I recall being a bigtime Star Trek buff when I was around 9-10yo. I had a model Enterprise that was this plastic kit with emblems you stick on the various parts. It vanished somewhere along the years.

With the 40th anniversary of the orginal Star Trek series running on the air, I decided what better way to help celebrate than to order a new ship! It arrived today, and it has lights and makes cool sounds. One of the best toys I could ever find!

One of my other favorites is my Winnie the Pooh bear. I remember being a WTP fan when I was younger, say 7 or 8yo.


Money talks, but all it tells me is goodbye.

If I could meet myself as a boy...

GI Joes rocked. I had so many, I couldn't even remember their names. Had vehicles too - my personal favorite was this long tank-thing, its back opened, and a tower with two incredibly BIG missiles folded up out of it. Can't remember its name, but it lorded.

Ninja Turtles first broke out and became popular with my age group; oddly, though, I never got into that fad.

Matchbox Cars.

I kept the collection intact. Now my son has them. SO cool to see them being loved and played with again!

Got a huge mercedes car on my 8th birthday with flashing lights and bumping aids. Sometimes take it out of the box to show the two boys but it is still only mine after 25 years.

LEGO's, my all time favorite. Build a city for the matchbox cars!! Then GI Joe and Godzilla would have a huge fight and destroy the city. I never had a ULTRA MAN.. so GI Joe was called to duty!!!

When I was a little older, my Crossman 760 BB gun. I had the duty of keeping the Chipmunks out of Dad's strawberries! That may be what started my big game hunting pursuit.

The chemistry set was cool, too. Till I made something that stunk to high heaven. Then I set the porch on fire with another expieriment. That was the end of that.

Great thread!!
