Funny iv'e seen so many vintage toys for sale for ridiculous prices, and I just kick myself, because I had so many of them, and treated a lot of them like crap....haha! wish i took care of my stuff and made it last, they just don't build toys like that anymore. and also weird to see some stuff they consider vintage now, and im like shit! im getting old...LOL

That is bad ass...

How about the original army men? I must have spent a third of my childhood playing with them.

Laying down rifle guy
Standing rifle guy
Crawling guy
Mortor guy
Bazooka guy
Running guy
Grenade guy

They all thought they were tough until they met Mr M80 lol

YES, that is the airport, and the 'euroscape' that has been added to it since 2011 .

What a job, building and playing with 'miniature life like models' .................

It was the Lego pieces that always seemed to get the loudest and most vulgar results from my old man. That trait I found when I had kids.

Kind of like Baseball cards:

When you are 8 years old they are pictures of your idols. When your 40, they are pictures of other men.

I have a shit tone of GI Joe And transformer stuff I kept from when I was a kid. I have the F14 that goes with the aircraft carrier above as well as the cobra SR22 plane. I actually pulled a bag of stuff out and gave them to my 7 year old to play with. He likes them. Figure they're used and I saved them with having my kids play with them someday so, keeping true tommy word. ;)

When I was a kid it was the big GI Joes, Johnny West, Noble Knights and Major Matt Mason. I wish I had kept all the ones I had instead of destroying them, like the little stupid kid I was. :rolleyes
