Last night I remembered this ultra cool toy I used to have.. I couldn't remember the exact title so I searched it this morning. It was a Terminator 2 Bio Flesh Regenerator ! You mix up powder and water and you push down a plunger that shoots it into a mold, over a plastic endoskeleton and you end up with a 'flesh' covered Terminator for you to rip bits of his skin off ! Ah, they don't make them like that anymore !!



I wish I still had it as it is totally rare now...

What toys were your favourite when you were growing up ? (Or still are ???) biggrin.gif

Haha, that's good that you kept them. It reminds me that I had WWF Wrestling action figures and a Jack Slater figure which was Schwarzenegger's character in Last Action Hero smile.gif

Wow, that Terminator toy is amazing. Reminds me of those sweet making sets, but they'd make it look like you were in a mad scientist's laboratory. They never turned out so well, for me.

I used to have a toy panda that I was really fond of until my lovely sister ripped his legs off. In retalliation I set her barbie on fire wink.gif . I was only 5 at the time though.

Otherwise I never really had many toys - probably why I spend lots of money on mastering equpiment now a days biggrin.gif .

Whoa, nice way to take your revenge tongue.gif. Ben's right, I wouldnt have messed with you either.

My favorite toys, my He-Man action figure, and my Beyblade, which was a pretty nice, one my aunt had gift me. smile.gif I think it was Dragoon GT Turbo, if I remember right, but it was lost, piece by piece, literally.

Aside from the action figures - Ninja Turtles were my favorites - I was very, BUT VERY fond of Lego. I could literally spend 6-7 hrs a day building all sorts of imaginary contraptions or landscapes and scenarios out of Lego pieces.

I amassed vast quantities starting from 1990 to 1997 so that's the period in which the true engineer inside me had to enjoy his glory laugh.gif
