LoL! I'm guessing that's a 'Jetfire' (either Gundam or the Transformer copy), but my work firewall has blocked that as 'pornography'. I hope that's not flagged anything up for my bosses! ;)

My favorite toy was the computer.

Lego! Lego! And more Lego!

Boy I was so happy when I got a little electric Lego-train.

Legos for sure, BUT

Weapons and Warriors was my all-time favorite:
Weapons and Warriors - Castle Siege Game

Weapons and Warriors - Pirate Battle

GL, apparently your pornography filter is perceptive. :p

Never had lego. Was always jealous of people that did.

But I had every Star Wars figure from the original 3 films, plus an X Wing Fighter, Millenium Falcon and the British Death Star play set.

And a 12" Boba Fett that I sold a while back for about a 1000 pounds Sterling.

Game Boy and Lego

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 15 2009 8:00 AM EDT

Had a load of Star Wars figures, Lego and Transformers. ;)

I also had an obsession for little element based animal fighters. Can't for the life of me remember what they were called, but they had a hologram on thier chests that revealed there element.

I also picked up other stuff, like Centurions, after doing voice-overs or adverts for them. ;)

lego and the NES!

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 15 2009 8:02 AM EDT

Never had an NES, or other games console, until an original PS1. :(

But grew up around computers. My dad had a ZX81, and a string of BBC Micro's. ;)

I also had a bunch of Micronauts toys back in the late 70s. They were the most fragile set of figures ever. Bits were always snapping off.

"They were the most fragile set of figures ever. Bits were always snapping off."

are you sure it wasn't the leprosy line of micronauts?

If by "elements," you mean emotions like "love" and "happy"... and if by "hologram," you mean fuzzy, cuddly patches... then you, my friend, were playing with Care Bears. ;)

Lego's, computer games, GBA, and trampolines.

Adminedyit October 15 2009 8:13 AM EDT

no they were like wood, water, fire, i had a ton of them as well, epic battles in the living room!

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 15 2009 8:21 AM EDT

:D

Those were the one's! At least I'm not going mad. I must google them now! ;)

Care Bear's! Pfft! Next you'll be accusing me of playing with My Little Pony!

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 15 2009 8:25 AM EDT

Girder and Panel. That game was awesome. Nowadays they even have a set where you build some kind of water tower with functioning pumps. I know for a fact that my kids will get that freaking water tower one day. Ohhh, yes they will. Then I'll build it myself.

Yeeees. My vision is clear. That prophecy shall be accomplished.

AdminTal Destra October 15 2009 11:27 AM EDT

Neo Japan October 15 2009 11:30 AM EDT
