    Never saw that one.
    Me neither. I do remember seeing things like that in the Christmas catalogs all the time though. I pull stuff out like that any time my nephew would complain about being bored and not having a game to play (despite having at least, probably more, 30 360 and Xbox One games).

    I had this. A mechanical arm moved an LED across the screen. It got set in motion by winding it up. You had to press the right button to basically lower a gate which kept the LED moving back toward the other side.

    These are some of my favorite toys I had and played with in the late 70s, early 80s, along with plenty of GI Joe, Star Wars, and Transformers.

    I LOVED the Mask toys! I was "too old" for them, but my brother, who has a December birthday, got the whole collection for his birthday and Christmas. I played with those things every chance I had.

    I was shocked to find it in my attic after coming home from college, in the 90's. I even remembered to take out the batteries before putting it away. It's our go to board game, and my 11 year old son LOVES playing with his friends, who've never seen it either.

    Got the Micronauts because there was no Star Wars at the time. Loved 'em.

    I had a bunch of MUSCLE figures. I think I missed the Micronauts (born in 77). Either that or I was too busy with SW, Transformers, GI JOE, MASK, etc.

    I have no photos, but when I was a little kid I had the big Marx Bulldozer, Great Garloo, Girder & Panel bridge and turnpike set. Chemistry Set. Telescope. Lots of American Flyer Model Railroad stuff. I also had a Motorific Rolls Royce.

    I still have my old MUSCLE figured. Actually I have pretty much all my old toys. All of them in played with condition so I doubt they are work anything. I saw recently Super7 is making MUSCLE style figure for lines like Aliens, Transformers, and I think He-Man.

    I still have one of these! Well, I think technically my dad confiscated it because it stays at their house in his "office". I'm pretty sure it still works too.

    I had, and still have, the Micronauts I had when I was a kid. One of them was missing a few pieces, an arm, both feet, but I was able to replace them. I also had a somewhat large collection of MUSCLE figures...even had the wrestling ring, but I sold all of them a few years ago to fund a costume project that ultimately sat around for to many years and I sold off at a huge loss.

    I sadly sold off a TON of stuff for a Boba Fett build I never got around to. Also for a loss. Now that I have time again, I wish I had it all back!

    Yeah, seam here. Although looking back I remember telling myself, "this stuff is just sitting in a box in my garage and has been for years...what's the point of keeping it?".

    Catch 22.

    I have one these in storage. With the box. Of course the box is beat up and I have no idea what condition the carrier is in since I played with it as a kid.

    I had the van, but usually my GI Joes used it. I had the Mr. T figure because I just looked and saw it came with him, but I don't remember.
