A few weeks ago I was haveing one of my stupid bidding days on ebay ( where I put stupid low prices just to see what I win and get).
Well for the grand sum of £4 I won a boxed Vehicle Maintenace energizer ( Outer box beat up to hell but the toy inside is mint) It came today and it made me smile all because of a sticker that I dont think is a Kenner one Smile see what you think lol!

This came today and made me lol..... IMAG0004

Luckily those stickers did not exist during my childhood. Very Happy

Seriously: who comes up with a strange idea to apply non-vintage stickers onto vintage boxes?

I haven't seen a sticker like that since I was a kid! The comic shop/toy shop just near the station in Southend on Sea used to have a load of Vintage boxed toys behind the counter and they ALL had those stickers on them and I clearly remember asking to see an X-wing that was under the counter and they wouldn't let me as I was pretty young at the time LOL

This reminds me of one of my favorite Samuel L scenes.

The mighty TIG comes to the rescue again Laughing so it came from a comic shop in Essex, still seems a bit odd to put a sticker that cant be removed on a vintage box. I kind of like it makes me smile every time I see it now Laughing

For years I have been trying to think of what that shop was called, I don't know if you are familiar with Southend but this place was located in a part of the large shopping centre at the top end of the high street, you came out the station, went up an escalator into the shopping centre and this shop was located on the bridge/walkway. I used to visit each time I went to Southend!

I may have to do some google searching to find out if it is still there!

Memories Very Happy

That's hillarious!

I like the photo where after reading the sticker warning, it says Energiser TM TOY below it. Jedi mind trick stickers.

Seriously though, I hope the numpty whos dide this didn't wreck any mint boxes with his arse brain idea. How many boxes did the comic shop have in the day?

in our litigious society the steps amaze me..
the thrift stores here will not sell old toy anymore they dispose of them yes dispose of them . they fear lead and other paint on items.
