ITT: Forgotten toys
Bone Age, motherfuckers.
Dinosaur skeletons that recombined into war machines for cavemen to ride.
I don't have a picture, but I had a jeep for wolverine in the 90s that had extendable blades in the wheels. It's engine was a fucking wheat thresher. I had so much fun as a kid throwing people in there, and blasting apocalypse with the missiles on the back.
There it is in the middle. There were better pictures but this one had the Sentinel, the Blackbird, and the Danger Room also in the shot
>nobody had a compatible toy to battle with
at least it looked cool
Had them, my friends did too. Not much fun though, cards didn't work well even though I had some of the best ones supposedly. You didn't miss much. I had Bolt and clamshoe.
I had all of those guys, except for the cycle, danger room, and cylinder in the back. Had three sentinels as a kid because clearance. Fun times were had by all in my room.
I had the pterodactyl and ankylosaurus. I loved those things and always wanted more, but mine were either from a garage sale or a clearance aisle so the line was long-gone by the time I got mine. I spent a lot of time looking at the back of the boxes, though, wishing I could have those other dinosaurs...
Can anything stop
Most people into this line today only know about or care about the Glyos versions, it seems.
one of my favorite commercials and I'm sad they don't make awesome toys like that anymore.
Now it's all furbyshit and other stupid unisex toys like that.
Not sure if these are forgotten but I've never seen em posted to here. I technically didn't get them (am grill, dad wouldn't buy me boy toys) but my brothers did and those little shits never played with them so I rescued them from the bottom of their toy bin. Had this set, plus one with the little Igor-like guy doing situps on a torture rack of some kind.
Wow, this is my first time ever seeing the Headquarters playset out of the box. Never saw it anywhere as a kid, didn't even know it existed until finding it on the internet a few years back.
Same with pic related.
>Creates 10 to 12 adamantium skeletons
And after that the only thing you can do is throw it in the trash.
Reminds me of this.
The building next door to me has a preschool class in it and this sucker has been sitting in the window taunting me for months.
I loved that Sentinel. LOVED. The Blackbird was cool too. I also had and liked Wolverine's combat cave. it worked surprisingly well.
I still want the HQ/Danger Room but it sells for megabuxxx now. Even though it's probably shitty.
I one of the best christmas's I had as a kid was around the time MIB and Indepenence Day came out. My brothers and I got Edger's van and each got one of the Alien's from ID4 that came with those sweet-ass floppy disc games. Great shit.
I remember my oldest brother and I getting the 7" Aliens, but our brother got the 12". I can't remember why he got the big one. Probably gave our parent's the least shit that year.
Alas, all that remains of my old Key Force Van
OH MY FUCKING GOD!! I had this as a child and never knew anyone who even knew what I was talking about. I thought it was some weird thing when I got it for Christmas, then realized it not only was Dinosaur-based (was obsessed as a child) but also transformed and went nuts.
Had that and the T-Rex Tank. Man, attackpack was my fucking jam, I remember getting the cement mixer near Christmas time and it was the tightest shit in my little world.
Toys that incorporated OOZE into their play were GOAT
When I was a kid, my parents found a building toy who's namy I cannot remember. All of of the pieces were different components to vehicles and machines like whole wheel axels, cockpits, chomping claws, cannons, jet wings, etc. That all connected using a universal connecting system. The theme was evil robots vs cyborg humans, the robot one I had was like a crome R2-D2 with grabby claws and a glass dome with a brain inside instead of the regular dome.
I never saw any other sets in stores, nor did any of my friends have other sets.
Can /toy/ help me figure out what it was?
The dudes that fit into the vehicles were army man sized and only moved at the shoulder, hips, and neck. I received them as a christmas present in 1998 (I know because power rangers in space was still running). I have no idea where they were from.
I'm going to assume you are an American, and that you mean gijoe sized army men. Im kinda weirded out that your description of the main guy with a brain sounds way too much like Krang. As for any idea, i thought you meant toys from the 80s - as i was a teenager during the 90s and didnt collect toys then.
Your set doesnt sound familar to me at all, and i checked a few toy lines running at the time, nothing is coming up atm. The basic sounding joints/articulation make it sound like a much older or cheaper/bootleg toy.
No, the human character I had with one set couldn't have been more than two inches tall, with basic swiveling joints. All of the pieces used a universal clipping peg/whole that made it more of a building toy than a vehicle toy. All of the humans were cyborgs and the robots I think had chrome paint. I've been searching for it online for the last few days, not remembering the name of the line is really bugging me.
If I get the time, I'll draw the universal connector the set used. Maybe I had a sub line of a more popular toy.
