Sorry folks, I know I have not been around for ages and I am sure all five of my fans have given up on me but I am here now.
I have been on ebay and some other websites and it got me to reminiscing. About what you ask? Cartoons of course. If you have read anything on here you know about my love to everything transformers and I do have the first two season of cartoons on DVD. What about others?
Do you remember...
M.A.S.K. - Kinda transformer like. I loved that the cars turned into battle stations and planes, helicopters etc. This was an awesome show, unfortunately there are not as many toys available on ebay today. The ones there are over priced, broken or missing key pieces, just as the characters or their masks.
This show was a staple of my week day, after school, line up. I had most of the toys back in the day and would give anything to have some of them back. Thunderhawk with Matt Tracker, ahhh, the memories. The show was awesome and the toys were even more so. The combined my love of cars and transforming toys.
Another afternoon program that held my attention on and off was...
Thundercats! Loved this one too. Not sure why this one appealed to me as much but I think it was because they had cool weapons and cool vehicles. Whatever the case, I watched this one too. Rumor has it that they are trying to bring this one to the big screen. Please, make it not be true! I couldn't imagine seeing some actors painted like cats. Oh well, I guess it worked for the Transformers. Do you think Michael Bay could find enough places to stick explosives?
Finally, in my trip down memory lane I ran across a bonus.
Army Gear! Galoob, former maker of Micro Machines also produced this awesome line of toys. They appeared as "normal" army items, aka grenades, hand guns, canteens, etc but low and behold they were army playsets. I had several and wore them out. These toys are even more rare than the Mask toys. I have found a few on ebay but they are way out of my price range. I would love to have one or two but I can't justify buying a piece of my childhood at such a high price. Oh well, some memories are left just that, memories.
So if you are reading this and have some of these toys and are willing to part with them, contact me.
