    Inchworm was awesome. I have been trying to sell mine for a while. It's size just makes shipping a little high.

    Loved the dinosaurs as well.

    The Tracer Toy Disk Gun. They still sell vintage ones on ebay for anywhere from $50 to hundreds.

    The Remco Star Trek belt was, along with my Mego Spock, my favorite toy in the 70s. The belt was thick black plastic with a chromed rim around the buckle, held a phaser, communicator and tricorder. The phaser shot those plastic disks, just like the tracer gun a few posts above...

    Remco also made similar belts with various gear for Space 1999 but also, weirdly, Spiderman, the Hulk, Superman, Batman (not so odd for him).

    Anyone ever have one like this? Mine looked pretty close to this but a little different. It shot the discs out by rubber band power and the top funnel was for catching dics shot at you. Once you caught a disc it would go right back into the loader. However I was the only child who had one so I never got to use the "catcher" as no one else had a gun to shoot the discs back at me. Wah!

    Any so many Airfix kits. As you can see my childhood was greatly influenced by Gerry Anderson. Still love his shows at 54!
    Home made skateboard using my sisters skates ( pic not mine though). My Dad also made me a wooden painted Captain America Shield which was fantastic, heavy, had hose grips and never returned when thrown LOL.

    Finally, one of the greatest ever toys for our generation

    I had the SW action transfers as a kid. I think right after ROTJ came out they stopped making them because I never remember having any other than ESB/ROTJ.

    Not exactly a toy, not exactly the 70s, but check out this ad I found in an old 1981 Marvel team-up.

    This set was really cool because you could spin around . There were a few different sets, but we had the police chase.

    What's wrong with Clarksville TN? Are you assuming that because it is in the South they wouldn't endorse a black guy?

    Despite what you may think, The South is not just one big cesspool of racist, inbred rednecks.
