“Hey, Mom, can I be an evil half-orc assassin for Halloween?”
“Sure, honey. Just don’t eat too much candy!”
Actually, I don’t think my parents ever shelled out for a “name brand” costume. My mom would make them herself from supplies she got at the thrift and craft stores.
There were at least two Jaws costumes released by Collegeville, as seen above via Babble and Plaid Stallions. There were also minor variations on each design such as different colored pants, etc. The Jaws 2 costume is below. The mask is the same.
Cop-Turd, to be exact. Nobody’s first choice, since Collegeville also made Transformers costumes.
The “flame retarded” joke is old, and yet still kind of funny.

Photon, believe it or not, was a short-lived live-action TV show based loosely on the game. It looks totally kooky and I wish I could get a hold of it. Lazer Tag spawned Lazer Tag Academy, an animated series that ran for one season, and also an animated movie.
