Man, I had a GI JOE tank that could go freakin anywhere. It had rubber tracks and the whole deal. My buddy and I tried to save up for the cobra command center but we never quite got there.

Nice, I wish my mom hadn't gave away all of my GI Joe stuff. My boy Gunner would love it if we still had it.

You youngsters!

Knight Rider debuted the same time the firebird's new body style came out. When the show came out I was looking to buy my first car. I also had the hots for Bonnie, K.i.t.t.'s mechanic.

I was a gi joe fanatic. I had about 250 figures, all the bases, most of the vehicles and the 7.5 ft aircraft carrier. I sold it all for 50$ :cry: I wish I still had it all, I could make some serious cash on it now. I think the tank your speaking of was the m.o.b.a.t. maybe? driver named mauler or somthing?

are they worth a lot now? there the only thing I ever collected as a kid, I didn't get into baseball cards or comic books.

I was selling water damaged gpk's at about 10-20$ for 50 or so. if you have them in good shape they are worth some money. they guy who did them did a new gpk series a few years ago and the nostalga put the old ones in high demand.

My friends both had the transformer big wheel, I was so jealous.

Ive seen the version 1 stormshadow mint on card and graded high go on ebay for like 2k$ :o

I sold a few loose straight arms I had found at goodwill last year, got decent money from them as well. oddly enough if you have broken vehicle/figure parts you can get nearly as much for them as anything.

I have one loose figure I still havent been able to part with. a 1984 loose firefly near mint with original gun. he sits right here on my desk to remind me how old I am :lol:

I've still got some GI Joe stuff in storage. None of it in good condition of course, but at least I was wise enough to keep it away from my cousins and nephews and after I got too old for it...an F-14 style jet with retractable wings, a Cobra fan boat, and some random figurines. The jet still has ejection seats with working parachutes...those were fun. I did have a helicopter that had a winch and a thumb operated rotor, but I broke that.
Also, a triple changer transformer heli / dune buggy / robot, and a couple other small transformers. I'm thinking I'll wait a few years to liquidate that stuff.

GI Joe figures were fun. Eventually my brothers and I ended up taking them all apart and putting them together mix and matched. It doesn't get any better than a storm shadow/snake eyes hybrid. Finally we graduated from rebuilding them to watching them burn with homemade napalm. My brother has some good burn scars to show for it.

Crazy Calypso Chips - Says they are made by Wise..but I swear they used to be made by Jays. They were a caribbean flavored chip, sweet and spicy.

Big League Chewing Gum - This stuff was great, shredded bubble gum and came in a small choice of flavors. I have looked for this stuff quite a bit and no one seems to sell it.

Not really a snack food here, but pertains to them. Anyone remember when a quarter was actully worth alot? You could go to the store and pick up little bags of chips, or any number of Little Debbie snacks, or even a pack of gum. Now most of them are 30 cents and higher, even the little 5 stick packs of gum are 30 cents each. :( Not a huge difference, just a silly gripe .

Bazooka Joe Gum - One day it just dropped off the face of the planet..at the least dropped out of Mich.

Ecto Cooler - Ahh the memories, this stuff was sooo good.

Speaking of drinks what happened to Great Bluedini Kool -Aid? They replaced it with some weird blue rasberry lemondae stuff...but its just not the same :(.

Coke 2 / Pepsi Clear/ Edge energy cola - Coke 2 didnt taste any different then normal Coke, but I could actully go for one right now. Pepsi clear tasted so bad...that it was actully kinda good. Edge took some getting used to but was an overall good drink.

Orbitz - god I am glad that trip is over. What would makes someone put floating chunks of "solidified goo" into an already disgusting soda?

New York Seltzer - flavored seltzer water , actully pretty good stuff.

Clearly Canadian - flavored carbonated water, good stuff...sadly..this is the same company that made Orbitz.

Misc other things they discontinued that they never should have:

Micro Machines - Tiny little cars that came in almost any style you can think of.
Micro Machines owned Hot Wheels...sorry :P

Monster in my Pocket - little rubber monsters, that had a power number on their backs, strongest one usally won the fight..or was it the strongest kid won? Hmm either way.

Battle Beasts - Little monster guys with moveable arms, and a couple weapons, they had a heat sensitive thing on their chests that told their element when you put your finger on it.

M.U.S.C.L.E. Men - little soft plastic wrestling guys that came in hundreds and hundreds of different poses and styles.

My Pet Monster - Kinda like a guys version of a teddy bear. He was pretty ugly but still cool, came with little chains around his wrists.

Thats it for now..I know there is more but I can't think of any off the top of my head.
I'm neither a bear, nor a cheetah..I'm a WOLVERINE!
