stuff from our past!
here are some toys that i remember from my childhood days (i didn't own all of them):
rock 'em sock 'em robots. these guys were cool. hours of endless boxing fun. i just watched raging bull last night, too...lol.
star wars action figures. these were the best! as if the movie wasn't enough, i got to be luke skywalker. then vader was much more cool, so i finished my tenure as him. i had the xwing fighter, too. wanted the tie fighter. had the small die cast tie fighter....which was no match for the xwing which was 100 times its size.
green machine. wanted one, but never had one. didn't even have a big wheel, but an imitation one. actually, i think my imitation one was better....it was metal. but as a kid, you get envious of the "real thing."
skeletor action figure. he-man was ok, but not as cool as skeletor.
stretch armstrong. i think maybe inherited from older generations, but still very cool. you could pull this guy's arms and he would never break. you had to do the bit like in the hitcher....where rutger hauer tied her to the semi and....
g.i. joe with kung fu grip. we didn't learn until later that david carradine was actually the one with kung fu grip, and that he taught g.i. joe the technique. he was qualified cuz he was the white guy that played a chinese guy better than chinese guys.
dukes of hazard car. i didnt even want the duke characters. just the car. later, most kids wanted daisy, too.
nerf football. they all somehow became waterlogged, and had one end bitten off by some dog.
i know there's more. help me out here.....
