In 1986 Kenner released the 3rd and final wave of the Super Powers Collection which included Plastic Man. The Super Powers Collection Plastic Man action figure features a unique "Power Action Stretching Neck" action mechanism and unlike the other figures in the collection has an articulated waist! Plastic Man stands slightly taller than the other figures in the collection... maybe because he is stretching?

Part of this Complete Quarantine Breakfast!

Trapped at home watching cartoons all day, it's time for some breakfast so I have decided to eat the Saturday morning breakfast of choice from my Gen-X youth... Cap'n Crunch with Crunch Berries! Part of this nutritious complete breakfast of toast, bacon, sausage, eggs, cheese, pancakes, fruit, vegetables, orange juice, and of course milk!

You know how all the cereal ads say, "a good part of this nutritious -or complete -breakfast?" This phrase is so prominent that we need no other references. Every cereal ad spouted that phrase over a huge heaping bowl of the product along with 2 slices of buttered toast and a glass of orange juice. Some scenes even include a glass of milk [more milk!] or other breakfast foods like eggs and bacon, sausage or ham! Generation X was so inundated with cereal commercials during Saturday morning cartoons that if we needed a secret pass code to identify each other, “Part of this nutritious breakfast” would be it.
