The Weekly Links: Billy Dee Teases Lando Comeback, New Ghostbusters Trading Cards, Rambo For A Day

Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Links, your weekly source for the best '80s content on the web! I've had another fun week that's including toy reviews, t-shirts, and a terrible selection of '80s movies.

Netflix seemingly fell asleep this month on adding some new '80s movies to its streaming service. They did land a few which I noted in the Netflix '80s Fix on Monday. My pal Wyatt came on board to present the next toy review for RD80s and Rad Retro Stuff with his take on Bandai's Luigi Action Figure Set. Watch and win, as we will be giving the figure away to one lucky winner early next week! Inspiration also hit me this week as I debuted another RD80s exclusive t-shirt design featuring a mashup of M.A.S.K. and G.I. Joe. The recent movie rumors went straight to my head so check out the M.A.S.S. Device crowdfund shirt available now.

Plus, I also had time to put together an article for UnderSccopFire! this week about the 11 Things We Want To See In Spaceballs 2: The Search For More Money. Spaceballs is one of my favorites from the '80s and I had to explore what needs to be included if they make a sequel. And if you haven't noticed today, I teamed up with Lee and Linz from Pop Rewind to publish 10 '80s-Themed Valentines We'd Like To Receive. Be sure to visit Pop Rewind for there 5 valentines and also visit the RD80s Facebook and Twitter for some additional ones!

My favorite video this week was an amazing bachelor party event that featured the groom in his favorite movie role. The short documentary shows home movie footage of the friends as boys mixed in with the plan to turn their friend Dana into Rambo. They reenact scenes from several films and spend week's preparing for the ultimate Rambo Day. The video does contain strong language so it's NSFW. If your a fan of the films though, you've gotta check it out!
