Now why do we have throwback tues exactly? To remind you that after sunday game, hang over and being mad about having to go to work monday…you need something get you through the rest fo your week.
This one is about a throwback from Mickey D’s called Astrosniks, now i`m sure if you know about their your showing your true age *lol* never the less these classy little aliens had style with their purple jumpsuits, catsuits, boots, gold belts and green skin made all the other toys a little jaded. You have seen them right? well what you didn’t know whats that they came in several colors before they were green and purple they also came in black and gold, blue and white, all gold, red and black and red and white.
If any body knows me you know I am a total TOY WHORE! Chanel, Gucci and Prada you can have it, just point me in the direct of toys from yester year such as Astrosniks
Now if you think about it looking at another type of cartoon which was turned into a toy was the Smurfs ands there less loved cartoon cousins the Snorks perhaps the Atrosniks are related to them in some way or another. I had the complete collection Astrosniks as a little kid, unfortunately they were destroyed in a house fire. Never fear thanks tom places like Ebay i`m on a quest to rebuild my toy collection and Astrosniks are first on my list.
These where extremely one of a kind or swaggerjacker of another although rumor has it the idea was stolen from the smurf creators….they also had there own little world, spaceships and coloring books as well as (to my surprise) regular books as well titles such as Astrosniks and the Quasar Caper & Astrosniks in Space. Astrosniks had to be pretty big if McDonald’s added them to their Happy Meal list.
