1. Star Wars
2. Transformers
3. G.I. Joe
4. LEGO sets (especially the Space ones)
5. Ummm....I had these 3 3/4" Fisher Price action figure and vehicle toys that were pretty cool. Anyone else remember those? They are sort of on the list by default 'cause I never played with He-Man or Thundercats or TMNT, but they were fun and they worked well with my Star Wars and G.I. Joe guys... ummm...did anybody else have these things...guys??

"Adventure people" was the name of the Fisher Price 3 3/4" figures. They were kind of like a scaled down "Adventure Team" for those of us from that GI Joe era. My favorites were Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Adventure People, Tonka trucks, and GI Joe.

1. Vintage SW
2. Current SW (they are different in my book)
3. Transformers
4. GI Joe

Pretty dull list, eh? I wasn't allowed to collect Masters of the Universe, and I stopped any non-SW collecting after about 1987 or so (comic books took over).

Other toys I liked but never collected:
Clash of the Titans
Indiana Jones
Adventure People
Secret Wars
Dukes of Hazzard

Emperor Howdy,

I remember the Micronauts. They were "da bomb" way back then ;). The only name I can remember from the entire line was "Wheel Guy", and even that could be the result of an overactive imagination.

Adventure People. That was it. Thanks Guys.

Heh. Nobody said GoBots cause they sucked.

And what were those robot toys that fired their hands off at each other? And launced missiles from their chests? There was a Godzilla one also that shot his fist off. I never had them, but the older kid down the street had 'em and when I was 5 they came up to my waist. They were HUGE!!! Those were cool when he let me play with 'em...

Rollo, those were Shogun Warriors, I believe. Raydeen was my favorite.

And I sorta collected GoBots, only because they were cheap (inexpensive). Some were okay, but what was up with those Deluxe GoBots? They were some bizarre ships/cars/etc.

But everybody said Star Wars (and those that didn't implied it was obviously their fave...) we just didn't differentiate between vintage and modern. Although we probably should, since having Transformers in the #2 slot on a lot of lists, one naturally doesn't include that crappy Beast Wars atrocity of a lineup so...consider "Star Wars" to mean ALL Stra Wars, vintage or otherwise, and "Transformers" to mean Generation 1 only. At least on my list...

I actually differentiated between all the lines of Star Wars toys but they took up most of my list so breaking up the SWAF lines in order of favorites:

1. Star Wars
2. Empire Strikes Back
3. Power of the Jedi
4. Power of the Force
5. Return of the Jedi
6. POTJ 12"
7. Episode 1 12"
8. Episode 1
9. Vintage 12"
10. POTF2 12"
11. Power of the Force 2
