178 - Austin Toy Museum


I visited Austin this week and the Austin Toy Museum was right around the corner from my hotel. It's quite small and you can probably get through it in 10 minutes, but it was definitely nice to see. While I can respect items like He-Man or Transformers, the pieces that really got me were the wall of Tiger Electronics games and M.U.S.C.L.E. figures.

Wanted to take those home.

If anything, the small walk down memory lane is worth the $8 for this local establishment to keep their doors open. They also had a few arcade cabinets on free play, but I wouldn't write home about those to be honest. They had the audacity to hook up a Tekken 2 board on an old Double Dragon cabinet! I cried.
