Oh WOW Man...Now THAT'S depressing...I actually still have Mine in - from a score of 1 to 100, 100 being "mint condition", 1 having been urinated on and sat aflame, Mine is in about 85% condition. And if it wasn't for the ONE ridiculous scratch on the front of it, I would have easily given it a 94%...!

If I was You, I'd go give Him a "wedgie" He'll never forget.

When I was a kid, I had corded rotary phones, but when I was a kid, we also started getting corded, touch-tone phones.

Corded touch tone phones



When I was pretty young, we had antennas on the roofs of a couple of houses so we could watch TV

I remember old computers having 3 1/2 inch floppy drives



A lot of young members here probably remember 3 1/2 inch floppy drives and disks, but might not remember 5.25 inch floppy disks and disk drives

People still use UHF/VHF antennas. You can receive a better picture from the actual over-the-air transmission than the one you receive after it has been processed through the cable and satellite companies. Plus you pick up a lot of local channels that the cable and satellite companies do not always offer.

He wasn't available everywhere due to regulations on toy guns. From Transformers Wiki:

"Aaaaaand toy gun laws which are designed to prevent scenarios where someone shoots a child or adult who is not armed, but carrying a "realistic" toy gun, like say, the original Megatron. U.S. law requires that toy guns have either an orange plug in the barrel, or a coat of orange paint on the barrel. Some states have even more stringent laws, which require that toy guns must be brightly colored and must not resemble real-world firearms. (Some retailers won't even carry realistic toy guns anyway, so that's a double-whammy some places.)
Note that the major federal toy gun law was enacted in 1988, and applies to all toy guns manufactured after May 1989. As such, it is entirely legal for dealers to sell original G1 Megatron figures, as they are grandfathered in; but any later American release of the toy WOULD have to meet these standards, hence the "Safety/Lava Bath Megatron" toy, which STILL failed to meet these guidelines, as the entire external surface was not (and likely could not be) made from a single color of plastic.
Also note that there's no size limitation anywhere in the legal regulations. As a consequence, even the recent 2010 Transformers Legends Class Megatron has to sport an orange barrel, despite his tiny size."
