Beatles' Bleach?

Ooh, Rubber Soul van.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

I like them! Especialy the white album truck.

If there was a Who Magic Bus I would totally buy it.

I would also buy a Trans Europe Express train car from Lionel.

That would be cool. They should come out with psychedelic hot wheel track for that one instead of the regular orange.

The MMT bus at least makes sense. Not sure why the White Album is represented by a truck. Though not having a Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Van is a missed opportunity. Unless that IS a van. Looks like a hearse to me, which maybe...never mind.

That said, I've bought a lot of useless Beatles crap in my time, so far be it from me...

A revolver squirt or rubber dart gun seems like a natural choice.

They mainly look great, but the price point is bullshit.

I've been getting posts on Facebook from some Beatles sites where they're selling limited runs of t-shirt designs. I like some of the shirts but the prices are ridiculous. I'll go for a Hushdrops collectible any day.

If only they had those back in the day. I got tired of hitting my little brother with the regular orange ones.

Yeah, things like t-shirts and Hot Wheels have a, to my mind, "don't spend any real money on them" connotation - to the point where both appear to more or less fall out of the sky (I don't remember ever buying my kids Hot Wheels and yet somehow we have an endless supply - now they want to jack up the price?!?!).

We probably should have merchandised my old band during our period of existence.

My mom hit my brother and me with them after she kept breaking wooden spoons on our butts.

Empty nest syndrome. Need something to step on barefoot/slip on and break one's neck.

When you get to a certain age you want to reconnect with elements of your childhood. I don't think there's anything wrong with that in moderation - but then I'm ok because I can do it vicariously through my son.
