Activision's Super Hit Pack via HES | Noah Optimus Prime Fox greets the world

Upon further investigation as to why I'd never heard of the Super Hit Pak cart for the Atari 2600, it turns out it was an Australian release with HES around 1995. Seems they were trying to eek out a little more bang-for-the-buck with a multi-game cart a few years after the 2600 was officially decommissioned in January 1992.

Among HES' 2600 offerings were: Challenge, Hot Action Pack, Mega Funpack, Pigs N' Wolf, Rad Action Pack, Smash Hit Pack, Sports Action Pack, Star Warrior, Super Action Pack, Super Hit Pack and Wall Defender.

Moving on to Super Hit Racks...
Wow, how time flies! Last I knew, Megan Fox was bent over fixing Sam Witwicky's beater Camaro a few scenes before Mr. Witwicky was cursing giant robots for trashing his front lawn. Now she's popping out kids with Brian Austin Greene.

Um... isn't he the dancey-dance nerd from the original Beverly Hills 90210? I hope Brandon & Steve appreciate the irony of David being paired with Tori Spelling, in the 90s, when Jenny Garth and Shannen Doherty were the obvious hotties and now he's "with" Megan Fox.
