Lazer Tag

A toy-line that has thrived for the past 25 years. But forget that cartoonish designed, berry colored bullshit from the 90s and 2000s. The only real LazerTag is from the 1980s, baby! Ah, yes, the sleek and trim, sci-fi future-tech aesthetic exclusive to that very special decade, evoking everything from Space Hunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone to Knight Rider’s KITT, Disney’s Star Tours ride, the Commodore 64 and the Nintendo Power Glove, and so on and so forth. There is something about the 80s that is so intrinsically...lasers.

LazerTag was and still is (for eBay surfers or loyal retainers) the absolute cherry opportunity to embody, quite literally, the toy-line experience at its 80s galactified best. You have the standard Starlyte pistol and StarSensor with Velcro harness, the basics. Additional StarSensors come in the form of the StarVest, StarCap and the fully incased, hard plastic StarHelmet. Lastly, to up the combat ante with long range precision, is the Starlyte Pro Riffle (available in both black and white).
