While clearing out stuff from my Mother’s I came across a ton of old drawings and this button. The drawing dated 1976, is from a series of Ultraman drawings I did when i was 12. Funny how something like this so early on would foretell what I would collect and do as a living so many years later !
The button as best as I can remember I got at the old Serra movie theater in Colma ( just outside of San Francisco .. I think the Captain Cosmic show had a movie showing of Godzilla vs Megalon , and gave out these buttons … there’s a Megalon and I think jet Jaquar one .. anyways my mom dropped myself and a few friends .. I think the first time I was out without parental supervision … amazing to think that in those days that was OK .. of course these days there’s no way i would do that with Max.. I’d have to hover over him 😉 … anyways I also thought about how you could pass out buttons back than and not worry about some kid poking his eye out on the pin part (!) yes the good old days … anyways Booska’s finally arrive today .. hundreds of boxes to go through so will be a busy day. Look to the Max Toy Co site if you want to order one !
