    LEGO is a key toy from that generation. now lego talks and walks and flashes... same with Polly Pocket... polly don't fit in your pocket no more, she's like a foot tall and can do the mambo.

  8. You guys definitely haven't played with the new Lego Mindstorms set. I was all about old school Legos and Technics sets, but when I found out I can build a Lego robot that learns how to navigate through my room, all that old shit went out the window. Right now I'm working on a robot that makes its own art. It's out of control, seriously.

    On the other hand, remember the Inhumanoids? They bombed as a toy line, but they made some fucking cool big-ass monsters. Beer,

    toys are so much cooler nowadays. fuck, half of the toys on the market today are smarter than the kids that play with em.

    toys i loved as a kid:

    leggo (of course)

    he-man

    transformers

    voltron

    mask

    matchbox/hotwheels cars

    and my trusty powell-peralta skateboard
     
  10. I used to play with Legos, playmobils, mastermind and those trippy 8o's toys.
    I was thinking about that the other day, toys in the 80's where kinda physcedelic, mind tripping. Maybe because the people who made them where consuming large ammounts of LSD when younger, during the 60's and the 70's.
    Plus the fact that violence didnt exist that much, it was all about Logic combined with some drug related glowing moment of imagination.
    I am pretty much anti-hippie and i concider video games fun,
    but i gotta say that oldschool toys where really well put as a concept,
    educationally and fun.

    in general, older toys were so much bette.r they were much more interesting. now you dont even see kids running around playing army. they're doing dork shit like pokemon. WE'RE RAISING A NATION OF FRUITCAKES PEOPLE!

    it's annoying how kids get all nostalgic over stupid shit like ninja turtles and transformers. they buy shirts and try to get into it again.. sad....
