If you could get ONE SUPER rare vintage toy (action figure, playset, vehicle, whatever but no complete collections, just one item, and it has to exist, there has to at least be one copy out there in the wild) AND one rare vintage toy for Christmas, from someone with a lot of money, where price was no option, (but you couldn't sell it, it would just be YOURS), what would you get? (add a link to a picture of them if you can find them)

I think I'd have to go with a Carded AD&D Pernicorn windup for the super rare one.

As for the rare toy, I'd probably take a carded Takara R2D2 windup.

*I was originally just going to make it one, but wanted to mention the R2D2 as a runner up, and figured most of the peeps on here would have a tough time picking just ONE toy...

I'd probably ask for the Terrordome. I sold mine ten years ago when I moved from NY and kind of regret it.

But I never had the GIJOE Defiant Shuttle set as a kid and that always looked awesome.

So I'd probably flip a coin and let luck decide which one I got.

It's cool, I edited it for TWO toys, so you can have both! :wink:

Of the big Joe toys, I think I'd enjoy owning a Terrordrome most.

it would have to be MISB, and I WOULD open it.

No image of a carded Estrela Brainiac exists.

As far as the Tower of Darkness, I believe the one pictured on the back of the package, the one in Action Figure Digest AND the one in Lee's Toy Review were all different. So, take your pick. :D

For me it would be a Superpowers Batcopter. It is fairly rare (extremely rare in Spain).

I asked Chip for the one he got some weeks ago but got no reaction from him, so I will keep dreaming...

Sorry man, I don't remember that message. :(

Peace,

I'd have to say the Kenner Super Powers Tower of Darkness that Chip referred to and a Carded Estrela Green Arrow!

As for Pictures I have nor know of any for the Green Arrow.
Chip beat me to the Tower of Darkness :wink:

Mine would have to be the Kenner INDIANA JONES figures and accessories. Missed out on these as a kid and regret it (I had Indy but that's it).

Don't even have to be in the packages, man.
