The "Catch-(Mostly)-All" Toy Thread

For all the lines not covered in our themed forums. Think Thundercats, Ghostbusters, Voltron, Wrestling, Doctor Who, Power Rangers, Video Game Licenses, TV & Film Licenses... do I need to go on or did you have it figured out before I even started?

I'm planning a real toys for tots haul this year....I think lots of gi joes. I love giving to toys for tots. I always make sure to get things with lots of figures in it. Joe multi packs....cause it always seem weird when people just get a single joe, splurge and get two.
If you infuse your reality with positivity, victory is imminent.

I didn't know there were non-bear Care Bears.

On My Little Ponies, these are the awesomest ones I've seen:

They're the Care Bear cousins. :) BrightHeart Raccoon, Swiftheart Rabbit, Braveheart Lion, etc... They were fun. ^^
The My Little Ponies-- I linked to this site earlier http://www.thetoyzone.com/2009/little-p ... pony-mods/ and they're mostly by Mari Kasurinen. That's funny. I didn't notice until I went to her site and started looking that they're almost all hers. [grin]

I LOVED this doll I had when I was little... Magic Nursery something-or-rather. I had a toddler that had blond braids you could pull to make longer or shorter. She had a heart on her cheek that turned to a star when you kissed it. She had blue eyes. Her name was Samantha. Never got into Care Bears much or My little Ponys. I love Polly Pockets, back when they were only an inch or so tall. man I had a ton of those things....

and Legos. I still love Legos. [smile]

Was it a dude with propellers and stuff?

I enjoyed MASK as a kid too.


Ditto!! That 25th Trakker was an evil tease.

A lot of my toy memories involve being at the stores more than the toys.


True for me somewhat, too.
It was sometimes overwhelmingly awesome.

-I would kill for a vintage shot of an 80s Sears toy aisle.


I know, right????!!!!

Can't believe no photos or video footage exists of 80's toy stores/aisles.
There had to be local news puff pieces about the Christmas shopping season . . . SOMETHING!

Seeing the Flagg for $60 at Wal-Mart


Don't think I ever saw that outside of the catalog/booklets.

Although the toys were slightly on the cheap side (Mattel?! NEVER! LOL) I loved the Captain Power toys.

I got several of the figures, and really wanted the "Power On" playset, but had to make do with going around and plugging in a yellow or white Christmas string light into his back. Good times.

Legos are awesome.

I got sucked in Coast Guard Legos earlier this year. Love the orange pieces.

Captain Power was awesome! I never understood the video interaction thing.

I still have a couple of those around. I put the Snare Arm with my Super Powers and I got this cool little swamp playset at the aforementioned Mister C's that I still have somewhere.

Yeah, on his shoulders. Every few years I remember his name and forget it again. He was made up of thirty vehicles - and there's a nice big one of him, but I just had the one where they were like erasers.

I've looked off-and-on for a long time. You're right about video footage from a local news thing, there has to be that somewhere.

Don't think I ever saw that outside of the catalog/booklets.


I remember a lot of toys that I saw at stores and never got. I remember when my parents gave me choices, and looking back I chose poorly, like Metroplex or the Joe Swamp-masher. I remember one time being at Springfield TRU and wanting NightForce Joe stuff for my birthday, but I wasn't allowed to get the vehicles because my grandmother correctly identified them as repaints I already had. (I still am a sucker for repaints like that too).

Oh, I just thought of an awesome childhood toy...
