    Here is a series of photos:

    Surely, this can't be the Microphone I long and dreamed about.

    Can't get it open.

    HAHA Scissors for the win!

    [​IMG]

    It is! :rock

    However, it's in ROUGH shape. Microphone is in excellent shape, box not so much. He packed it in the little paper packaging, WITHOUT wrapping the box inside. It's been snowing here and well, the box got wet. :(

    Here's the back.

    The ebay auction had said it was in VERY good shape. Sigh. At least I didn't pay that much for it and I could save up for a better package. I'm just happy that I was able to snag this item. It's rather rare. *does happy dance*

    Alphie will be smiling for awhile. :D

    The idiots sent it in an envelope? No wonder the box looks smushed.

    I would leave them some nasty feedback for that (or demand some money back)!

    Damn, too bad the box is in rough shape. But that is one heck of a nice item. I've certainly never seen that one before.

    Wow... by today's safety standards, that's a hilariously inappropriate toy.

    It basically begs children to walk around shouting and pointing semi-realistic guns at people!

    Not that kids in the 80's didn't do that anyway. I sure did! So far I've been lucky enough not to get shot by overzealous police officers, but I'm not sure what my chances would be if I did the same thing today. ;)

    Could've been worse: they could have set it up so that you had to point the gun barrel at yourself in order to use it.

    WOW!! I have never seen that before!

    I'd be funnier if the mic part was actually the barrel of the gun. :lol :
