Why is it that you really don’t start getting interested in history until you get older? Yeah, you’re taught history throughout school, but unless you become a history buff, it doesn’t seem like people dig history until they’re much older. That is especially true with me. After about 45, I couldn’t watch enough documentaries. I have learned so much in the last few years. A lot of things I wish I would have known in my 20s and 30s. However, I think it’s like when you have kids. You can try to impart the sum of your wisdom on them, but most times, they won’t follow it, at least not immediately. You have to hope it resonates and shapes them as they grow older.

I think toy companies are doing a pretty good job of learning from their past. There are always exceptions, but overall, I feel they’re heading in the right direction. Star Wars has been doing a good job rereleasing in-demand figures. Since Toys are now being collected primarily by adults, nostalgia reigns supreme. Toy companies keep pumping out updated engineering on toys we loved, like Origins Nightstalker and Missing Link Bumblebee and Cliffjumper. Hasbro, in particular, has discovered by just changing the scale you can get everyone to buy figures like the Cobra Trooper again.

Never stop learning…Slick
