Wow, they got all the hottest games, way before Toys 'R Us ever did!

Not to be "that guy" but this would have been at least 1987 or 1988. I saw images of the Power Pad and Zelda II.

Still awesome though!

By all means, be that guy.

I'm glad it's not just me bothered by mistakes like these. Especially coming from a website built around nostalgia.

The ad seemed worth sharing, either way.

Though I should have made my sarcasm a bit more obvious, perhaps?

I remember we had a Lionel Kiddie city near us that were out of business around 1992. My buddy Eric went for the clearance and got a SNES system and Super Star Wars dirt cheap. Made off like a bandit.
