these were awesome, made by tomy who never dissapoints. Of the cubes i had as a kid, somehow the only one that didn't get lost was IMO the most borring. It has a blue base and inside the cube was a helicopter that moved back and forth when you wound it from the bottom, then you tried to flick little ball baring at the copter and see how many can magnetically stick to the belly of it. I've looked online for info on them but i don't think i've ever found anything. Which is surprising b/c i feel that they were great toys.

I actually still have a working Shootin' Gallery Skill Square. Wish I could've kept all of my toys!

There are several different versions of "Skill Squares". They (Skill Square) were the first followed by "Starcade". They were essentially the same game format but with an updated housing. Some of the late models were branded under "Coleco". Same toy but different brand
