Finding all my old toys got me thinking of other things I used to have in the 1970s before Star Wars came along. Because my mind is shot, I need help in remembering.

Here's what I can remember having :

Megos
Micronauts
Shogun Warriors (24" and diecast)
Weebles
Fisher Price Little People
Mattel handheld games (Football, etc.)
Six Million Dollar Man
Lincoln Logs
Tinkertoys
Legos (mostly space sets)
Super Jock (football & basketball)

Please contribute if you are old enough to. :)

Peace,

Chip

Ooooh! Stretch Armstrong! Another one I had forgotten!

Can you tell I'm planning a memorabilia room for my office? It's gonna be fun, I tell you! :D

Peace,

Chip

Before Star Wars? Man, I had Comic Super Heroes, Mego Shazam, Superman, Hulk and Spider Man (remember the bulbous head?), Weebles (Wobble but they don't fall down!) Stretch Armstrong and Stretch Monster. My favorite was Pulsar the Ultimate Man of Adventure. He had a see-through chest and when you hit a button on his back, you could see his lungs expand, his heart beat and "blood" run through his veins. I'll never forget that one!

That's on my list as one I remembered. I even had the command center where he would 'recharge' himself. :D

Peace,

Pulsar was one hell of a creepy toy, I guess he fought crime by taking his shirt off and grossing everyone out.

Hypnos, I believe, he was pretty cool. I didn't have either of them, too gross for my mom.

As the seventies began, I was still playing with Zeroids, Major Mat Mason and GI Joe.

As space toys and Joe fell by the wayside, I started in on the Mego Super heroes, Star Trek (had the bridge set!), Planet of the Apes and Knights sets. I also had some cheap GI Joe knock-offs.

Big Jim and later the Wolfpack were in my toy box. The Six Million Dollar Man and Evel Knievel were cool, although T-stick technology was lame then and still doesn't work well now. :lol:

As Star Wars approached I was off action figures and into models and race & train sets.

I had a HUGE amount of these, but sold them 10 years ago. I just recently found the instructions for about half of them...

Oooo... nice. I have everyone of those sets you show... and more. They are in several large boxes in my folks attic. Dunno if I was a smart enough kid to keep the instructions though... mmmm... I might want to look for those next time I'm back there.
