    I was a child of the 80's, and I spent hours playing with toys like Transformers, Legos, and my all time favorites:

    The Atari 2600 was also a favorite. I loved games like "Pitfall" and "Adventure."

    I remember M.A.S.K. ! I loved that cartoon and had a couple of the action figures. Good times.

    I too was a kid in the 80's who loved action figures much to his father's chagrin: Star Wars, Transformers, GI Joe, Ninja Turtles, He-Man etc. They were also the best versions of all those toys.

    A while ago I was looking at He-Man toys on eBay and saw loose figures going for $300 a pop. Makes me wish I'd hung onto some of them.

    Nothing any past generation of children ever had, or any future generation of children will ever have, can compare to how cool Hot Wheels were when they first came out. They just don't have any frame of reference to comprehend it.

    Growing up, my dad was a preacher. Some parents at his church decided that Star Wars was too violent for their kid and gave me his entire collection of Star Wars figures. I must have had 50+ figures (I specifically remember Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and R5D4), the Millennium Falcon, the Hoth play set, and Jabba the Hutt. I have no idea what happened to all of them. :(

    I remember getting this bad boy for Christmas one year and totally flipping out. I actually wanted the Superman game, but this was almost as good.

    When I was a kid we were so poor that my mother used to cut the pockets out of our pants so we'd at least have something to play with.

    I remember vividly when was around six and I asked for those for Christmas, my parents had no idea what I was talking about, ended up buying me the ripoff version.
