    Nostalgic toys

    Stumbles across this; brought back alot of memories, since I had most of those.

    [URL="http://www.timewarptoys.com/toptoys.htm"]http://www.timewarptoys.com/toptoys.htm[/URL]

    Hands Up Harry, Gaylord, the James Bond set, Air Blaster, Chimp on Roller Skates. About 2 years ago I bought a Major Matt Mason off of ebay with some of the accessories.

    Anyone remember the Colorform's Outer Space Men? I had the Octopus dude from Neptune, Astro-Nautilus.

    One of the first things I did when I got on line was hunt down Major Matt Mason. My recollections of playing with the Matt Mason figures are just on the fuzzy periphery of my memory. Initially I could only remember the name, but as soon as I saw a pic of the figures memories came flooding back... The green alien dude, the wires breaking through the rubber exterior, the helmets with the little working visors... I was three or four years old when I played with them back in the late sixties. It's crazy that forty years on I have one hanging off the vanity mirror in my en suite keeping me company as I shave off the grey.

    Orange track = swords, cars = grenades, me + 3 younger brothers adds up to toy armageddon!

    I got my son hooked on Hot Wheels and at 9, he's still playing with them despite his video console addiction.

    Was that the one where you spun an arrow to determine a hit, an out, a DP, etc.? Simplicity itself, and my brothers and I actually kept record books as we played our "seasons."

    There's an excel based program that will make the disks for you. All you have to do is plug in the stats, then print the disks on card stock and cut them out.
