  1. Picture 1: 3-Lanard Corps "GI Joe like" knockoff weapon 21-WAR PLANETS Bone Planet (I think) Missiles 28- Kenner Aliens Face Hugger 32-definitely a Power Rangers Gun Picture 2: 8 & 9-Power Ranger Gun (looks like same one from 18- Power Ranger White Ranger Sword 29- Spiral Zone Bad guy Gun 2- Possibly a Clash of the Titans Shield (but not sure) 66-looks like a Kenner Bone Age Weapon Picture 3: 6- Playmates TMNT Mutagen Man weapon 14-Kenner Aliens Face Hugger 20 Alieans Chest Buster 79-Power Ranger gun again So Many of them look familiar. I used to own the figures they go to but I sold them years ago and don't remember the names. Many are GI Joe weapons and many are GI joe knockoff Figure weapons (The Corps and others)
  2. I saw the R.E.V.s line too. Was really interested in the big leader, $30.00, until I saw the unfortunate name they gave him- "BIG P" He still looks cool and the smaller figures, like the cycle, can attach to him as well. Heres the homepage for them http://www.playmatestoys.com/html/revs/index.html
  3. I think your right. But I would not start to think that these things transform on their own just yet like the automorphers of a few years ago. They may have some spring loaded features that help the transformation process OR, IMHO, I think Hasbro came up with the name because they are CARS-hence AUTOs that transform -hence MORPH. I remember the GI Joe Hammer with FFT missle launchers. I searched the packed to find out what that was with excitement only to find out hasbro had come up with Finger Flick Technology missle launchers. @hmmm@
  4. If you look at the chest of the figure, there seems to be a joint for the upper torso. Look at the chest next to the right arm. His bandola and belt cover the joint up under the Left arm. Compare with the body of Takara's latest microman figures. This could be the same constrcution.
  5. I had all the figures fir the Corps line as well as some of the other lines. Rescue teams, Space teams and even Atomic Rangers (Power ranger like figures). I just recently sold the whole set on eBay. They went pretty well. I would say there is a demand for the old style figures.
  6. I did the same thing! I just told my boys about doing this last night! Nice to know I wasn't alone. Joe I did that too. Looks like it was a counsumer "added play feature." And I loved the Whilwind. I used to take it apart and use the twin guns as a hand gun too.
  7. I was just thinking of this last week when I thought of the first GI Joe toy I got in the 3-3/4" line. It was the FLAK. Later was thew HAL. I guess Hasbro decided that Gun emplacements either did not sell or they were not politically correct. Later gun emplacements were in vehicles or command centers only. What were some of the last specific gun emplacements made by Hasbro?
  8. I would be concerned about keeping keeping a Mint in Box collection of these. The batteries could leak or corrode over time. Not a good idea for collectors Hasbro.
  9. Thanks ARROW, I hadn't thought of it that way. But it makes sense. The 1/6 scale is the most popular.
  10. 3-3/4" 6" 12" or whatever. What would you say is the most popular scale? Do you think it has to do with the changing times? For Example: I grew up on 3-3/4" Star Wars and GI Joe, but most kids today have grown up on 6" X-men and Superheros. What do you think? For me, I still beleive 3-3/4" rules by shear numbers, but the 6" size is slowly taking that place.

    Army Gear

    I know what you are talking about. I have a group of little military figures that went to toys that changed from army gear to bunkers and stuff. There were to different toy lines by two different companies. One had a more traditional military look while the other had "high tech" looking figures (I think that line was called "Expanders" or something like that). They were not micro machines, but I think they were made by the same company. (not sure though.) See if these pictures are what you are thinking of. The guys on the right are from the X-panders line by Galoob. I just found a link to a site that has the X-panders line: http://www.parrygamepreserve.com/toys/xpanders/ Just found this link to for Army GEAR but it is on no help as far as pictures go: http://www.inthe80s.com/toys/armygear0.shtml But this ended eBay auction has a picture http://cgi.ebay.com/Army-Gear-Toy-lot_W0QQ...5QQcmdZViewItem
  12. Those are great. I used to keep those around too. I always got a laugh in how the first time Optimus Prime was listed, 1984, they mis-transformed him.
  13. I find that I don't always need to buy to relieve stress. I can go to a store and just look and daydream. This allows me to relax and sometimes find some surprises in a store. Though I could not afford it, I was surprised to see the Yamato Garland in a local comic shop. Just looking at the toy and the descriptions on the package provided a bit of an escape for me.
  14. I used to combine everything in one of 3 ways. I had the 20" tall Shogun Warrior Godzilla. My 3-3/4" GI Joe and Star Wars figures were always terrorized by a Giant monster (Clash of the Titans kraken, the AT-AT, some Transformer and anything else I could find) and Godzilla would save the day. Another way is I would play Doctor Who with my figures. I would have planets and aliens from everywhere with either Han, Luke, Ben or any other figure as the Doctor. Gi Joe figures and Transformers would appear in the stories too. Any time, and Place was open to my imagination. Larger scale figures, though I didn't have many, wouldn't matter. They were from a planet of giants or something. The last way I played witth mixing up the toy lines was with a complex story. I have every micro Transformer as well as all the Transformer cities. I came up with a story that revolved around the Pretender Monstructor. The Autobots were put on trial by a race of superior beings who determined that the Autobots were guilty of genocide of the Decepticon race. Ion order to prove their innocence, they had to find Decepticons or prove that the universe was better off without them. The Pretender components of Monstructor were hidden on different planets throughout the universe inhabited by the toys Air Raiders, Spiral Zone, Galoob Micro figures and whatever else I could find. That story took me at least 7 weeks of Saturday afternoons to play out. All of this during the '80's.
