Yea BraveStarr was pretty awesome! I also liked Silverhawks and Visionaries. Plus all of the usual HeMan, GI Joe, Thundercats and Transformers. I remember being able to have these huge battles with all my figures and both sides consisted of all types of figure lines. Ahhh the good old days :cry:

Though call, I started with Playmobil (actually as a toddler I first had bendies called Playflixies). In the magical Playmobil world I absolutely loved the western theme and the space theme. Around 1983 the A-Team rocked my world, so I mostly played with my 3 3/4" A-Team. In 1985 I finally had the He-Man and Skeletor 2-pack with story cassette (tape ;) ), had many battles with them. Loved M.A.S.K. and Bravestarr, but never had those toys...
In 1987 I became passionate about wrestling, well WWF back in those days. It wouldn't be until 1990 that WWF figs by Hasbro would be available in my country: Belgium. By that time my parents thought I was too old for toys. To my huge surprise my parents bought me 2 figs from a fun fair in 1991; Hulk Hogan and what I thought was Hercules... Well the figs were bootlegs in MOTU-style and 'Hercules' turned out to be Big John Studd. They were bootlegs, but I absolutely LOVED them!!! ... And STILL do :badgrin:

However favorite toy as a kid has to be my Mattel Captain Future 3-pack :D

I'd have to say that my absolute favorite toys as a kid were:
1. He-Man
1. G.I. Joe
2. Bravestarr
3. Ninja Turtles

There's really no way I can choose between He-man & G.I. Joe so they toe for 1st.

Strangely enough, I have to say my favorite was probably the original Ian Malcolm figure from Jurassic Park series 2.

The dude from "Jingle All the Way." Dude was awesome... can't even remember what he was called... Maybe Captain Amazing, something really basic like that.

I was geeked on so many toys growing up, gotta say that star wars were my first love, followed by gi joe and he-man. I had a bunch of the ljn wwf wrestlers too. Always had an action figure or 2 in my pockets.

G.I.Joe is a in the heart classic but there was a line from Fisher price from the Early 80's adventure figures they where so cool they had vans, dirt, bikes, camping, tents, canoes, skydivers with real working parachute shock was very cool . (these figures were 3.75 G.I.Joe size specifically a figure that had a cowboy hat green lens sunglasses painted stubble and a red long sleeve shirt blue pants and brown boots I think Dagger actually has one in his trade list very cool !) because it looked like my dad it was awesome I actually found it in my stuff I had stored away when I moved back to Hawaii .
And secret wars wolverine still have him too :D
