The TPS-L2 was released July 1, 1979 and originally cost $200. You could also use the Walkman to record, using its microphone. It also had two headphone jacks, so that two people could listen at the same time.
‘Guardians 2’ pulled in over $200 million in its opening weekend, $140 million of which was grossed domestically in America, Variety reports. To celebrate, James Gunn took to Facebook to personally thank his fans for their support.
The post is long and heartfelt. It covers everything from the box office success, to Gunn’s cinema history and his childhood of feeling isolated and struggling with mental health.
“I would be lying if I said I don’t get distracted by the numbers. The first thing I do in the morning is roll over in bed and check my phone for the morning box office reports,” Gunn began.
“But, in the end, it’s not what matters to me. I write this now to let you know, but also to remind myself. Because I’m human and I sometimes forget.”
