Gloow Ghost - Pineapple Series 1 Figure Boxed on eBay

ToysToxitronVia eBay: Vintage 80's Pineapple Glow Ghost. What's interesting here is these Pineapple Glow Ghosts rarely come up for sale packaged, and this is the first image of the first series - with a box - I've seen on the internet.

This BooHoo comes in a blue box that looks vaguely like the containment units of The Real Ghostbusters. If memory serves, my Baggs came in a red box - btu I haven't been able to find evidence to confirm this. The series 1 boxed toys were missing the "cutie marks" of the second series - only their eyes and mouth were painted. I also had zero memory that the box said "Gloow" instead of "Glow" on it.

TransformersNewnessWhat a lovely day! Via Autobase Aichi: Transformers Cyber Battalion Prowl and Jetfire are showing up in stores.

New Games for the Xbox One

Xbox OneGoat Simulator: Waste Of Space BundleXbox fans, it's time to try Goat Simulator: Waste Of Space Bundle. Microsoft says:

"Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. Destroy things with style, such as doing a backflip while head-butting a bucket through a window, and you’ll earn even more points! Goat Simulator is a completely stupid game and, to be honest, you should probably spend your money on something else, such as a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe pool your money together with your friends and buy a real goat. Goat simulation is finally leaving the planet where it was once conceived to explore the endless possibilities of space. You no longer have to fantasize about colonizing space as a simulated goat. Your dreams have finally come true."

New Games for the Xbox One

Xbox OneAnoxemiaXbox fans, it's time to try Anoxemia. Microsoft says:

"Anoxemia is a story-driven exploration game that puts you in control of the scientist Dr. Bailey and his operations drone, ATMA. Search the ocean floor as you discover and extract samples from the bowels of the underwater caves. Danger lurks in each passageway, from poison drifts to powerful ocean currents, mines leftover from the war, and mobile machines running haywire. There’s also the ever-present risk of running out of oxygen. Fortunately, ATMA can help guide you to your destination using a few special tools and upgrades. Features a unique sci-fi horror story that unfolds while you explore 35+ levels of unique underwater terrain."
