Default 80's Kids... THIS Thread Is For YOU!

Yes, I am still alive and well LOL! I mostly collect '80's action figures at the moment so here's a bunch of photos of what I've been up to over the last few years! Wasn't sure which forum category to post in, figured I would go with the 80's one! If you were also into the golden age of action figures like I was hopefully you see some old favourites in this thread. And yes, I did throw in some sports stuff too!

That stuff is awesome. I am a little old for 80s toys. My much younger brother had tons of them. A few years ago I got several totes full of GI Joe stuff from him I sold on eBay.

I kept the life raft, the Wade Boggs character, the sailor guy, and the cool purple guy. Boggs is my favorite player, the sailor guy was my brothers favorite, and I thought the purple guy was the coolest looking.

You had to throw that Dit Clapper signed Beehive card in, didn't you, Jeff?

Welcome back.

Did you take a full on break from cards/sports memorabilia to concentrate on those action figures or did you still dabble here and there?

Prior to covid shutting everything down, I was starting to attend some local card shows and was really looking forward to checking out garage and yard sales, flea markets and some auctions, but, of course, all that was dashed, unfortunately.
Still dabbling here and there with EBay sellers, mostly CDN ones, but it certainly isn't the same as what I was hoping it would be.

Awesome collection. As a child of the 80's, it was a walk down my childhood. I loved The Transformers and Masters of the Universe....Now, if only you had Thundercats.

Awesome collection Jeff. If you're ever in Lincoln, Nebraska I own two toy stores that specialize in vintage toys. I have or have had pretty much everything in your pics.

My stores were recently featured by Bloomberg:

I think I might have been a little too early for most of these, but then again I don't really remember most of the odd toys we had. I recall the more common Hot Wheels/Matchbox cars, Legos, the green army men and I want to say we either had, or friends had and we coveted stretch armstrong and rock em sock em robots. I also recall a smash up derby car set that had pop off pieces when they collided with each other.

Star Wars figures were popular as well and we had a bunch of figures, but don't think we ever had any of the larger toys.

When I got into baseball, a lot of the toys took a back seat to sports and then when video games came out like Intellivision and early Atari games, that was it.

Oh... I am that kid too. Well, at least with baseball/football cards and Star Wars. This stuff is "integrated" throughout my collection. Including the error card shelf (if you don't know about the Star Wars error card... look closely, but don't let it poke out your eye). And if you are really into Star Wars, you'll know the significance of the unopened figures. These were things my mom bought for presents, but never got around to giving me. Turned out to be a really good thing.

Very nice stuff. I feel bad not saying the GI Joes or Transformers are my favorites on the bunch, but for some reason the Voltron stuff is my favorite in the pics. And I think I did see some Thundercats figures in there if I'm not mistaken.

I took my time looking at the pics and it was very enjoyable...thanks for sharing all of them.

Fun thread idea. I can relate to this because as a child of the late 70's and 80's, I had many Star Wars, GI Joe, and Transformer toys. While some of them were sold off in garage sales over the years, the vast majority survived and were in storage in my parents' home until a couple years ago when my mom finally wanted that "junk" out of her basement.

I enjoyed going through them, but I realized, for the most part, I didn't really have any interest in collecting vintage toys or making a display out of them, and they weren't doing any good sitting in boxes in my basement. So over the last year and a half I sold pretty much everything on eBay.

Some of you may not be aware, but just as the interest (and prices) of baseball cards has been rising recently, I realized the is true of some vintage toys. And luckily, as a kid, I kept good care of my toys, ensured no parts were lost, kept a lot of the original boxes, etc., etc.

My goal was to sell my entire collection of toys and use the money to buy a key baseball card that I've had my eyes on for the last few years. And almost down to the exact dollar amount, the profit I made from selling my toys paid for this:

Mantle.JPG


So it was a very fun endeavor. It made it much easier to sell off my old childhood treasures knowing that I was going to spend it on something FUN that I would enjoy, instead of bills, etc. And it made it much easier to justify to my wife to buy an expensive baseball card without having to use ANY of our standard savings, checking, college account money, etc.

I kept a couple of my earliest toys around just because (a beat up R2 and C-3PO, and old Bobba Fett, etc.) but all the rest are now spread around the country...hopefully being displayed by another collector that gets just as much joy out of those toys that I get out of my cards.

Although I no longer have them, here are a few pictures of some of the nicer and rarer toys that helped fund my Mantle:

I tried to sell my original Megatron in the original box with all parts on eBay and eBay took down my listing. Why? Because it was the original figure that didn't have an orange tip on the end of the gun barrel. I've been told it's illegal to sell it these days, but I found a comics and toys shop in PA that took it along with several other toys and comics that I had. It helped pay for Christmas for my kids when I was out of work and wasn't getting a paycheck for a while.

I can't believe there is not more interest in this thread as there must be a lot of 80's kids on the board that remember these toys.

Andy

I just saw this thread right now, and wow, it brought back so many memories ... sniff*

I was born in 83' and by the time I was about three years old, my father started buying me all the best toys out there. Screw 86' Fleer basketball, man, I would probably run past boxes of them and go straight to the toy section! I remember ThunderCats, Ghostbusters, He-man, Cops, and I just loved the Ninja Turtles too (I almost got the Technodrome once, but I ended up not getting it - can't remember why though!) Now the thing is, I was very small back then and I would just break these toys and make my parents buy me more. It wasn't until the early 90s when I really started to take care and enjoy them more. When Batman the Animated Series came out, I was hooked! I remember watching the very first episode - my poor older sister was forced to watch them with me - and yes, I went after all the action figures as well. I remember the Robin figure was pretty hard to find, and the Toys"R"Us I used to go to never had it! However, one day I managed to track it down and I was over the moon!

G.I. Joe was very popular too, and I remember owning a couple of figures, but I was never much of a fan. I remember Transformers too, but I am not sure if I owned any action figures. And finally, I don't remember seeing a single Star Wars figure anywhere! And I'm not only talking about the shops here. Even among my large circle of friends, nobody owned a Star Wars figure.

Anyways, let me post a few pictures below of the best toys I used to once own:



It's crime fighting time! I had two or three of Bulletproof! He was my favorite!



Peter Venkman was my favorite Ghosterbuster and I had more than one of this toy!



This Robin figure was so tough to find! And when I finally got it, I took really good care of it!

Great stuff everyone, love all of your vintage toy pics (especially the carded last 17 Star Wars figures!). Those carded last 17 figures are worth a pretty penny!

This thread is amazing. Jeff, your collection is simply breathtaking. Seeing so many toys I either owned, or coveted in a catalog or friend's collection back then... Wow.

The last time I was at my folks house I found the old GI Joe Polar Battle Bear that I ordered from GI Joe directly, and they sent me two. One is still in the brown shipping box from Hasbro, sealed in plastic, unassembled. I also brought home my remaining Thundercats and Transformers.

When I was a kid, I was playing with all of my Transformers in my grandmother's yard, and left them out when I came inside for lunch. Unfortunately, that's when my uncle decided to mow the lawn. You can guess what happened. I think 3-4 out of 30 or so came out intact. That was basically when I stopped playing with Transformers.

Star Wars, He-Man, GI Joe and Transformers!!! That sums up my childhood from 1981-1987 in a nutshell. 1988 is when sports and sports cards took over and began my addiction to the world of baseball memorabilia.
