I recently acquired a large lot of Contrux parts. I searched the internet for hours trying to determine which pieces went with each set. Sadly, I found there was no resource for Construx photographs. To solve this problem, today I launched the Construx Archive! It already has a ton of nice pictures and useful information but I still need help in completing this project. The most important items are Box Covers, Part Inventories and especially Instructions but I’ll take anything I don’t have! Prototype models, Pre-production sketches, and other unique items would be amazing to add.
I’ll wait while you check your attic…

Check out this beautiful collection of peanut butter birthday cookies. What a great idea for a design. It took us about a week, help from lots of friends, and several power pellets to get all this chomped. A special thank you to my lovely wife for hand making the Pac-Man brithday card and for knowing just what I like. 🙂 Available at Paradise Bakery.
2 Hot Wheels sized cars that look like they came from the Road Warrior movie. They have spikes and skulls and interchangeable weapons. Mattel 1994 on the bottom but no other markings. I would greatly appreciate it if you can help me figure out what these are.
Update: A visitor to the site let me know they are from a series of toys called “Hot Wheels Road Wars”. Below are a couple of pictures.
Another retro fan just reminded me about this old beast. It’ BIG TRAK! This thing was part space, part military, all awesome. There were so many combinations of things to do with this classic toy. It promoted creativity, planning, research, troubleshooting, and it could be used to bug the heck out of your sister. Like Kix it’s “Kid Tested and Mother approved.”
The Big Trak Commercial was submitted too.

I tried to embed the video but YouTube said no. Sorry
