Exclamation It's safe to talk about Boglins and the Micro Machines guy in here

It's okay to talk about your memories of these things and how they make you feel



No one can hurt you here



Rudeness and bullying will not be tolerated, only love for Boglins and the Micro Machines guy

Back when a mustache meant sincerity.

Flashbacks to being babysat

Can remember that orange shag carpet, pooped my pants, it was summer in the garage and someone’s older brother was air-guitaring on his belly. They said he had emotional difficulties

I can still remember exactly how a Boglin smelled

It had plastic eyes you could move around when you were puppeteering, and I never like put on a puppet show or something with it, but I did play with it a lot

I feel like I might have bought a He-Man Extendar figure at the same time I got the Boglin and their release dates seem to suggest this is possible

Micro Machines guy does not seem to have an active career any more, unless he's one of those cattle auctioneers now

I remember being flabbergasted by his speedy talking and tried imitating him to no avail; he was simply untouchable, a ghost, perhaps—even—a god among us

We are doomed to the same fate as the boomers, and soon enough we'll be jerking off to the sort of imagined past as old men at classic car shows.

I hope I made it clear it's okay to talk about Boglins and the Micro Machines guy in here, but just to reiterate, this is a safe place

I understand if Boglins are a sensitive subject for many of you

What the Micro Machines guy taught me is that cartoons have voice actors, because he did that fast future-car robot in the Transformers movie and I recognized his voice, and suddenly I realized

I didn't think cartoon characters were real, to be clear, I'd just never really thought about what goes into making one

But also to be clear, it's okay in this thread if you thought cartoons were real

I have a dim memory of being mildly creeped out by them but then finding the commercial not so far off from your typical Jim Henson fare and so kind of appealing

What does rattle around up there in the attic though is fucking Superted of all things

Because I remember vaguely that my toddler's brain could not parse the fact that the character's layer of fur was supposed to be a suit, but instead interpreted it as him actually removing his own skin, the concept of which upset me a great deal

Red face

I remember Superted very well, and the skin-shedding is indeed distressing

I forget how he went back to Normalted but I wouldn't be surprised if he zipped off the supersuit in this infinite regression of flesh and cloth

The concept of Superted was very important in playing with my own teddy bear, a cardboard jetpack for whom I built and had him zoom around in

It's revealed in the Transformers: Beast Wars series that Optimus Prime transforms into Eeyore.

I did! I read some interview with him where he was talking about how many people came up to him at conventions and thanked him for his kind portrayal of a donkey with depression they could identify with.

He didn't do the original '70s movie, but was the regular guy in the…'80s and '90s I think. And then for that Christopher Robin movie with Ewan McGregor they recast most of the voices for some reason. I remember watching it and thinking, "What on earth. What on earth is going on here."

And yeah, Eeyore's the best. In the books and in the films.

I definitely did not, in any way, identify with Eeyore at any point in my life, particularly in high school, so that just to give you an example one of my closest friends never gave me an Eeyore Christmas ornament and told me "you remind me of him so much"

I mean she didn't tell me, or whatever I need to say to negate this thing that never happened and that I, as a result, don't think about often
