Hi folks..

Which toys that, as a kid, you always wanted but have never actually owned?

Here's a few on my wish list:




I know two of these have recently been re-issued, yet, I know if I actually bought them I'd play with then once or twice & they'd end up sitting on a shelf gathering dust or, worse, boxed up in storage..

So what toys are on your wish list & are there any reasons (except rarity/expense) that you've never gotten them?

That transport looks really cool. I have never seen that before. I cant think of any toy I wanted and didn't get off the top of my head. Not that I got everything I wanted but usually my friends had the stuff I didn't so we shared and traded off.

We were lucky and had some great Christmases with many of the popular toys given as gifts. Living in a grove with lots of other kids around you could also pretty much guarantee if you didn't have a particular toy then someone else would, so you'd still get to play with it eventually as we all shared and played along nicely.

Like Tshot, one toy I would have really liked to own was Big Trak.




Another is Castle Grayskull. I only had a few MOTU figures as I was growing out of toys, but wish I had that castle.




Zeroids. Battery operated worker robots.




Transformers. A few friends had these but I never had any Transformers.




Planet of the Apes figures. Again, some friends in the grove had these but I never had them. They were really cool.
