Not many people seem to remember Computer Warriors these days. Released by Mattel in 1989, Computer Warriors focused on a group of government manufactured warriors called the Computer Warriors who fought against a group of evil computer viruses that would hide in everyday objects like computers, sci-fi novels, and Pepsi cans. "Expect the Unexpected!" The line was a very cool minifigure toyline which featured transforming objects. The Pepsi can opened up into a launch center for a small aircraft. The science fiction novel Invasion of the Viruses
opened up into a missile base for the bad guys. The largest piece, however, is the very cool set that T-Rav over at Doomkick.com
is looking at today: an old-school desktop computer that turns into a Strategic Weapons Base playset
. I actually bought one of these at a garage sale in 1996, but must have sold it at another garage sale. Sometimes I hate myself for doing that, and this is definitely one of those times. Anyways, head over there and check this thing out. Thanks to T-Rav and Doomkick.com
for reawakening some childhood nostalgia and self loathing.
Perhaps this series will be next on my list after I complete Legends of Batman.....
