Capsela, for you folks who were too young to remember, was this toy that consisted of clear, plastic balls that you could connect to each other to make large, ugly contraptions. It was like someone in the 50′s was making a movie about the future, found the guy in the prop department and said: “Hey, we got a scene that shows a kid playing with a toy. Make some sort of futuristic looking Erector set.”
Ah crap….Okay: Erector sets were toys that consisted of metal pieces that you could connect to each other to make large, ugly contraptions that had a good chance of doing serious injury. These things were full of nuts and bolts perfectly sized for swallowing, along with metallic plates that would take a prisoner minimal prep time to turn into a deadly shank.
