    I think all of the toys/playthings in this thread have been given a second life thanks to Robot Chicken.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    My cobbling is so much better today than it would have been if I hadn't had this. Really dodged a bullet there.

    Board games from my distant teen years (post-Dungeons & Dragons)


    Duran Duran - Into the Arena: This was the most needlessly complicated board game I've ever attempted to play. A few friends had it back in the day, and every time we'd attempt a round, we'd give up before getting halfway through the instructions. Years later, a kitschy pal had a copy, and despite getting hopelessly drunk, we were still unable to crack the code and play it. Alas...


    Dealer McDope: A friend's parents had this alongside other "hip" board games in their collection. I don't remember anything about it other than the fact that I was a lousy dope dealer.


    Scotland Yard: Appealed to the Anglophile in me, but was also an awful lot of fun. I think it's somewhere in the attic of my mother's house, so I might seek it out next time I visit.

    I guess that explains why you don't see them in stores anymore. I was just at Wal-Mart and didn't see any for sale.

    My parents use to own this game, it was a drinking game prior to people bouncing quarters in shot glasses. My sister and I use to pretend play with glasses of water and candy cigarettes.

    My favorite toys, aside from Lego, were always those very small toys like Mighty Max, Micro Machines, and Mico Machines Star Wars. I also had these other small toys that were space monsters, and they were sort of themed in different colors - I think, red and blue and green - and they came in these spaceship things. I tried looking for them on Google, but I couldn't find them.

    Another Micro Machines toy that was my favorite was ZBOTS. This thing was hours of fun:





    They stopped making small toys, I think, because children would choke on them. Because eventually in my childhood, I could no longer find a lot of these kinds of toys.

    Omnibot was ahead of his time. There was a mic on the remote, so you could talk through his speakers. It took cassette tapes where you could record macros of his movements and set times for those macros to activate and send him off through the house. He had a tray (not pictured) where I would send drinks to guests on Bunco nights. My pets were not impressed.

    Was forced to play this with my older sister and her friends. It was not all bad, ended up getting my first kiss due to this game. (Sisters friend, who I had a crush on)

    I loved my hot wheel, I think I have a very similar picture somewhere, I even had the same hair cut.

    You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.

    Truth! oh and don't forget that hand brake. BAD! ASS! We use to cruise down the driveway for the church in to the parking, then at the bottom we'd yank the brake and skid. Pretty ballsy back then.
