Default Greatest Toy Line of the 80's

I don't think I forgot any really big ones. My vote goes for Masters, as He-Man stuff was pure crack to me as a kid. Still, it's hard to choose. All the above lines feel like my children.

Oh shit. Tough fucking call man. I had to go with MOTU as I still have almost the entire collection. Well I don't but my dad kept all of it. And decided to throw out my Star Wars, Justice League, Gi. Joe figures. For the simple reason that "I thought the He-Man figures would be worth something..."


But the TMNT line was pretty fucking dope there for awhile. The Turtle Van was a thing of beauty when I was a kid.


Edited because I forgot how awesome The Real Ghostbusters toys were.

Oh man, how I wish I still had all my old figures. I still have some MOTU and Star Wars. And I have a duffle bag full of ninja turtles (thank God my parents didn't get their grubby hands on those).

I know one you forgot, Go BOTS. I owned more of those than Transformers because they were cheaper.

I thought about Go BOTS, M.A.S.K., C.O.P.s, and Silverhawks, but didn't add them cause I didn't feel they were as popular. That's what "other" is for.

The first thing that popped into my mind when I saw that picture: That's it? I remember it being some huge playset, filled with awesomeness and sprinkled with joy. That thing looks like a shiny turd.

Same here man. I wonder if this pic is missing some awesomeness somewhere, or if I was just amused by whatever when I was a kid. I'm thinking the latter.

BAH! I did forget The Ghostbusters! I'm ashamed! I still have an Egon figure somewhere.

I never had Eternia. Damn, that playset was awesome looking.

Oh man, I only had Egon, Ray, and later Janine. I had a pretty good selection of ghosts, though, with Slimer, a cop that turned into a skeleton, a mummy, some kind of ghosts that snapped shut when you hit their tongues, one that shot other ghosts out of its mouth, and a few more I can't remember.
