Other Your favorite childhood toys

Discussion in 'Gaming & Media' started by Just Kevin, Jun 9, 2014.

  1. This is to continue a discussion started in the TMNT thread.

    I just want to know, what was everyone's favorite toys as a child? This can include anything fun related including video games, board games, action figures, cars... whatever.

    I grew up in the 1980s and, for myself, toys were extremely important.. everything from Thundercats to Transformers, GI Joe to the old WWF thumb wrestling figures. I was fortunate enough to have just about everything.

    My top 5 favorites..

    1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures
    2. NES game console
    3. Masters of the Universe (He-Man) action figures
    4. Voltron action figures
    5. Centurions action figures

  2. Secret Seven and Famous Five books.
    Star Wars toys
    Master System, NES and Snes.

  6. I have a sister 5 years younger than myself.. I used to steal her My Little Pony figures and have them fight the He-Man figures lol
  7. Yeah it was cool as it had crossover sections where you could smash each other off the track. Just a great way to spend a day especially as kids and using your imagination to make it about F1 and crazy stuff lol.

  9. I watched every season of power rangers when I was 20 (23 now) out of boredom/guilty pleasure.

  17. Sorry for not tagging you bro.

    It's funny that all this stuff came up because I am in the midst of doing a different 80s cartoon theme every couple weeks with my avvy, sig, and profile cover. I did Thundercats first, TMNT now.. then every week or 2 it'll change.

    Anyway... it seems we had very similar experiences with childhood toys and the such. I can definitely relate to everything you listed.

    Silverhawks! Tally Hawk!

  18. Yeah, I get the feeling we are very similar and would get along quite well IRL actually.
    • Agree Agree x 1
  19. None. I don't believe in fun.

    Really though I can't even remember :hmm: I liked hotwheels quite a bit so probably those.
