These remind me of those old school glasses they’d give away in the 80s from Burger King and McDonalds, you remember those? Every summer BK and McD’s would battle over whichever movie license was cooler that year, and then put out some amazing drinking glasses for kids to endlessly barter over (the Empire Strikes Back glasses being especially coveted, as I recall). If it weren’t for their size in fact (the 80s ones were 12 oz), I wouldn’t even be sure these didn’t come from one of those marketing giveaways. Is it me or was everything basically better in those days? Now the SHREK glasses you get at 7-11 are plastic and fall apart after a couple machine loads, while I still have some of my old Yoda glasses stocked in mom’s cupboard somewhere. This set of four pint glasses features artwork from four classic Atari games: Asteroids, Centipede, Tempest, and Missile Command. Pick them up at Thinkgeek for $30.
