Okay:

HOT:

Arrow My sister had (and used to have a lot of fun with): both My Little Pony and Glowworm. But I am mainly listing those here for the fact that they are still around, and in a great shape (a bit dirty, but still fully detailed, not even the "paint" got lost).

Arrow I have a pretty awesome Spider-Man action figure that my dad bought me even before I was born (I think itīs from 1989). This is, once more, still around, and in a really good shape. That thing deserves a medal for the mere fact that me and my little brother played with him a LOT, and its still at itīs finest (not so common state for my toys).

Arrow The Duravit trucks I mentioned a while ago... those are still awesome, and sometimes I feel like playing with them again (but I dont do it, though).

Arrow If the NES and the Famicom are considered toys, then those are definitely hot.

Arrow The Ghostbustersī toys... Do I need to say something else?

NOT:

Arrow Legos/Lincoln Logs/Mis Ladrillos/Etc: Man, I LOVE Legos, but they made me have a lot of arguments with my sister everytime a piece got lost. Plus, we had to shut the door and keep the animals away from our playroom every single time we used those.

Arrow The Hula-Hula Ring: funny for about... five minutes?

Arrow Tiger Electronics Games: *sigh*

And now, for the feature presentation: probably the best toy I have ever had (definitely under the "Hot" category). I got it from a friend of my mother in 1993 or something, but this is probably from the late 70īs or early 80īs. A Black Robot with a ŦTV Screenŧ on itīs belly, that played a lot of cool imagines, while itīs eyes would turn red and it... fired missiles out of itīs head. That was as epic as it sounds, and I had a lot of fun with the thing... that until my little brother was born in the very next year, and my mom took the rockets away because this thing had some serious fire power (could launch them across the room very quickly!).

I wonder where it would end. I certainly hope not in the trash can, because last time I saw it (2000?) it was alright, but the my mother just lost the missiles :/

And I just realized that I am replying a post from the Webmistress herself. Nice Razz!

Among those I hope to see re-released are the original She-Ra figure, and the Mega Force line.

Have you seen Lord Skeletor's reviews of the H-MatMotU and S: PoP figures?

Who was that guy who did that fast-talking in Micro Machines? That was memorable.

If you mean this, that is John Moschitta, Jr.

Haha- I remember those Micro Machines commercials. But I mainly remember John Moschitta, Jr. as "Terrible Testaverde" on the classic "Saved By the Bell" episode- "The Gift". Very Happy Cool
