Takin’ It Back: Best Toys Evar (part 1)

Today we look at what I’ll call the first multi-part series of Takin’ It Back, covering popular toys of days past. In this week’s installment, we discuss some of the best toy action figures.

There’s no doubt about it, Transformers were the shiznit of all action figures, and still are among most modern toys today. You can’t beat having a humanoid robot figurine and a vehicle all in one. A close runner up were the Voltron toys. While the lions were cool, it was all about the lesser known vehicle collab. I had the entire vehicle collection at one point in time, but [sadly] was lost thanks to my mom’s generosity to Goodwill.

Damn donations… I want my Voltron back.

  1. Arguably the best toy line ever. Recently they’ve been ressurected and now crossing with other franchises, such as the Star Wars transformers my nephews love.

    Dinobots ruled.

  2. Nothing beats the Megatron that actually fires little plastic bullets.

  3. i own an original generation two megatron and optimus. the optimus set i have is a “movie edition” release that came out with the old cartoon movie back in the day. the only thing special about it was a stupid certificate that came in the box.
