    What was the playset that came with little plastic rivets that you had to melt in place!? I loved that thing. 2nd degree burns and plastic stuck in the carpet; good times!

LOL, here ya go, "Now Uz like cheeseburgers and 70's toys!" Not that I really care about the rep thing...just thought about it though and love to pick on the concept.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned any of these:







    And the next I still have. My brother and I found it in the attic when my parents moved a few years ago. My brother and and I plugged it in and spent the next several hours reliving our childhood......and not moving anything they wanted us to move.

    Ah, yes. You've just reminded me of Atari's Stunt Cycle.

    Beats the heck out of my big wheel when i was little but it looks like they based it on the green machine when it comes to locking the wheels to spin it.

    1975 made by Atari for Sears' Telegames brand.

    1978 magnavox

    and my 2600. There's about 15 others out there that are basically pong and a few others.

    I had the Honda Kick-n-Go. Kicking on the rear foot peg moved the scooter forward. This one is missing the black rubber foot gripper on the main resting area.

    I still have my Intellivision (mine is a Sears model which was molded in off white the Mattel games worked and Sears made their own games which were the exact same as Mattel's)

    Sea Battle was the shiz and how bad ass was D&D ( the version with the maze where everything was green until you explored the area and it opened up: still hate those damn bats ! )

    Intellivision is on my list to get. I have a complete list of all the game systems from then. Oddly enough the pong games are only worth about 60.00 if they have the boxes and manuals. You'd think they'd be worth more.

    I still have my original BSG Viper too! (However the stickers have long since dried up and fell off, and it is the "non-firing" version).

    Oh and here's a rare one I've managed to hang onto:

    These were all awesome.

    I had all three.

    Forgot about the Starbird. Why was that one so killer...but it was.

    TOMY Rascal Robots - I loved these little guys when I was 8 years old. I am currently building a replica 12" version.

    Ah man - remember these too. I had a silver one with a purple head.

    Can't wait to see your 12".

    MY GOD MAN!!!! You need to put a warning on this thread, Memories may smack you up side the head! LOL....
    I was always a Star Wars fanatic, but had Godzilla, Shogun Warriors, Green Machine, the Spider-Man big wheel, all the super hero figs, but the Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle was the best.
    Had the Stompers too and I was a 2nd version GI Joe fan too...the 3 inch ones, my jewel of the collection was the Terror Drome, and the FLAGG...It was like 6 ft long my mom hated it. lol....
    I always wanted the Stormtrooper gun, had the Solo pistol but never the rifle...

    Wasn't there a game where you ran a Plane that was set over a round ground that turned like a record and you had to drop and bomb on a target as it went by? My memory is fuzzy and I think there was but can't remember if there was.

    One of my top two...

    Still have the figure, out of package (and well-used!) of course.

    Also had the Oscar figure, and Mask-a-tron, plus the rocket/hospital bed.

    Good times!
