My older brother had one of these in the mid 1960s, back when Mattel was unquestionably the Rolls Royce of toy companies.

I had one of these. I will never forget the smell of cooking plastic and wondering what the hell I'll do with this dumb little boat I'd made.

The key to Vac-U-Forming was absolutely not using their molding forms - making your own was the fun part. Had to get the heat just right and pump the vac like hell to make it worth the trouble in the first place, so why waste the effort on somebody else's ideas?

I had one, along with the Creepy Crawlers add-on that allowed me to cook rubber insects, too.

Looks like they're making Plastigoop again. Pity I've long since parted with the equipment.
