Favourite toy as a kid? I'll start it off. This was mine:
Great toy. Violent, fun, and undeniably cool.
I had the little car/tank thing that fired a bullet. That was pretty good too. https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5123/5320937155_6632e652b6_z.jpg
Lost the bullet almost immediately mind you. Had an ejector seat as well didn't it?
My mum made me an absolutely bitchin' birthday cake version of it as well.
Bloody loved Captain Scarlet, got the dvd boxset a while ago in anticipation of any future kids I might have.
we had every MASK toy. We used to made films of adventures and stuff.
The oil tanker and the big rig (Outlaw and Rhino) were the best.
My nephew and niece still play with it now. Rhino died though, doors snapped off :'(
INSANELY fucked up robin williams film
anyway, i had a really really big plastic Michaelangelo from TMNT
That film looks amazing though. LL Cool J! :D
Nearest I had was this: http://www.actiontoys.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/SKULL%20MOUNTAIN.jpg
I think my favorite was a Darth Vader figure I had, he just used to get up to tons of mad shit. Now I've grown up and I've gotta go do boring work instead :'(
Don't grow up, it's a trap.
There was a button that went "IT'S MORPHIN' TIME". Not Morphine time. That would have been a whole different ball game.
I remember the blade was quite hard plastic, you could probably kill someone if you put your mind to it.
I didn't though
I always wanted one of those as a kid, but my evil and cruel parents never bought me one. I mentioned this to a girlfriend a few years ago and she bought me one. It was shit.
some matchbox car thing that had a loop track that you could do crazy stunts with. had loads of the matchbox cars as a yute.
subbuteo too was great and also my sooty and sweep puppets, sweep even had a squeak. still have them somewhere.
they lived on a barge. I had a lot of Sylvanian Families but these guys were the best.
thought I'd counter all the boy swords.
just the best toys. the best.
MASK was awesome.
Apparently my family would watch me orchestrate plays with them. I once lost a stuffed yellow bird at a museum and they POSTED IT BACK TO ME. A different time. Also lost an alphabet ball in the serpentine #London and might have dropped my barbie in it too.
