Coolest figures you found that u thought lost

Postby therapist » Fri Apr 30, 2010 12:52 pm

So what are some figures you have found in your garage or in your house or wherever that you had thought lost for good.

For me it has to be when I started cleaning out the garage. I found

-Almost complete Sentinel BAF (with other parts I had I was able to complete it)

-Beast wars Transmetals 2 cheetor

-toybiz Meanstreak (this was my favorite toy when I was little).

I found my 4 vintage turtles along with the bike and the sewer playset in my dad's attic, I thought they'd been given away years ago.

Roller from a G1 OPtimus prime. We found him in some railroad stuff in the attic. He has no fading, even the decals, and even has the flash from the molding machines till on his tires.

I found an old police robot I used to love when I was little. I still have no idea what the series of toys it is that he's from. I got him from a KB Toys around 15 years ago. There were 4 of them, they stood about 8 to 10 inches tall, and they were cyborg style police officers. There was a red, green, blue, and black one. I got the black one because he looked like robocop but had this kick bum buz saw you could attach to his arm... anyone have any idea what the series is?

My dad found a figure I repainted when I was 9. It was a Cobra Officer I painted red and put an old Han Solo trench coat I used a marker to make black. It fell in an old box of papers about 22 years ago and he came across it last Xmas. I also found all the MASK toys I loved and thought were long gone about 2 years ago.

I loved those things. I used to get a container of them at the Rite aid drug store in the mall nearly every time we went. I remember those were expensive back in the 80s so i didn't get them often as I'd like. They're worth a good bit online amazingly enough.

I always loved the weird characters and designs. I think they tried relaunching them not long ago but they didn't catch on.

The new ones were good but not as good. The new ones were more cartoony and less detailed. They also had a lot of ones in preposed possitions wich is a pian in the bum.
