So tell me, Pac-Friends. How many of these Pac-Man items do you have? (Check the scans below to get a full description of all the items.)
Pac-Man this, Pac-Man that. It seems like they made a Pac-Man version of everything in the early 1980s. My brother's friend had a metal Pac-Man trashcan that I was always jealous of (and to think that he wouldn't give it to me!). Unfortunately, that item is not in the picture. My family bought a second-hand copy of the marblelicious Pac-Man board game you see on the floor there. It was pretty dumb, if I recall — nothing could compare to playing the actual video game on our Atari 800 at the time. And another of my brother's friends had the Pac-Man Fever album, but they never let me listen to it. I still hold it against them to this day.
Anyway, check out the other full scans below and behold the power of merchandising! Warning — the full images are pretty big. Enjoy!
