossing tool. In the box.
With guillotine label clip.
We don't mess around.

Happy days of reckless endangerment as we tokyo drift around the block on this rechargeable battery-powered go-cart. Complete with seat belts with no buckles, mini wheels, and an overall low profile to keep you safely out of sight from oncoming motorists.

Strap in for the another awesome Junk Pirate video exclusive:

more typewriters

Everybody agrees: Old non-electric typewriters are the best. Great for typing, great for taking pictures of. Here are some old typers that I haven't posted yet, so sit back at your -scoff- computer and wish you were swinging to the smooth click-clacks of Remington, Royal, and Smith-Corona.
