T-Rav at Doomkick reviews the Computer Warriors Strategic Weapon Base Playset

    
Check out Doomkick.com!
     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.....
