The E.T. Clock? Darth Vader and Pac-Man Phone? Atari Space Case? I want them all!

Everything that Push-A-Matic is selling in this Christmas ad from 1983, I wanted. Sadly I didn’t get any of it. In the years since first seeing most of these items, I have acquired many of these items on the secondary market. That Vader phone was an especially good find.

I was walking down the street around 1986 on trash day and the Dark Lord of the Sith was just sitting there on someones curb. I grabbed it and ran home, not even expecting it to work. I thought I could just put it on my shelf after cleaning it up, but to my surprise it was fully function and did so well into the nineties.
