Toy Aisle Zen, 1987/1988: Rambo and G.I. Joe

Big Business 1988-4

Big Business 1988-2

Big Business 1988-3

Stills from the movie Big Business (1988), which I haven’t seen. Is Body Count a Rambo parody made specifically for the film? I can’t find anything on it. The toy store is New York City’s FAO Schwartz, once the oldest toy store in the U.S. and the scene of the famous Hanks-Loggia piano dance in Big. Owner Toys “R” Us  closed the store in July 2015 “to save money.”

That’s 14-year-old Seth Green in the shots above, by the way.

There’s more toy aisle goodness in 1984’s Silent Night, Deadly Night.

    Wow, super random! Weird, I don’t ever recall an extensive Rambo toy line; then again if it was released any time past ’85 then I was totally done with toys by then. Not to knock Rambo though, First Blood is one of my fav movies of all time. But just that one though, lol. =)
