1979 Sears Christmas Catalog: Big Trak and Rom

The Big Trak was kind of lame, to be honest, but if I found one on my doorstep I would probably start weeping with glee. Why make me pre-program my space vehicle to go places instead of letting me remote control it the whole damn time? At least give me both options, right? I guess it gave kids the idea that they were computer programmers, and that in the future this experience would get them hired by NASA to drive a much bigger space vehicle around the fields and mountains of Mars. Hell, maybe the Mohawk Guy had a Big Trak!

Ah, Rom. Sir, you are no Micronauts.
