Classic Link from Legend of zelda. He was great. I also loved how he was drawn in the manual and on nintendo trading cards.

I loved the way that the classic link looked, not as much in the 2nd game, but the others I still liked and waiting to see about skyward sword (baggy pants aren't my favorite). But I am still wating for an articulated link, samus and other nintendo characters like the Megaman/Rockman and Protoman kits. those kits are great and have a perfect old school yet new feel to make one perfect fig.

I myself have two of the primary female game characters from the Toy Biz Video Game Super Stars line from the late 1990s. I've got both Claire Redfield (RE:2) and Jill Valentine (RE:1). The only others I've got from the same line are some of the creatures that comes with them or as a part of the first game. I am planning to make a diorama to display them.

Honestly, if some company had released Zeke and Julie from Zombies Ate My Neighbors, I would have bought them without thinking twice.

I had a statue/trophy i got back in the late 80s of link fighting an enemy and on the bottom was a sticker you could fill out saying when you defeated that enemy. I liked Nintendo's marketing back then: happy meal toys, cereals and such. I'd have to say probably the mario 3 happy meal toys lol.

The Strogg Tank figure from Resaurus' Quake II line. That thing is huge, super detailed, and I love how his shoulder-mounted missile launcher tracks along his line of sight when you turn his head. His working shock absorber feet are also super cool, even if they are prone to breaking.

Hi, I'm new here. I have a pretty extensive toy collection, both new and vintage, loose and MOC, as well as a decent Vintage video game memorabilia/merchandise collection. My favorite old school game character is Q Bert. I have a large Q Bert merchandise collection, with some stuff I've only seen one time (my Q Bert dart gun set for one). I also collect Pac Man, Mario and Donkey Kong stuff, as well as a collection of carded Space Ace and Dragons Lair Laramie rack toys from the 80's, and some Zelda, Punchout, and other memorabilia. Some pretty obscure pieces...

Oh yeah, there's TONS of Mario Merch out there, vintage and newer and I have a huge Q Bert collection. I'll have to post a pic sometime.

My vintage Q Bert collection is up to 50 pieces. Scored some really rare stuff as of late.
