Dino-Riders, yeah I remember those, never had any though I watched the cartoon.
Guys that could like communicate with dinosaurs through electronic means as I recall, they like...rode 'em around with battle gear on them.
Pretty good figures.

Never got any either, but "M.A.S.K" had some of the coolest figures/vehicles I'd ever seen - everyone had a helmet, ha. The vehicles were the shit.

One more I remember that I actually DID have and quite liked, was some big purple blobby ghost thing from "the real ghostbusters" series, it had one big eye, and if you squeezed the creature, the eyeball would shoot out, evil dead style.

M.A.S.K stuff ruled. I've still got the Venom team black pick up truck one on my shelf. Still got a Knight Rider car too.

I was always a big fan of movie/TV tie in stuff had Karate Kid figures, Rambo, Aliens and a bunch of WWF characters, Masters Of The Universe, Tranformers, G.I Joe. I'd love to have some of that stuff back again but I destroyed most of 'em having wars :D

What were the cars that hand animal claws come out of the tires? Had one of those I loved too.

I remember being pretty big on Star Wars stuff too. Some of the ones I had as a kid must be worth a bit now. But yeh I blew a bunch of shit like that up with fireworks after school.

Loved the realistic looking water pistols/cap guns. Most of them ended up being pulled from the shelves after a bunch of robberies made it onto the news... never got that myself. I be like "Fuck off dude thats a water pistol".

I had Bobby the henchman from the first Burton Batman film.
Melted his face with a lighter, to try make him look like Freddy.
Wish I still had that guy.

...and the Armatron, fuck dammit!

Toys!

Popples and Boglins!!!

I also played the hell out of my She-ra toy set that came equipped with castle and horse. My brother had Skeletor's castle so we staged some pretty awesome battles.

My Mom gave our He-man stuff away to a poor family up the road, which is good, but a small part of me still wishes she had kept them :)

thinking about all the awsome stuff i had as a kid that my parents must have thrown away - i vowed never to do that to my kid.

all of his toys that ne no longer plays with - if they have any pop cultural or potentially emotional-nostalgical significance - i pack them away and put them in storage.


all the other stuff gets donated to the school or thrift stores.
