In 1986 I was way more interested in Susanna Hoffs than anything else. In fact it'd be fair to say I was interested in absolutely nothing BUT Susanna Hoffs for a good proportion of that year.
That hasn't changed, however these days I've at least found other interests to occupy some of my time. So today a package arrived on my doorstep containing (you can see where this is going)... more lead!

The full set in absolutely great nick and ready to absorb my attention when it should be focused elsewhere (not unlike a certain female American vocalist). Whoever owned these prior to them arriving at Chez Millsy has clearly tried to replicate the original paint jobs on as they appeared on the reverse of the packaging, gorgeously painted by Colin Dixon.
For once I'm going to do exactly the same and paint my set as faithfully to the original box art as I possibly can. It'll be an interesting diversion and a wee bit of history too.
Now if you'll excuse me I have a an old VHS tape of Bangles clips to watch. Again. Go on, shoo! Susanna and I need some alone time...
