    I collect:<br><br>MEGA FORCE<br><br>GUNDAM (Figure toys from the Universal Century shows only. Just action figures. No models. {I'm a collector, not a damn mechanic! :p)<br><br>M.U.S.C.L.E.<br><br>ROBOTECH (VINTAGE/or playmates reissues only. NO TOYNAMI! >:( )<br><br>Most 80's Japanese mech toys (I particularly like Macross, Orguss, Dougram, Votoms in addition to Gundam.) <br><br>I would like to begin re-collecting late 80's-early 90's Lego (Futuron, Blacktron, Castle stuff from this period.)
  1. by "Macross Jetfire", do you mean the Jetfires (origianlly boxed and sold as Transformers Jetfires) that ended up still with the little UN Spacy Macross logo on the wings? Yeah thats what I mean, just can't spell the name brand so I just call it a Macross version Jetfire. Cool, I'm impressed!

  3. When I first loaded the page all I saw was the Hello Kitty toys. "Gi Joe Mcdonald Toys Revealed" @loll@ ..I ROFLed immediately, then finally scrolled to see the other toys.
  4. You're so right about that! My friend had about the entire line of Toxic Crusaders and for sure I played with those in the same "wrestling league" as our TMNT. And I'm surprised I didn't get the idea to play football with my action figures like some of you, since I was a HUGE football fan as a kid, and still am.
  5. I was wondering about the legality of this. And beginning to get my own ideas... I may hate most new toys but I do appreciate the fact that decals, especially paper decals, aren't used as much anymore.
  6. Only? My room is Central Jersey's other toy show. ~_^ Cool news, though. I might just go.
  7. Bucky O'Hare I always saw as TMNT's competition in those days.. and I chose TMNT. I was a big fan of the Dino Riders toys, but like many toy cartoons of that time I never saw it, I was too poor for a VCR.
  8. OMFG, I do remember these. I've no idea where to get 'em but I do remember their extra-battery gimmick and the TV special they had with races hosted by Jesse Ventura. Now that's an obscure memory for me. I do remember the Bandai Super Hyper Racers that came out at the same time as competitiion. I prefered those, as sort of quasi-model toys they had more building options like extra engines.
  9. Maybe it's a bit taboo with 'collectors' but I find it an interesting topic. How did you play with your toys? From many people I hear they reenacted TV episodes and storylines with their figures, like acting out TF the Movie with their TFs. I never did things like this, a reason being I never had more than 5 or so toys from popular lines and mine were typically not the star characters. What did I do? In order of which I remember doing the most (and I have a good memory of these things): 1. Building. I had a lot of Lego and Construx and would build many vehicles, fortresses, et cetera. It was always a good time consuming challenge to make do with the pieces I had. I particulalrly treasured Lego hinge-pieces for making robot mechs. 2. BIG WARS. Here I'd use the terrain of my house to set up massive battles involving all toys and scales, drafted from the toybox to different sides. These would involve everything from Joes to G.U.T.S. to Battle Beasts to MOTU to platsic army men to MUSCLE to Robotech (I had an Excalibur and I remember making that bad-ass mech a particular force on the battlefield). One battle I recall had it's only survivor be a plastic grey horse from a farm animal toy set. Related to the "big wars" but much more formal were the dioramas I'd set up for my Mega Force, such as in a big tray with sand and stones for desert warfare or the neat detailed battlefield I made from a green-felt on hard board table covering type thing and trimmed fake plastic plants for trees, along with a a painted blue river. 3. Fighting Tournaments. Based upon either boxing-type or prowrestling type rules with KO counts and 123 pins, I'd clash figures in structured tournaments until there was a champion. I'd even lay out the figures in pairings to remeber how I had the battles set up. Either these would be a mixed-line class that would involve TMNT, MOTU, WWF, and other similar size figures (and the ruggedness of their construction and high-personality looks of their appearance suited them well for wrestling-type fighting) or, I'd have tournaments with smaller-scale toys that I had a lot of . Battle Beasts, and huge 64-man MUSCLE tourneys. Sometimes when i see my box of MUSCLE I'll fight 'em a little. And everytime I buy a new Mega Force piece I have to line up the armies on my floor.
  10. Welcome! ...although I'm new too. It looks very 1989 and Japanese, so that's probably why I like it.
  11. I'd like this, especially if the figures were smaller scale like the original line so the monsters could be appropriately huge. (DRAGONS!) But that's wishful thinking with toys as they are nowadays.
  12. I don't know, but it looks really cool! I'd like to know also (and maybe I did know once, it looks vaguely familiar.)
  13. Um... Mega Force. I can see why it didn't make it past one year, but they should have at least given the V-ROCS a base-vehicle in the class of the Triax's Goliath. Plus I'd have liked to been able to get some sort of premium with all of my "General Star" points. I'd like to know what Kenner had in mind with those.
  14. I bleed green and silver. Every season is Passion of the Christ like suffering. It takes balls of stone but I won't sell out to some other team like so many in the PHL area do.

    One

    The Valkyrie. Erm, I mean "G1 Jetfire." I could use one in better shape than the one I have. Always loved Macross more than Transformers.
