    Was in town today and saw in a charity shop...Manta Force! Jesus I've not seen them in ages! Anyway I was just wondering what you guys/gals used to play with (keep it clean, no jokes about finding a space rocket in your mothers drawer!) when you were young.

    A few of what I had along with the likes of He-Man, Transformers and that:
    Super Naturals - I thought these were awesome when I was a kid, guess I was wrong!
    The Real Ghostbusters - Humans Ghosts - Fantastic toys, I had all of the Fright series when I was younger, no idea what happened to them at all. The monsters and ghosts where even cooler.
    Boglins
    Monster In My Pocket - I think these came with a strip of bubble gum.
    Mighty Max
    Garbage Pail Kids - Not toys but stickers and cards, these were banned in many schools over here for some reason.

    There was also this purple monster with a chain but I can't remember what they were called.

    Same thing here ... although I've had my youth after the fall of socialism, many things weren't available.

    Man, lego = good times, I had like 2 dustbins full of the stuff!
    Also remember SECTAURS! http://www.x-entertainment.com/messages/323.html Won some in a drawing competition when I was about 8 or so lol.
    Also had a ton of MASK figures, He-Man figures (with both he-man and skeletor castles wewt).

    Lets all sing it... MASK CRUSADERS, WORKIN ALL THE TIME, FIGHTIN CRIME!!!
    Oh yeah I loved Jason and the wheeled warriors too, awesome. I think cartoons nowadays aren't a patch on the old stuff.

    [-EDIT-]
    I almost forgot Ulysses http://www.jedisparadise.co.uk/index.htm?c...Ulysses31.htm&1 This was one of the best cartoons around at the time, way ahead of it's time and the figures were awesome (if hard to find).

    BTW if anyone has all the Ulysses episodes (I think the first series had 20 or so, not sure how many series there were) give me a PM I'd love to get them. I remember when dj sent me all the D&D episodes.. more good times.. UNI!!

    [-EDIT2-]

    Series 1 had 26 episodes!

    Lego technic here.
    This being said I was given a toolkit for Christmas when I was 5, far more fun was had taking everything apart and figuring out how it worked/was put together.

    Ghostbusters too (I got busted the other day as the blue flag from the car was apparently the thing that clogged up the gutters). I had loads of this stuff.

    Transformers goes without saying.

    I think I had the odd toy from somewhere else (I found a bucky 'o hare model the other day) but it was mainly my toolkit/computers that were my favourite toy.

    yeah lego technic was the bomb. i figured out how basic mechanical stuff works with that.

    i liked to create my own car systems, not worrying about the shell but the basic chassis etc.

    See that hole in your wall?
    I've still got mine as well as a bunch of other old toys from the original series. My mother wouldn't let me sell them or trash them because she said they'd be valuable in the future. Now there's a large box taking up space in my apartment that I need to get rid of.

    I also played with TMNT before power rangers. I remember having a figure that shot pizza discs or something.

    Sometime after power rangers, but before the N64/PS1 phase, I had assloads of LEGOs.

    Does anyone remember a figure that came in a trash bag?
    The main point was the bag dissolved in water.

    I had ALOT of toys, lego, brio, TMHTs, Ghostbusters, Boglins, mini-Boglins, sticklebricks, bucky o'hare, etc.

    I also remember a projector of the ghost busters but I couldn't find a image. Oh and Follow Muzzy was funny too.
