Good question

I had a few Starwars was cool back in the day (it be nice if Hasbro grew up a little since then and made more articulated SW figs.)
I had a couple of Heman figs (I like what 4 hoursemen did with those a hundred times better than the ones i had back in the day)
My brothers had GIJoe's (we use to play with themand the starwars together vadar choked most of the joes to death.)
One of my Bros had ThunderCatts figures (They where way cool in their day 4 horsemen we summon you to make these cool again)

But my 4 favorite Toys would have had to been TF's Jetfire / Wheel-Jack / Soundwave/ and Starscream and I didn't even have the latter 2 I had to go over to a friends and play with his.

I was and still am all about the Transformers. I think my favorite ones are Soundwave and Megatron (Optimus with an Honorable Mention). Soundwave still leads the pack since he had all those little cassettes that would change into his little helpers.

I really liked GI Joes as kid. I remember getting the Dreaknocks for my birthday one year quiet vividly. I think they came with a motorcycle thing that I promptly broke.

I also really liked the Voltron my brother had. It was the good ol' die cast 50lb version and kicked all sorts of butt.

We were not allowed to have that toy in school because some kid went and hit another kid with it.

We also had these little robots I believe they were called ding-a- lings. They were either wind up or they worked on bateries. They had parets of a trac they rode on and they powered up larger robots. They shot missles that could take an eye out.

I read an article about Major Matt Mason in Toyfare and it looked awesome. They showed a few pictures(Mason, The green alien and some equpment)and I remember how good it al looked. Do you still have any TMB?

The sad truth is that shortly after I became interested with Major Matt Mason and his pals, I and my brother became interested in BB Guns and Fire....I think the story tells itself from here.
