Retro Scan of the Week: Nintendo Power Cyborg Attack!

Image Description

There was a time in the late 1980s when Nintendo was so powerful that they could unleash whole hoards of Nintendo Power Cyborg Zombies (NPCZ), like the one pictured above, without so much as even a muffled cough from local law enforcement. These days, one half of a NPCZ couldn’t even step an inch outside a replication plant without a swarm of submachine gun-wielding feds swooping on him.

Man, how times have changed.
