If you were a kid in the 80's, you probably played with some of these.

For shame! No TMNTs?


Ah well. I like your list. I played with tons of GI Joes. There were wars going on between the Joes and Cobras in my household on a daily basis. Many good troops lost their lives... But it was fine since they were plastic and I could just have them come back to life for the next battle, which always took place at the GI Joe headquarters playset I owned. You'd think the Joes would setup a spot that was so open to attack all the time...

I can't remember if these were actually made in the '80s but I still have them.

Nice post! I had damn near every toy in the OP at some point. Great trip down memory lane.

If you guys want to take another nostalgia trip, check out WishBookWeb.com

It's a site devoted to Christmas catalogs. There are high quality scans of catalogs from many different years. Since I'm an 80's kid, those catalogs are my favorite.

I had all four TMNT with the squishy heads still in the package. My nephew just turned 6. So obviously he got em.

Ah man, Dina Sours. I had forgotten about those completely. One of my favorites.

Remember the Bionic Six? Cartoon and action figures. I remember there was a 900 number you could call to hear a recording of more adventures. Pretty sure I ran the phone bill up on those.

I'm not really sure if I can talk about some of the stuff we made as kids. Thank God for the Anarchists Cookbook, all of our real fun came from that thing.

As a child, I made cocktails out of vodka.

How about lazer tag? I had about 6 of these sets and we would play outside at night throughout the entire summer.



And my favorite

LOL - S&F, there's a few flashbacks for me among that lot. Here is another 'toy' I had in the 80's, somehow remaining my favorite of all time...

Thanks for the waves of nostalgia!

I could sit and pet Skeletor's felty purple cat for what felt like hours.

And Mask! Thank you! Totally forgot about Mask.

Yeah, I remember a lot of those. I especially remember Go-Bots, precursor to Transformers, and Masters of the Universe. Played Masters of the Universe a lot.

I also remember color forms. Spent hours on top of hours playing with them.Colorforms

You can't find color forms anymore. It has been 25+ years since I have seen any.


Surely, some of these shops have them?

www.colorforms.com...

I had a friend that had every one of the G.I.Joe figures you posted plus more. I had the A-10 thunderbolt and my friend had the Rattler. He even had the tomahawk. We had a blast growing up with these. he probably had close to 100+ G.I. Joes.
Good times had by all.

Skystriker was the F14 Tomcat right? There was a X23 also I think, but I didn't have it. I had a buddy that had the aircraft carrier. I liked all the snow figures too. Blizzard and Iceberg we a couple of my favorites too.

hasbro, crumbling out of liberal fear, cancelled the gi joe line because they fought terrrorists.
