The Goggles Do Nothing!

Post by Alexa on Tue Dec 20, 2011 4:45 pm

Well, once upon a time, they seemed have lit up, but that's getting ahead of the story.

Yesterday, I went thrift shopping. I looked around the toy section because I wanted to see if I could find anything cool. At one point, I decided "Hey. I should look for BLoSC stuff."

Lo and behold, I was lucky that day and found this:



Here's one side of it:


And the other:

Spot the diff, anyone?

I think the little things on the front were supposed to light up when you lower the bar. The bar is seen best in the third picture (sorry 'bout that. I forgot to keep in mind where it was). I can actually wear them, but since I wear glasses I can't see a thing with these on, so I can't really tell you how the world looks while wearing this goggles. Sorry!

In other news, when I was at my dental appointment yesterday, I saw that they had a box with Toy Story dental hygiene things of some sort in it. But, on the side of the box was a picture of BLoSC Buzz and Zurg! That's right, not the Toy Story version but the BLoSC version! 8D

I was actually very surprised to find it as well! I hadn't expected to see BLoSC related merchandise the first day I decided to look for it! XD

I even found a deck of Dark Horse mini-playing cards and my brother found a bunch of Genesis games for 99 cents each. Thrift shopping is amazing! (It also helps to go to a good thrift store. Just saying.)

Goodwill. It's in a city about about 45 minutes away, but it's worth it to go to that particular one. The local ones aren't good... Not as many good things being donated.

No, my brother just wanted to go thrift shopping to see if he could find anything good, so we decided to go to that particular Goodwill since he hadn't gone there with us yet.

That's pretty cool. It's hard to find anything BLoSC themed these days.
