lets take a stroll down memory lane

Postby therapist » Wed Oct 07, 2009 6:55 pm

So guys I figured we could all talk about those old figures we used to own and memories surounding them. Rather we were denied a toy that once we got older (nerdier) we just had to have or just a toy we can never get rid of let's just share are fondest memories of are childhood.


Mine has to be now after having all the best MLs and DCs I find myself wanting old power rangers and pre ML toybi toys

I miss M.U.S.C.L.E. Men. Those things were awesome. I used to love M.A.S.K. toys, but looking back they just suck.

botsmaster. still have about half of them, but used to have 95% of them.

c.o.p.s. some of the gratest figures ever. loved buttons.

i did love mask toys.

also, those toys with the air pump in the vehicles that would float a styrofoam ball.... don't remember what they are called.

exo squad........... oh my....... loved the figures.

i would put joes and vintage star wars, but i still have a good portion of those.

sadly, a major reason i don't have many anymore is lack of room, so i will have to pass. thanks a lot for the offer though.

Starwars goes without saying, I still have most of the vintage ones in the loft (missing 8 of last 16).

M.A.S.K was wicked I loved those toys.

Centurions- power extreme.

TMNT the originals still got all four turtles, sewer bike and turtle den (missing a coulpe of parts).

Oh and of course thundercats, my mum gave all my stuff away so i'm busy making new ones.

Action force (later renamed GI JOE).

He-Man got some of these lately and I so don't remeber them having battle actions.

Manta force at least I think it was called that one massive space ship with loads of others inside it and like inch tall men.

I think that's it for now....... yep can't think of anymore at the moment.


OOOOH, monster in my pocket and yes muscle men were great fun so simple but brilliant to play with.

I don't know the name. I don't know that figure run very well. It doesn't matter though because I went to the store yesterday and it had sold. I sea them pretty often there so if I sea some again I'll pm you.

The muscles figures that used to come in the trashcans in the 80s? Had them. Mostly Transformers, I didn't have a massive amount of them since they cost alot compared to GI which i had a good number of. Most holiday memories had Transformers in them more than GI joe.

The old Superfriends action figures. You squeezed Superman's legs and he'd punch with his arms... squeeze Aquaman's arms and his legs would kick.

My best toy memory has to be getting that huge (well to a small child) Transformers base that transformed into a robot. Normally it was a rocket and base with a train track thing with a tram that ran around it. No clue what it was called.

Oh and you can't forget Go-Bots. I had a lot of them, too.

That was Omega Supreme. He was a really expensive toy too. I remember for my 6th birthday getting Optimus Prime, my dad stopped and got him at Hills on the way home from work that day. As usual he was always waiting to the last minute lol.
