Go back to your cassette days with the Star Lord’s Walkman from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’
Awesome mix on repeat.
If you’re over 30, surely seeing the Star Lord’s Walkman in Guardians of the Galaxy gave you a twinge of nostalgia. Cassettes were a pain in the butt with their unspooling tapes, but that bother was outweighed by the memories of the music we found thanks to them.
ThinkGeek sells a replica of the item that’s got all the retro goodness with modern functionality. You can connect your phone to it and use it as a speaker, or even record your own voice with it if you want to. It comes with the song “Come a Little Bit Closer” built-in, of course, because that’s of the theme of the Awesome mix. And it also comes with those good old fashioned headphones with the foam cups over the ears. You know the ones.
The Star Lord’s Walkman is $39.99 and in stock at ThinkGeek now. If you buy it, be prepared to be stopped in the street by strangers exclaiming, “Is that a Walkman?”
Why. yes. Yes, it is.
