Since we got the dangerous toys Topic, thought I would start this thread.

Yeah, I played with dolls as a child, haha, I had a Klingon Mego doll, wish I had the crew of Enterprise.
I remember my uncle took me shopping, and asked me what I wanted, I said that I wanted the Klingon,
I guess he thought it was not manly enough,LOL So he got me a Tonka truck too, which was awsome , Tonka
was real metal, felt indestructible.

I later on got the 1st series of Star trek NG Crew:
Pickard, Data, Worf, Yar, Riker, Q, etc..

Cool Post Whit.

Holy cow, I had Micronauts, thank you I forgot their name, you rock, Thank you :D
I remember the hands and feel got detached or you
could detach them, and they drove vehicles, like motorbikes. I loved them as a kid.

For me it was the Marx dinosaurs, among others. I know that the dinosaurs' physical appearances keep changing according to new theories, but if you look at those Marx ones alongside books that are contemporary with them, they're pretty accurate. And anyway, with or without ACCURACY, they were just plain ENJOYABLE. (I'm still re-acquiring them.)

I had Muscle Men and Madballs too! My other favorites included action figures (Thundercats, Voltron, Transformers, He-Man), LiteBrite, Battle Beasts. I also loved collecting Garbage Pail Kids and baseball cards. Oh, and the sticker albums for Thundercats, Transformers (which included a decoder). I also liked boardgames like Clue, Monopoly, etc. 80s toys and games were awesome!

Sure, I even wrote a mini-version when I was a kid, I love how you could jump around the book, it made reading extra fun, do they still sell them?

Oh yeah I had Etch A Sketch too!

I loved 'Choose your own adventure' books, they DID make reading more fun.

I loved Garbage Pail Kids. My cousin and I re-lived our youth back in college when we ordered about 3 sealed boxes on ebay. They've got updated series now.

Wacky Packages were actually 1960s and 70s - my generation :P They got reissued and redone in the late 80s. ;)

I guess that I probably pre-date almost everyone here, so nick-name me "grandfather Geek"! My favorite toys were almost ANYTHING that concerned space.

Back when I was a kid in the 1950s I had virtually every toy that was made of Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet. Also at one time or another I had these:

Apolo I Base - Airgam, Spain

Image

Apollo 3 Space Base - Airgam, Spain

Image

Cape Kennedy Space Play Set - REMCO 1965

Image

Captain Video Rocket Launcher Playset – Dumont

Image

Marx-Atomic Cape Canaveral Missle Base Space Play Set - Marx 1959.

Image

Marx Cape Canaveral Missile Playset – Marx 1952. This caused me to have really bad feelings when I got the original in Christmas of 1952. I was just learning to read and like a lot of kids tried to get a sneek peek of my presents. I only got a glimpse and thought I was receiving the “Cape CARNIVAL Set” and I was very angry and refused to open it. I hated circuses and only wanted space toys! Imagine my embarassment when my mon opened it for me and thrust it into my hands!

Image

This had various incarnations: Marx Cape Canaveral 4535 & 4536 - 1961, Project Mercury 4524 & 3526 - 1962, Project Apollo 4523 - 1966, Cape Kennedy 4625 - 1968 and Johnny Apollo 4630 - 1970.

Image

Operation Moonbase - Marx

Image

Operation X-500 - De Luxe Reading USA

Image

Outer Space Set - Archer USA

Image

Project Apollo Moon Set

Image

Costrucciones Interplanetarias Satelite Set – Spain. A flying saucer space station building set with numerous components including the silver saucer, columns, platforms and ramps. Comes with a number of plastic spacemen figures.

Image

Space Exploring Set - Hong Kong

Image

Fireball XL5 Space City - Multiple Toymakers. This was the favorite of my younger brother.

Image

Space Patrol Rocket Port Set – Marx. My older brother gave this to me one Christmas. It is one of the oldest TV tie-ins.

Image

The War of the Worlds Playset - Archer Plastics 1953
Released to coincide with George Pal's classic 1953 movie. 31 parts in its original die-cut box. The set includes the following:

10 Plasticraft GI's - Hard styrene metallic green plastic each figure is different.

6 Archer "Men of Mars"- Hard styrene plastic molded in metallic bronze, silver, green and purple. "… the most exquisitely designed space men ever produced. Their space suits are adorned with large epaulets on their shoulders, cuffed boots and gloves, and Romanesque helmets …". (Each has 1/16" wide glove slots to hold their vinyl weapons and astro-pacs.)

6 Martian Weapons - Soft red vinyl plastic. Includes paralyzer, atom rifle, neutralizer, force gun, ray gun, and disintegrator.

6 Martian Astro-pacs - Soft mustard colored plastic. Includes space-scope, first-aid kit, space dust, radio, Geiger counter, and ammo case.

1 Martian Commander - Hard styrene bronze colored plastic with original halo.

BUT NO WAR MACHINES!!!!

Image

Tom Corbett Space Academy Play Set #7010 - 1952. Marx. Willy Ley assisted in the design.

Image

My only other favorites were the plastic dinosaur toys (best site: http://www.dinosaur-toys-collectors-guide.com/) and science experimentation sets (ChemCraft™, etc.)

Butch , Welcome to PtE.

Wow, very cool looking toys, I have never seen any of these, they look like a lot of fun ( they could have made a Scifi version of D and D with
some of these sets). I do love Robby the Robot, never had one, sadly.

These must be worth a pretty penny now.

Dr. M, yeah I had Wacky Packages from the 1970s, then the reissues in the 80s, I recently bought several packs of reissues in 2012, not as good
as originals, yet what is LOL

Yes, most of them have been rereleased and reissued in every major bookstore now. They're known as gamebooks and every few years, there's a new series, though not as popular as in its heyday of the '80s and '90s. Choose Your Own Adventure was the longest lasting and best known one. Other favorites of mine included Find Your Fate, Explorer and Which Way. Check Gamebooks.org sometime for summaries and reviews of every gamebook series that has ever been released or that you can think of.

Cool, introduce a new generation to those wacky names. Did you know there was a horrible Garbage Pail Kids movie and also a cartoon series, both on DVD. I still have to watch them. Cartoon at least seems like it might be a little enjoyable. I loved the facts on the card, made it like a baseball card, with stuff like favorite hobbies, songs, movies by each character lol.

This was joked as Trash 80, but it was pretty good for text games, and writing Basic programs.

I used to love the WWF Action Figures, both the original 12 inch rubber ones and the 5-6 inch hard plastic ones. I had the full set of the hard plastic ones, even had a ring and a cage.

Does Butch or anyone else happen to know the year of the "Space Exploring" set? Or at least the general time it came out? It reminds me of one I used to have, but I'm not sure.

It is a partial re-boxing (missing many pieces) of a 1957 - 1963 set by Marx toys. The original Marx set that I had was a promo tie-in with The Mysterians in Japan. The ship in the Hong Kong Toy Company release is from one of the variations of Marx's 1952 Cape Canaveral Missile Playset (see box cover).

Sorry Mr.Z I had to edit this one out due to some problems in the link.
This post and the one above had a "Playboy" link that was setting off Kaspersky. I hope you guys don't mind I had to edit the specific links out. :D

No worries, Mr TZ DZ, :D

Is it this specific magazine that does it, or is it all adult magazines or what ? Just curious, thanks bro.

It wasn't any type of picture in general Mr.Z.

It was just something on that site you linked to, or something on that picture in specific that set off anti-virus.


No big deal, it occasionally happens. :)
