    Early 90s packaging appreciation station

    I really like the pink & green color scheme they were using in the old days

    I like how a lot of things were overtly neon colored with a lot of light greens, pinks and blues back in the late 80's-early 90's. Maybe that explains why the Season 2 and Season 3 DVDs were light greenish-blue and pink respectively? I haven't really thought about it before.

They came three buttons to a capsule, I believe. Naturally, as a Simpsons fan I jumped on collecting them, and I think I got nine or so different buttons. But even as an 11/12 year old kid, I could tell that the buttons were very old, like 1990 old, and I found it super odd that they were still available in a grocery store vending machine. For all I know that machine had sat largely untouched since the early nineties.

    I just bought a few of those buttons from a pile of them that I spotted at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo.

    The only other merch I own with this weird old branding is this pinball game. I even have like two or three copies because I had to cobble together a version of this that actually works.

    These take me back. I just love those green and pink designs. I have a bunch of merch in my loft, but they're buried. I know I have some collector cards, but other than that I don't know exactly what I got.

    Except Lisa isn’t giving Maggie bunny ears anymore and Bart is making a face instead of having his hand on Lisa’s arm.

    I wonder if that’s where this image actually originated from? A bandage box? Hah!

    It's most likely a remake of that picture. I've seen the picture on the bandages box on Ebay and DevientART but not of that pic on the T-Shirt.
