CLASSIC COMMERCIALS: Starbird By MB Electronics

This weirdly-sedate, rather sterile commercial just doesn't convey how cool the Starbird really was. An electronic toy with flashing laser blasts AND engine noises? Surely that was the Best Thing Ever! It's also interesting to note that the ad is designed for adults, presumably taking a tip from the very cool Micronauts commercials of the same era...


  1. I had a Starbird as a kid and loved it! One of my all time favorites.

  2. Yeah, a kid in my neighbourhood had it. Very cool.
