whoa.. I've gotta get those first two figures - Mrs Vorhees and Jason from Pt II

I had no idea these even existed !!!

Maannn...I want those too, but they were a 2015 Comic Con exclusive and can be pricey now. I went to my cousin's house and he had one. I geeked out a bit over it and he was like "oh, that's valuable?" His friend worked for the company and gave him a box of free stuff and that was in there. He's not even a horror guy. DAMN! :lol:

These guys were the bomb.  Real hair, dog tags, authentic snap-closure uniforms with grade-A plastic military boots.

My buddy's older brother had a big collection that we used to play with, but, being poor, I never got my own GI Joe. Later when Mattel's Fighting Furies came out, I got the Whip as a gift from the lady across the street.  I was stoked!

Toys back then look waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more different then they do now!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, they were better!

In the 90s there were retro toys/figures made as homages to the 60s & 70s versions.

But in 2018 I don’t think I’ve seen any toys/figures made as homages to those made in the 90s.

There's been a few things, but they're mostly lame like Tomagotchis and the demon hellspawn known as Furby. I do like the 90s Marvel throwbacks that came out last year though:

That's how Wolverine looked to an eight year old little Stormtron and that's how he should still look, damnit.

80s toys are where it's at for me though. I was a 3.75 G.I. Joe maniac. They had so many vehicles and shit! I used to make stop motion movie masterpieces with them and make my Grandparents watch them. Bless them!

I appreciate a lot of the 70s stuff too. There's so many great monster toys from that era. My favorite now are the Mego style retro figures that NECA started putting out a few years ago. I've got a bunch of these in my room of junk (the packaging is great!):

The small G.I. Joes from the early 80s were also great because they had the swivel arm thing going on. They were the first figures that did that I think. But even the first line of small G.I Joes that did NOT have the swivel arms were great because of the detail and accessories. I had a lot from both lines. I got Duke for free from some mail-in giveaway.

"Kung Fu" Grip was a big deal when it came out.

I feel like Mister Miyagi and his entire village are encouraging Daniel-san to kick ass.

I loved sliding off the end of this and onto the lawn and over some tree roots or into the fence!

Great for cuts and scrapes beyond the slide!

By Wham-o!
