Default Who remembers 80'* toys?

After seeing this thread http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=72768 it got me remembering those toys from the 80'*. So in addition to the toys that I remember, lets see if we can get a fairly good list Oh yeah, the toys I am listing ORIGINATED from the 80'*, so GI Joe is not listed.

Transformers (duh)
Go-Bots (toy line that spawned a cartoon series)
Construx ( I still have mine, and my son plays with them when he is with me)
Capsella
Robotix (this toy spawned a cartoon too)
PogoBall
Centurians (another toy that spawned a cartoon)
Teddy Ruxpin


I know there are more...so reach into those memory banks and those 5.25" floppys and dredge up some toys!

I was inseparable from my Nintendo Gameboy.

When I was younger I loved those big Tonka trucks, and matchbox cars. Oh, and my bike was the most important thing to me in the world... lol

Yup. Mobile Armor Strike Kommand. I had the green motorcycle/helicopter thingy and the camaro w/ gull wing doors. Also had a birthday party themed from that, complete with the MASK paper tablecloth

Snap....just remembered another one...I think the name was Leeon Neeon or something like that. They were glow in the dark necklace/bracelet things that you could join together and make other cool things.

Mon-chi-chis
Popples
Wacky-wall-walkers (god I loved them...mom didn't though)

I guess I'm a little weird...

Rubics Cube was about the only 80'* toy I owned.

The rest of my hobbies revolved around model trains (still collect brass locomotives and rolling stock) and all things mechanical/electrical. I'm from a different generation.

Best 1980'* toy I got... 1987 Honda CBR600F "Hurricane". In the words of the motorcycle press of the day: "Something this bitchin can't be legal!" The first time I wound it up to 130mph on US 119 near Connellsville PA one autum night, I was hooked on sportbikes for life.
