    hi there,

    I recently seen 'Super 8', the latest Spielberg movie and saw that guy at the fuel station with a walkman, an TPS-L2, the version released before the final Walkman logo.

    I was also capturing frames from the final scene of The Terminator and TheLion remembered me that at the begginning of this movie appears another walkman, so I finished capturing frames from this movie and from Super 8 and added to my website.

    However, I post here some frames so you can see what walkmans are.

    I remember another post about walkmans and movies in thos forum; do you remember another famous movie with walkmans (apart from 'pretty woman' Back to the future' and those two?)

    Super 8:

    The guy from the fuel station and his brand new TPS-L2

    Sarah Connor recording voice notes on a toshiba ┬┐KT-P22?

    I'll update with another shot.

    Hello there,

    I've just updated my 'Extras' page with three new movies: Another 48Hrs, A view to a kill and Guardians of the galaxy.

    In 48hrs, eddie murphy has an unidentified JVC.

    In a view to a kill some spies are recording a secret conversation with a WM-F5, which BTW doesn't have any recording feature [​IMG]...

    In guardians of the galaxy it appears the popular TPS-L2.

    Tom Hanks was sporting a sick shiny walky in The Man with One Red Shoe, I believe it was a Toshiba KT AS10 which was smaller than the cassette it played! I had one that I found at a thrift store, that I used all my senior year in high school up until it died a decade ago. image.jpg
