Todays kids feel sorry for kids of the 80's no xbox, playstation cellphones, apps, ipod, ipad. I wonder what toys the future holds?

My son has a room full of Lego Bionicles, a bag full of GI Joe's and half of them become zombies in a floor fight (he's 15...go figure... and still cool...just a closet toy type of guy I guess). He has StarWars minifigs and transformers and he is the hero in halo reach and black ops! I think he is doing ok.

Transformers and TMNT all the way. I still have my original Optimus. He's missing a wheel and smoke stacks, but still in decent shape.

I collect all types.

I was only born in 1987, but I do remember fondly watching TMNT and sometimes GI.JOE, but I'd say the cartoons of the early 90's weren't bad either. Way more edgy I think than today's cartoons.

I think GI Joe toys back in the 1980's were a lot cooler, e.g., the Skystriker, Dragonfly helicopter. The vehicles that they make today are pretty weak by comparison.

Star Wars toys were cool back in the 80's, but the toys they have now are more detailed with more features. The AT-AT and Millenium Falcon available now are bigger with more features, even addressing some of the things I wished as a kid that the original versions had. They're very cool.

70's.

toys:
Original star wars action figures. Stretch armstrong. TCR slotless slotcar racing. Hot wheels tracks that you clamped onto the edge of a table and built loops & jumps. Atari 2600. big wheel & mean green machine. fiberglass banana skateboards. Green army men. REAL GI Joes (the one that nailed barbie when Ken was out of town). Six Million Dollar Man action figure that was 12" tall and you could look through his bionic eye through that hole in the back of his head.

movies, cartoons & tv: startrek in syndication EVERY DAY. Star wars in it's original release. Battlestar galactica, The Hulk, Dukes of Hazard, BJ & The bear, space 1999, CHiPs, Happy Days, Charlie's Angels, SWAT, 6 million dollar man, Starsky & Hutch, Kung Fu, Hawaii 5-0, & the Muppet show on tv. just about every one of those shows had either toys or a lunchbox you could buy. Cartoons like fat albert, scooby doo, starblazers, loony tunes, space ghost, superfriends, flintstones, yogi bear, top cat, underdog, etc.

I was born in 1980 so for me it's no question that the 80's were the best
