Olderst cartoons I remember , being born in 75, was The great Space Coaster, The Herculoids, remeber the triceretops(sp?) that shot the things out of
it's front horn?, hehe, and those 2, white goo looking guys, Shmoo's or whatever, lol. Of course, Saturday cartoons were a treat, Dungeons and
Dragons was The best Cartoon period. Of course Transformers, and the wanna be transformers, the "Go-bots, haha. GI joe Rocked as well, that I watched
everyday. Before I left for the school bus n the morning.
But, I have to say, I was more of a play with the action figures type of kid, than watch the shows.
Except for maybe GI Joe, I loved watching that, but things like Star Wars figures, (not a cartoon of course, except maybe some cheesy spioffs, and the
stuff they make now), but I loved the toys. I had The Darth Vader Case, with like 20 stormtroopers, haha, I was crazy. I think this shoulda been a
hint to my parents that I might have an addictive personality. I mean who needs 20 Stormtroopers. I'd set em all up in battle scenes, perfectly, and
god forbid if someone knocked one over, Grrrrrr!
I can't believe M.A.S.K. was mentioned so much. Man they did have some of the coolest toys.
But when the GI JOE action figures came out with the bendable elbows/shoulders/neck/knees. Man and all the vehicles, I had the big Cobra base. What
was that called, damn it's on the tip of my tongue. Fortress of Doom? heh, who remembers Tomax and Xamot, they'd finish each others sentences (they
were mind linked twins, ya know how it goes) got to be annoying, but they were cool figures.
I remember my first Gi Joe figure was Barbacue (I'm too young to remeber the bigger ones like the original GI Joe guy), hehe, but anyway he was like
an ex firefighter, I just liked his outfit,and he came with a few weapons, the more weapons and eccessories, the better the figure.
Then there were the hard to find ones like the original Snake eyes,or Stormshadow (the evil ninja in all white). You couldn't find them anywhere on
LI NY, but I remember going into a big outlet store in the sticks in Upstate NY, and they had racks, and racks, or all the rare figures, I was in
Transformers of course had amazing toys too. Megatron that turned into the gun. Oh the best was Soundwave he transformed into a walkman, and even the
little cassetes transformed into these flying bird like things if I remember.
