Nope. Too old. Don't remember Dino Riders, but they look like fun, even now. I could get behind a toy like that which combined dinosaurs (my fave!) with robots (my fave!)
My favorite toy was a Secret Sam spy case. I loved it. It could shoot plastic bullets from inside the Secret Same briefcase. It could take spy photos from inside the briefcase. It could shoot plastic bullets (that really hurt!) and also a Secret Sam 'rocket' that could send super secret messages. We were little espionage weenies, and imagined ourselves to be spooks employed by the alphabets. Such was the socialization of my era. Imagine that. The alphabets were the good guys. Whoof.
I have never shut up about this toy, it was actually my brother's Christmas gift, but I played with it every chance I got. Too bad we have taken away this aspect of creative play. The periscope was so cool. There was also a metal replica of a lugger pistol that would have any child arrested and tried as a terrorist now.
Spy vs. spy was one of the best role playing games we had....and yes we only had our bodies and props, nothing media based to work with. Often the games lasted for days and covered several neighbourhoods. We would go at it all day and we pick up where we left off the next day. Imagination is a terrible thing to loose.
