Preferred powered protection of the ’80s (which century’s ’80s is up to you).
So this is happening on Kickstarter:
Go and back it because it is cool. Cactus Jack in particular is calling my name.
I’ve already got some ThunderChild figs; it’s all good stuff.
It might have gone something like this:

The best four space-poc years of the 1980s:
The Day After (1983)
Warlords of the 21st Century (1982)
