Whee! Howard the Duck! :biggrin:

Here's the duck himself, with a pin and the uncut DVD of the infamous 1986 live-action movie - the first Marvel Comics-based movie ever made.

I also have the Commodore 64 computer game from the 1980s (it was a sequel to the 1986 movie), but it's in storage with the computer itself at the moment. Here's a look at its rather awesome UK box-art, though;

Unfortunately, the UK tape version lacked the intro-sequence that the US disk version had (a typical practise for Activision at the time), which is a shame, because the game has nice sprite-work, if nothing else, and the intro is pretty well-done if you've seen the movie. :tongue:

Looks like Donald Duck With a detective costume,And why uncut? Are you still too young for that?

Funnily enough, back in the 1970s, decades before Disney bought Marvel, Disney applied legal pressure about Howard's original design for similar reasons. The plush is a modern-day Marvel Cinematic Universe one, though.

And why uncut?
Uncut means uncensored. The original release cut out a bunch of footage and it made less sense as a result.

Are you still too young for that?
I'm old enough to have watched the original release as a kid in the 1980s and to have been there to buy the tie-in computer game on cassette-tape. ;)) I'm probably one of the only TamaTalkers to know what those even are. :lol:

But if you are no longer a young adult? You´re going through the mid-life crisis!

Also...

Noticed that basic support of Xenforo/Tamatalk is working on Retrozilla.

The design is quite broken due to basic HTML5 support. but i wish they didnt botch it up.

i think the more important question here is why are you running win98
Just look at Windows NT 4.0 and you see what i am running on a VM.

The lastest browser for it was Firefox 2,Opera 10.63. However those browsers were too outdated as those didnt support HTML5 (also on opera,it may be basic.) and TLS 1.2/1.3 (Opera supported basic support for it,only supporting TLS 1.2)

Also i know that accessing Google in older browsers causes old browser mode in main page and more recently mobile search engine. Youtube doesnt seem to work in Retrozilla. turning over a white window.

The only thing we had to do,was to use a flash player,but since flash is no longer around and Flash Player Youtube was long retired,i guess no youtube for older windows.
