The 80s Weekly - Issue 27
Spring Break in the '80s, Def Leppard Hires an Orchestra and an Mega 80s Lootcrate Giveaway.
It’s Spring Break week for my family and many of you (I hope) will also be enjoying a break soon. Most people choose the beach as their destination for Spring Break so I thought it would be fun to curate some beach themed content in this week’s issue. If you can’t make it to the beach, you can always check out my recent VHS find Ocean Waves in the list below and bring the beach to your screen! Haha!
Cheers to some much needed “RNR” and stay rad, everyone! - Jason

Rediscover '80s Pop Culture
Congrats to Dixie N. from Tomah, WI for winning the Trapper Keeper Giveaway from Issue 26! I’ve got more Trapper Keepers in the prize vault so be on the lookout for another opportunity to win one in the future.
For Issue 27, the giveaway is a MEGA 80s Lootcrate! First, the winner will get the Best of the ‘80s Lootcrate featuring a Ghostbusters Proton Pack string bag, miniature Back to the Future hoverboard, Big Trouble in Little China comic, TMNT magnets, and a Golden Girls coffee mug. But this is a MEGA Lootcrate! There was too much empty space inside the box so I filled it with a Transformers minifigure pack, Optimus Prime and Megatron Fidget Its, a Glow-in-the-dark Funko Slimer Pez, a Rubik’s Edge, The Goonies on DVD and Uncle Buck/Great Outdoors on DVD. Overall, about a $75 retail value packed into one box! (check out the picture for everything included.)
