Well, that may be overstating it. I had my Pac Man Nelsonic Joystick watch stolen from my Gym Locker in 5th grade after flaunting it all over school. Last night, I lost an auction for a near mint one on ebay! It was like reliving the loss!
Many fond memories of playing it in school which at the time was unheard of! No dsi's, phones, or anything. The thought that you could sneak a vg into school in the form of a watch and play it with a joystick was insane! Needless to say, I'm willing to pay top dollar if I ever see it again.

I can relate.. I had my Six Million Dollar Man action figure w/bionic eye get absconded with by a kid I thought was my friend.

Good Luck!

Wow, I just remembered I found my SMDM in a box at my parents house last time I was there... Still had the 'circuits' in his arm too... But I seem to have lost the engine block that he could pick up... (Can't believe I remember all of that...)

You only have to worry if you grew up in an area of Columbia, SC known as Denstville...and attended Dent middle school around 1981-83. Wink
