Nostalgia Toys. what did you play with as a child?
My mom got two of these at garage sales.
SUPER VAN CITY
This was my first BW... sold all the other ones I had, but kept this one. Nostalgia's sake.
Just to add this motherfucker. Had so much fun transforming all three animals back and forth, and if I felt like it, into the combined Magnaboss. Best gift ever.
Got it from a flea market when I was 5. Missing like half the guys and the cannon. Still fun.
Went to visit my cousins whom I'd never seen in Vermont (1500 miles away) in 4th grade; they had the same thing only with all the pieces. I was shocked at how much I'd been missing.
I had the redeco(?) of this guy, K-9. Same color scheme as my dog at the time, a German Sheppard.
Magnaboss truly was my favorite Beast Wars figure, there was literally never a dull moment with him as a whole or as individual robots.
Got this guy from Kay-Bee Toys around 96-98 along with Nimrod and Cable (the good ol' days of 3 for 9.99, having no idea who he was aside from the fact that he worked under Apocalypse and that was good enough for me. He was always the one I took on errands/trips, one Power Ranger Zord got old really quick.
I just may find one on eBay and see if my parents recognize him
>Was a poorfag as a kid
>No happy memories about most of these, was really envious of the kids who could get them and made fun of me
I had some really shitty Spider-Man bootlegs that I'm repainting and trying to make look decent right now.
>tfw the eagle has Gold Plastic Syndrome
I actually managed to save the eagle in one piece until about one year ago when one of my nephews got his grubby mitts on it and broke it. Oh well.
Aww man I had so many rescue heroes. They were the shit. I had that fort, a bunch of smaller vehicles, and pic related the mac daddy of toys. That's right the fucking Rescue Heroes Aquatic Rescue Command Center. You know that owning this baby made you hot shit. I mean look at this kid. He knows he's the coolest motherfucker on the block because he has the godamn Rescue Heroes Aquatic Rescue Command Center.
mighty max was the shit back then (even if it was the boy's version of polly pocket.)
Beyblade, by far this one takes the cake for nostalgia. I was going to pick Max Steel, or something else, but Beyblade is basically my life, even today, so I've got to give it to that.
The first time I ordered a Driger G booster, just to start re-collecting plastics, I melted in nostalgia and pure happiness putting it together, it reminded me of the small shop I used to get my Beyblades from when I was really young, even though I wasn't following Beyblade as strongly around G-Revolution as I was around the first season, there is still nothing like building a plastic gen Beyblade regardless of the season it's from.
>that old logo
I just remembered I used to think the KFC mascot was a stick figure with a realistically drawn head. Kinda like the Pep boys
"WHY NOT BOTH?" is what my thoughts were.
I was always the boy that played with girls toys,, but then Mighty Max was the only "boy toy" to perk my interest. My lust for gore and horror as a tyke was fulfilled with Mighty Max. I would constantly terrorize my cousins by inviting their Polly Pocket friends to come strut in the world of Mighty Max.
My cousin was a girl and liked Polly Pocket, and I liked Mighty Max. Our birthdays were pretty close together, and I remember one year we celebrated them together and she got this big-ass Polly Pocket set and I got several Doom Zones and we had Max and a gang of monsters pay a visit to Polly's pink fantasy world. It was good times.
Hey shitlord, I had the same castle, though the knights were different. It also came with a kickass pirate ship.
Also, as a kid I had all six flip head Power Rangers in a special metallic edition (pic related), which turns out were pretty rare even back in the day. I wish I still had them. Oh well.
Back when I was a kid, my mom's friend always brought her daughter to play with me. So my Might Max and her Polly Pocket made an awesome combo. Fun thing is that she always wanted her girls to marry my monsters.
Polly Pocket and Littlest Pet Shop were my jam. I was so sad when I found out my dad donated everything except for this stuff. No Pollies were spared.
I had so many complete LPS sets. Fuck.
My little brother had this.
I had a few of the non-metallic versions of those.
I also loved TMNT (I had the whole first wave and assorted figures from later waves), I loved Lego too. Had lots of assorted superhero toys, mostly X-Men and Batman, but also some more random stuff like Swamp Thing.
Also MOTHERFUCKING PIC RELATED. Kong too.
the best playset ever released, bar none. Perfect for what it is, and played home to numerous other seiges of star wars, digimon, and heroscape figures.
I loved that thing.
this was pretty fun, too
>blowing up the safe
>crashing through the window
>flipping off the roof
>kicking the barrel with the boot
>collapsing the stairs
>getting thrown by the loose plank
>shooting the canon
>getting put in jail
shit was the michael bay movie of Fischer Price, everything either exploded or caused something else to explode.
I loved the micro machines aircraft carrier.
Had bucketloads of Army Men and Action Men as well.
I found this micro machines sub the other day while packing the house for moving.
this reminds me.. when i was a kid, me and my friend played a lot with toy cars (Hot Wheels, Micromachines and Matchbox)
and he had this awesome big ass transport warplane in camouflage. i dont know what company it was from, but it had a door on the backside and these tracks inside of them so that you could put toy cars in it, and let them drive out of that backdoor.
dont know if anybody remembers this toy..
Still have mine, collecting dust on a shelf at the moment but I still get some fun out of it from time to time.
i've been considering buying a set of these on eBay. still have fond memories of getting these as a kid.
Just pulled these outa the closet. They were my favorites!
I know it's not le ebic 90s, but this toy is nostalgic for me now. It came out in 2002, so I was either 12 or 13 at the time.
There were two other Spawn figures I got with this one, though I don't remember which they were. My friend and I went into KB Toys and thought these looked so badass we each took three different Spawn toys, in box and everything, and casually walked out of the store without paying for them.
Couldn't believe we got away with such blatant theft when we got back to my house, but damn was it worth it. I need to go through storage and see if I still got this guy. Reminds me of my best friend from back then.
Had this and other medieval sets, various pirates and westerns too. Action figures ranging from Pirates of Dark Water, the Toxic Crusaders, Ninja Turtles, Earthworm Jim, He-Man, GI-Joe, and the like.
Oh hell yeah!
I even had this awesome base that was the size of like, 4 of those small ones put together. I always thought those spring loaded parts that made stuff 'blow up' were the most genius things, even back then
Making me miss all my old sets heh. All I have left other than the submarine is this base, think I still have all the pieces or at least most of them.
I don't think I had anything specific. I had some KO barbies and plushies, that's about it. If I wanted a "figure" of a character I like I drew it on paper, colored it, then cut it out and drew the back of the character on the other side. I made a bunch of those, then my sibilings and I used to play with them and make stories.
Oh, and this thing was probably the only genuine Pokemon merch I had as a kid. Didn't have a gameboy, a pokedex or anything, but buying this made me very happy back then.
HA! I had this, also this (should tell you my age).
i loved army building this shit when i was a kid!
These were my entire childhood right here. I had all of them ALL OF THEM. Too bad I lost them somewhere in my life and only have a few bits and pieces left. I'd love to have these back.
This was based on a show, right? I never saw it, but I got this thing and it was pretty bitchin.
Huh. I had this, which I guess was a knockoff. I thought it was some generic alien thing.
>Sister and I each got this for Christmas
>Wrapping paper was thin enough to see through it
>Sneaked downstairs early Christmas morning to open presents before our parents woke up
Why can't Christmas be as fun now as it was as a kid?
Hahaha, you fucking invalid, do you not know anything about anything? Whats it like operating with a single braincell? Shit, learn to google you fucking shitlord, fuck.
>Probably the coolest looking Beast Wars toy I had
>Leg joints were too flimsy to support its weight
God, that was disappointing.
Mystic Knights was Saban's attempt at making at making an original "American" toku show based off the popularity of Power Rangers. It was better than Masked Rider and VR Troopers. About the same level as Big Bad Beetleborgs.
This. I had the animals too.
The cat was too stiff, it couldn't "squish" from impact
I remember getting few of those from the dollar store. Briefly my small-ass town's gas station carried some mega cheap Godzilla figures that came in bags. Probably the rejected sculpts because some of them were seriously wonky.
Why do people only remember Bionicle
These fucking things were the shit, fuck yeah roboriders and throwbots
How do you not think motorcycles with faces and launching discs were fun or cool? Especially making the fuckhuge robots out of them when you collect them. Literally what started bionicle.
blew my mind anon, never seen the animals before! The crash dummies were very creative in retrospect... I wonder if they will ever make a comeback? I can't help but think they are politically incorrect these days.
Nah, I came back with more pictures. Like this Mighty Max over here.
Came back to /toy/ to enter that Secret Santa thread.
Just the thread I was looking for. I'm having trouble remember a line of monster toys, I can only recall four of them but they were small models that came with top trump cards.
The four I remember is a tomato covered in snot, and pair of trousers with green hands, I gray mirror with a brush and a fridge with an ice monster.
This glorious motherfucker, the arch nemesis of my 1998's Godzilla trendmasters figure
Why does this look so much like Modulok?
I think I got him for some birthday present. Never really learned the backstory or anything, but I can't being to measure the fun I had with him.
>some kids set em up a building out of these
>I pretend to be Godzilla and knock it over
>other kid pretends to be Clifford the Dog and attacks me
>epic Godzilla vs Clifford battle in the ruins of brick city
>set up my own building just to knock it down cause I'm Godzilla
>proceed to knock it down
>get in trouble for making a mess
It must have been really major, because everybody did that shit all the time, before and after.
>Got older, sold it at a garage sale or something
>I'll probably never have it again
>I'll never be able to make it do battle with the new Giant Godzilla
Mine had a hole in the back of it's mouth. I'd use it to eat cars and other action figures and shit
We built a tower around someone once. He had to stand perfectly still with his arms flat against his sides. As soon as the tower had been closed over his head, our teacher said "where's (the kid in the tower)?"
He burst out. Bricks everywhere. This was a thing for like a week before the teacher got tired of playing along and told us to go back to building other shit instead of exploding towers.
Power Rangers was the shit.
Megazords were the shit.
Combining Zords into Megazords was the shit.
But Zords that could EACH transform into their own robot, on top of being able to combine into a Megazord? That blew my fucking mind as a kid.
and all the other "Soldier Force" Playsets
>Wake up one morning in the school holidays
>Get down stairs and my mum tells me I have a parcel
>Giddy as fuck
>RIP AND TEAR
>It's a Godzilla - F/A-18 Hornet Strike Jet
>Inside is a letter from Kentucky Fried fucking Chicken telling me I'd won the jet in a prize draw.
>My dad had entered without telling me
First prize was a trip to New York or something so my dad was pretty bummed to have not won that but I could not give a shit, Colonel Sanders sent me a jet so I was chuffed.
I'm really hoping this thread can help me.
I've been looking for years for a toy I had in the mid/late 90s
I think it was a micro machine playset or something similar.
light brown/tan/camo tank with a firing missile (similar to the Action Fleet ships from Star Wars)
the top of the tank featured a stop for a figure*(again similar to the action fleet)
the real gimmick was you could pull the top of the tank backwards on hinges and the tank would convert into a 3 level base/fortress.
the top rotated and the bottom featured fold down ramps between the tracks so small vehicles inside. I don't remember what was on the second middle level.
if anyone knows what I'm talking about please help. I would be so damn greatful
Oh yea, Forgot to mention it was three types of planes. They had no individual robot modes, the planes turned into parts and turned into one robot together. The head was the smallest and a triangular shape, also the only one I had. The instructions showed what the other two looked like but I forgot.
Still have it, not complete but still
Also, my first JP figure, this thing has still batteries after all these years
