cool Childhood toys

Ok, I started this on PT, but lets get it going here too. Name your favorite childhood toys. Mine were Sit n Spin, legos, shrinky dinks, tinker toys, and lincoln logs. What were/are yours?

Is it English? Does it moo?

Legos rock! or at least they used to, nowadays, they're damn expensive and it's almost as if they've lost a step.

Other favs were Hot Wheels (duh), GI Joe and of course, Transformers!!

So I'm a kid in a man's body... so sue me

That's what I'm talking about... but they have to be the original TF's up through gen 4 or 5 before they got into the whole Beast Wars crap... even the PowerMasters, HeadMasters and those ones in the humaniod shells were a bit too much.

The latest incarnation aren't bad, but they just ain't the same as the TF's of old.

:eek: :WH: :D

I had Voltron.....That was hella cool. I had both the lion ones and the newer ones, the machines. Those were pretty cool. GI Joes, and the Thundercat action figures were da bomb. So was the He-man stuff I had. You could make em all fight eachother and have the battle of the century. (sigh) Those were the days.....:D

I have a full tank of Unleaded...
1994 PGT
5 liters and 12 cylinders of fury....

Lego's, the big GI Joes, Hot Wheels/Matchbox cars, Rock-em Sock-em Robots, can't remember what it was really called but it was an Evil Kanivel bike that you crank up on a little base thingy, hit the launch button and watch it go. It would do wheelies and you could make ramps and jump stuff.

I used to also have a big place under the deck when I lived in Utah. We used to build all sorts of towns and stuff for the matchbox cars. Hell, we'd turn on the hose and have rivers running all over the place. It was pretty cool. I bet If I went back there today, I'd be able to find aboot a hundred matchbox cars that have been buried for the last 10 or so years...
