Recurrent Events 6/18/16: Weird Al Accordion-Shaped Boxset, 'MacGyver' Reshooting Pilot Episode, New Madballs Toyline

Welcome to your weekly source for retro pop culture news, the Recurrent Events! I hope you had a chance to enter the Back To The Future Yahtzee Giveaway this past week. Winner has been announced on Facebook and Twitter. Our partnership with Entertainment Earth continues to grow so be on the lookout for another contest soon!

Coming up next week, I hope to post a couple comic reviews including Madballs #3 and Back To The Future #1 (and possibly #2). I've also got a podcast planned hopefully in the near future with my pal Wyatt on our memories of Voltron along with a review of the new show.

Here are the articles posted this week on RD80s:

As if I needed another reason to go see the new Ghostbusters movie...here's confirmation of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man's return!
